Pau Gasol is planning on returning to the court next Wednesday. Whether that will be with the Los Angeles Lakers or with another team remains to be seen.

But if he had a choice, Gasol would rather be in a Lakers uniform come Feb 19 — or exactly one day before the NBA trade deadline.

Still, Gasol isn’t exactly naive to this whole trade deadline thing. This isn’t his first rodeo. He knows that while it’s quiet right now, at any moment things could heat up and he could be on a different team in an instant.

The Phoenix Suns have reportedly been the most interested in the seven-footers services, however, they have been a little turned off by his most recent injury that has forced Gasol to miss the Lakers last six games.

It’s expected for the Suns to makes some kind of move at the deadline, for a “featured big man”. Even with the injury worries, Gasol may be the best option out there — and the Lakers are ready to deal.
