I do believe they are actively shopping him. You don't pay someone 19 million to come off the bench. I just don't see what team could use him. Everybody keeps mentioning Detroit, because they see all that cap space they have. They must have never watched a game though, because they have a guy named Greg Monroe who's game is a lot like Pau's, who's on a much smaller contract, and who's still very young. They also have Drummond so I don't see how Pau fits in there.
Toronto isn't a landing spot anymore. They just took on that contract of Gay's so I don't see how they would pull off another deal.
Houston has always been in the rumors, although they don't seem interested.
So, I'm certain the Lakers would love to get some young pieces in place of him. I just don't know how it can happen anymore. David Stern really messed the Lakers up with that Chris Paul trade.
