Pau Gasol will sit indefinitely due to tendinitis in both knees, but sources say it is not because a trade is in the works by the Los Angeles Lakers.

But a source said that Mitch Kupchak recently spoke with Gasol's representatives that the Lakers would explore trade possibilities if he cannot adjust to Mike D'Antoni's system.

Gasol is averaging 12.6 points and 42 percent shooting, both career lows, and 8.8 rebounds per game.
