Gasol has not informed the Lakers of his plan. But the Lakers are mindful that Gasol has stated he wants to play for a championship caliber team and has entertained a vast amount of interest from Miami, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Chicago and New York.

But in general terms, the Lakers want to ensure they receive a quality player in return, if not more, and that their contract does not compromise their financial flexibility both in length and size of the contract.
