Pau Gasol turned down a two-year, $10M-plus per deal with the Lakers.
Gasol doesn't seem too interested in returning to the Lakers. Potential suitors are the Spurs, Bulls, and Thunder, as they give him a good shot at winning. Gasol said he wants to go to a contender, and the Lakers likely are not in that position at this point. ANALYST: Ben Diamond
Update: Nene (calf) will not play Saturday.
The Wizards are thin in the forecourt, now with Hilario out as well as Kris Humphries. He was a game-time decision earlier, but the pre-game shootaround appear to have shown his lack of capacity to play on Saturday. Jared Dudley and Drew Gooden will be asked to carry on in place of the injured Wizards. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
