So it's a safe bet too that they wont give him up esp when they traded Korver and Ronnie Brewer. In connection with that, the Bulls seemed bent on saving $ when they let Asik walk so I don't see them paying Pau but I could be wrong.
Gasol puts them over the top while Asik was a solid bench contributor.
Noah/Gasol is as good as it gets....
i read somewhere(take with grain of salt) Bulls were ready to trade for gasol by giving Deng/Butler...Lakers wanted Charlotte pick too...bulls said no
I think lakers will trade pau this summer if they get a blockbuster deal...and if not they will keep him...
Ask MWP to opt out of his contract...give him small contract...if pau is traded...
then trade blake for cap space or amnesty him saving 17mil $$$
