Has Pau Gasol already played his last game for the Los Angeles Lakers? Not if the Lakers’ brass has its way.

Although the Lakers’ ideal free agency scenario involves convincing both LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony to come play for them this summer, according to a source with knowledge of the team’s thinking, they are not ruling out the return of the four-time All-Star and two-time NBA champion Gasol by any means.

In fact, should it appear that James and Anthony are not pursuing a mutual destination as a package deal — especially with Dwyane Wade, Udonis Haslem and Chris Bosh opting out of their deals with the MIami Heat — the Lakers believe that having Gasol back on the team could be vital in their solo pursuit of Anthony.
