Per a report by ESPNLA,  the Oklahoma City Thunder have become the frontrunners to land free agent Pau Gasol.

ESPN’s Marc Stein reported earlier in the week that Gasol and the Lakers met today, and he will meet with the Bulls tomorrow.

Gasol averaged 17.4 points, and 9.7 rebounds a game last year for the Lakers. He is 33-years-old but still has a lot in him and plenty of years left in his career.

Reminder: Serge Ibaka and Gasol are close friends, as they played on the Spain national team together in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.

    Who will we trade to land Gasol? And who would the Lakers be willing to take? Unless it were a three way trade. My guess if anyone would go out it would be Reggie or Perk. Again it is depending on who LA would take /want
