Sources throughout the NBA tell Peter Vecsey that Pau Gasol has asked for a trade to a playoff contender and that the Grizzlies will attempt to oblige.
Jerry West has reportedly discussed a trade with three teams, one of them being Chicago.
Talks have centered around Ben Gordon and Luol Deng.
“Giving up Gordon and Deng would be very difficult,” a Bulls insider insisted. “John will never go there. Not even if Scott Skiles and the rest of the coaching staff is beating on him to make that swap, which isn’t the case.”
