Found April 29, 2013 on RealGM:
Pau Gasol has one season remaining on his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers and hopes to return even though he could be dealt in the offseason. "I would like to be a part of another championship team here, but it is not totally up to me," Gasol said. "We could definitely get it done [if the roster stayed intact], but I would be pretty surprised if there was no changes whatsoever. I would be surprised if that happens." Gasol said he had "certain desires that [Phil Jackson] would be chosen" to replace Mike Brown instead of Mike D'Antoni. Gasol and Jackson remain in frequent contact.
