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. It is not currently clear which scenarios the Lakers would entertain a sign-and-trade with Gasol, who made $19.3 million last season. 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.

The Heat could stand to add more talent at point guard. Kyle Lowry would be their dream, though Toronto must be considered the favorite to retain him. Miami could also land much-needed help on the wings by snagging Shawn Marion, Marvin Williams or Trevor Ariza. I'm also told that Pat Riley intends to make a run at Oklahoma City center Kendrick Perkins, who has one year left on his contract. ESPN.com

Even after Shumpert suffered a strained left MCL in a Knicks loss last Wednesday, Oklahoma City was willing to part with this year's first-round draft pick to land the Knicks' shooting guard, according to sources with knowledge of the trade discussions. The Knicks, however, refused to do the deal because they weren't getting a current player in return who could help them make a push for this year's Eastern Conference playoffs. At the end of the day, they deemed Shumpert more valuable than the 28th pick (or whatever low pick OKC gets) of the draft, sources said. ESPN.com
