NBA trade rumors: Suns eye Pau Gasol, Evan Turner for Bobcats

With the trade deadline just around the corner, NBA teams are working twice as hard to finalize their roster.

Perhaps one of the loudest rumors this year is Pau Gasol who is reportedly moving to Phoenix Suns. Sources told ESPN that the Suns emerged as a strong trade suitor for the Los Angeles Lakers center.

The Lakers could be willing to let go of the four-time All-Star. After all, Gasol already expressed his disappointment with coach Mike D'Antoni.

The Lakers could also take advantage of Phoenix's draft picks. One option for the Suns, ESPN said, is to use injured center Emeka Okafor's $14.5 million expiring contract to get close to Gasol's $19.3 million.

Meanwhile, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer claims that the Philadelphia 76ers is looking forward to trade Evan Turner.

An NBA source reportedly told Bonnell that the Charlotte Bobcats is very interested in the young forward. Turner will become a restricted free agent this summer. That means that the team with his rights would have to make a qualifying offer of about $8.7 million to restrict him.
