Seriously guys, there is no point worrying. Some of you are getting so worked up, which is understandable, but silly at the same time. You just have to hope for the best, and see what happens.

I give it a 20% chance we will even trade pau this season. Might as well wait till the off season. This season is over might as well trade him in the offseason when he's more valuable

I still dont think he will be traded mainly cuz he will be worth much more in the offseason. I think the FO has marked this as a done season and are just gonna try to reload in the offseason. I dont blame them right now.

People fail to realize that pau was ballin while we had mike Brown the first 5 games n he was pretty good when we had bickerstaff but once dantoni stepped in things went downhill so it really is the man's system that's [expletive]in gasol's game up. I don't want him 2 go,obviously Kobe wants em 2 stay. I said this b4,Lakers aren't gonna trade gasol bcuz they don't no if Howard is stayin. Y trade gasol,lose Howard n be up [expletive] creek with 2 big men gone!?!?!?!

They still made a ton of money. Until ticket sales go down, which they wont, then the money went down the toilet.

Pasol has been sucking since the mavs series with Phil. He needs to go.

Dallas - 23/16
Portland - 14/5
Clippers - 10/14
Detroit - 14/5
Utah - 5/7

Outside of the first game against Dallas, that's not technically ballin' in the other four following

He averaged 41% shooting those first 5 games with 13 points a game. Not exactly balling.

I still don't see the logic in waiting until the offseason to trade Pau.

A team trading for him because he's expiring would most likely want the Lakers to take on a big contact, which isn't happening. The Lakers don't have the assets along with his expiring to get something great.

No a player who is has such a huge expiring contract is extremely valuable for teams that are rebuilding. Gives them massive cap room in 2014.

also teams are much more willing to trade in the offseason. Why limit our trade offers to trade offers like the raptors when that wouldn't even do anything for this season and when this season is already over. Might as well get as much out of pau as possible.

This season is over. To trade pau for some ok players just to improve this season would not be the best plan. We must plan for next season right now.

Trade market for Pau Gasol complicated because Lakers have made clear that they don't want back long-term money in deal, league sources say.

What are some examples of great players getting traded for just expirings? Pau was traded for expirings, draft picks, and the rights to Marc Gasol. Pau's expiring by itself isn't going to attract anything that the Lakers would want to sacrifice their 2014 cap space for.

It's not just to save this season. I don't think his value is going to get any better.

Could the Lakers not wanting to take back long term money simply mean they're not willing to take on a "Chris Duhon" type contract for the filler players in the trade, but for the prize player in the trade, contract length doesn't matter?

Even the Lakers - flush with cash - don't want the tax burden of Dwight Howard (assuming he signs), Kobe Bryant and a third massive salary.
