The Los Angeles Lakers have not discussed a contract extension for Pau Gasol at this point, and the veteran forward believes the chances of a new deal will depend on his performance this season.

"If the team is interested, they will approach me and at some point there will be some kind of meeting," Gasol said. "But I’m not sure when or how. I think it’s going to depend on how I perform during the season. The better I perform, I’m sure the more interested they will be to try to sign me, I guess."

Gasol, who will make $19.3 million in the final season of his current contract, is still working to regain full health entering opening night.

"I’ve learned to live my life on a daily basis and try to have fun in the process," Gasol said.
