-Pau Gasol, the subject of many trade rumors, could still be dealt. He isn’t happy about all the rumors, telling ESPN: “It fills up a lot of pages and [expletive airtime]. “It’s something that’s there and there’s potential that it might happen. Who knows?.” Gasol said that he hopes that he doesn’t get traded. The Charlotte Bobcats are a rumored player for Gasol, but a source downplayed the likelihood to the Charlotte Observer.
