Lakers Trade JaVale McGee, Reach Agreement With Marc Gasol

Marc Gasol Lakers

He won his first with the Raptors two seasons ago after Toronto pried him away from the Grizzlies in a midseason trade.

"Marc Gasol heads to Los Angeles on an agreement with the Lakers, where his preference has been and where his brother Pau is an icon", Shams Charania of The Athletic reported on Twitter, Sunday.

The Los Angeles Lakers are trading JaVale McGee and a future second-round pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The 7-footer averaged 6.6 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.5 blocks for the National Basketball Association champions this past season.

The Cavs were looking for a center after free agent Tristan Thompson reportedly agreed to a deal with the Boston Celtics and McGee will now apparently fill that role.

Gasol struggled to stay on the court in the playoffs, however, which could be a sign that Father Time is catching up to the 12-year veteran.
