Report: Pau Gasol to meet Thunder, Bulls, Warriors, maybe Lakers
Free-agent-to-be Pau Gasol will reportedly meet with several teams.
Pau Gasol will meet with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Chicago Bulls and Golden State Warriors in free agency, according to the Los Angeles Times' Mike Bresnahan, who added that Gasol "might" talk with the Los Angeles Lakers, too.
Gasol has been linked to several other teams. The New York Knicks are reportedly going to go after him, which would reunite the big man with Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher. The Dallas Mavericks are expected to make a pitch, too. Due to the presence of his brother, Marc, it has long been assumed the Memphis Grizzlies would be a possibility, but the re-signing of Zach Randolph might get in the way of that scenario.
The 34-year-old Gasol has said repeatedly that the main factor for him will be winning, not money, and you can understand where he's coming from after the past couple of seasons with the Lakers. It then makes sense that he would want to talk to the Thunder, Bulls and Warriors -- he would be only a role player, but he could be the missing piece they need. At this stage of his career, he still has a lot to offer a lot offensively in situations like that.
