Celtics Interested In Pau Gasol

The Celtics have interest in Lakers big man Pau Gasol in a deal involving Rajon Rondo, sources tell Eric Pincus of HoopsWorld.  There's no indication that the two sides have discussed such a deal, however.

In an interview with Mike Trudell of Lakers.com, General Manager Mitch Kupchak indicated that he would like make a move to rejuvenate the team's aging backcourt.  "Well, if there were a way for us to get a 25-year-old, All-Star, ball-handling guard we'd love to do it … but that's not likely in February. So you look at other alternatives, and see if it's better than what you have. That's all," the GM explained. 

Rondo would fit the profile of a "25-year-old, All-Star, ball-handling guard" and Pincus writes that those comments could be a tell.  Then again, one would be hard pressed to find a GM who wouldn't have some interest in the Kentucky product.

Gasol, would give the C's another option on the inside along Kevin Garnett, who is in the final year of his deal.  Boston could have considerable cap room this summer but there hasn't been any buzz about the club luring stars such as Dwight Howard or Deron Williams.

I can’t see the Celtics trading Rondo to the Lakers unless it’s for Bynum.

For some reason the Celtics want to get rid of Rondo. Trade him, 2 draft picks, and Brandon Bass for Gasol and Bynum

As a Lakers fan, I love this. Being realistic though, I can’t see this ever happening.
