The Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly trying to trade Pau Gasol for a top 10 pick, and a veteran player, according to ESPN.com:
 
The Los Angeles Lakers have been checking around the league this week to gauge Pau Gasol's trade value, according to sources briefed on the discussions.
 
Sources told ESPN.com that the Lakers have been contacting teams in an effort to acquire a top-10 pick in Thursday's draft. The Lakers also are seeking an established player along with the pick if they're to part with Gasol.
 
Will Gasol finally get out of Los Angeles? I think it's about time. After all of the franchise's attempts to get rid of him, it's time Gasol finds happiness some other place. 
 
This year's draft apparently has several players that have great potential, and the Lakers are looking to take advantage of that. Trading Gasol would free up cap space, and give them an opportunity to rebuild with a young talented player, who could be their next guy.
