One possible place that Pau Gasol could land is with the Minnesota Timberwolves via four team trade.

The Los Angeles Lakers would send Pau to Minnesota, and they would get Derrick Williams, J.J. Barea, Jonas Jerebko and former Laker Trevor Ariza from the Washington Wizards.

The Twolves would acquire Kim English from the Detroit Pistons in addition to Gasol.

The Wizards would sign Charlie Villanueva, Nikola Pekovic and Chris Duhon.

The Pistons would get Emeka Okafor.

The big thing to keep in mind with this scenario is that the Lakers are already carrying 14 men on their roster. It is curious that they sent Sacre back down to the D-League on the same day this report came out. They would need to clear out three more spots.

There's no indication that this would happen immediately, if at all, however, it's also interesting that the Timberwolves are in Los Angeles play the Clippers today too.
