The Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers are back at trying to form a trade involving an All-Star and former NBA champion.
The Bulls will be slightly disappointed to know that the Lakers aren't going to offer them Kobe Bryant for the low price of Luol Deng, Joakim Noah and Tyrus Thomas. That ship has sailed forever and fallen off the edge of the earth.
However, they may have another chance to secure a Lakers by All-Star. The Lakers may have grown disappointed with Pau Gasol's play over the past two years and might be interested in moving him. The team that he is predicted to go to by Bulls.com, the Chicago Bulls, would become the team ready to take a risk on Gasol.
Gasol will be 32-years-old in July and is coming off the two worst postseasons of his career. After a disappointing run against New Orleans and Dallas last year, Gasol failed to make up for it with lacking performances against Denver and Oklahoma City. His averages in the postseason the past two years were the lowest of his career.
Now the Bulls may be interested. However, we have plenty of reason to believe this trade won't happen for these seven reasons.
