Pau Gasol Denies Reports on Eyeing Bulls
Bulls.com’s Sam Smith quoted “Laker insiders” who said “(Pau) Gasol would like to play for the Bulls.” That contradicts the endless statements Gasol has made that he’d like to remain a Laker. He reiterated that stance again Tuesday during a visit at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
“My position is still the same,” Gasol told The Times. “I still would love to be a part of the Lakers and continue to be here to help the team win more championships as soon as possible. It’s out of my control and it’s out of my hands, no matter what.
“I don’t know where that came from,” Gasol said. “It’s pointless to really worry about it. I’m totally cool with it, whatever they say. The stories will appear and then disappear on something that does or doesn’t happen again. It sucks to be in that position, but it is what it is.”
