Wolves boss: Deal for Ga­sol not im­mi­nent

Austin American-Statesman - - C SPORTS - Pau Ga­sol is hav­ing some trou­ble with the Lak­ers’ of­fense.

MIN­NEAPO­LIS — The Min­nesota Tim­ber­wolves have long been in­ter­ested in Pau Ga­sol. Now that he is hav­ing trou­ble fit­ting in with new Lak­ers coach Mike D’An­toni’s of­fense, the time would seem nat­u­ral for the teams to re­new trade talks. But that’s not the case.

“There’s ab­so­lutely noth­ing im­mi­nent that we’re work­ing on,” Tim­ber­wolves Pres­i­dent David Kahn said Fri­day.

Kahn called an im­promptu news con­fer­ence af­ter a shootaround lead­ing to Min- ne­sota’s game against the Cleve­land Cava­liers. He ad­dressed a report that said the Wolves have built a package around Der­rick Wil­liams and Nikola Pekovic to of­fer the Lak­ers for Ga­sol.

The As­so­ci­ated Press re­ported in June that Wolves did dan­gle Wil­liams in an ef­fort to land Ga­sol, but Kahn said Fri­day that is the last time the teams talked about it.
