Nothing appears imminent at this point, however.

Gasol was in the Lakers' proposed to trade to acquire Chris Paul before the start of the 11-12 season.

Sources told ESPN that the Lakers have been in contact with teams to acquire a top-10 pick. Gasol could be dealt to acquire an established player and one such pick.
