Pau Gasol Trade Rumors: Chicago Bulls Trying To Trade For Lakers' Big Man, According To Report

Los Angeles Lakers big man Pau Gasol is a player that could be moved before the 2012 NBA trade deadline, and the latest rumor has another big-market team vying for his services. Looking to upgrade their core for the playoffs, the Chicago Bulls are looking to deal for the Lakers' star, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

It's not immediately clear what the Bulls would deal back to the Lakers. Los Angeles is still looking to contend as well, but Gasol's future has been up in the air ever since he was a part of a vetoed deal that would have brought Chris Paul to the Lakers. He has struggled to fit into Mike Brown's system, especially with Andrew Bynum's emergence.
