On the Lakers, Gasol will be looking to win his second National Basketball Association championship.

After trading away Danny Green in a deal for Dennis Schroder, the Lakers wasted no time replenishing they wing depth by agreeing to a one-year deal with Wesley Matthews.

Gasol will man the five for the Lakers in light of Dwight Howard's departure for the Philadelphia 76ers.

It will be interesting to see how much the Lakers are willing to pay Marc Gasol.

The Cavs will get a second-round pick in 2026 from the Lakers, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the teams have not announced the swap.

The 23-year-old was the No. 1 pick of the 2020 NFL Draft shortly after winning a national championship with LSU. For the season, Burrow completed 242 of 370 passes , throwing for 2,485 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The Lakers outdueled Dallas and, most threateningly, Toronto for Gasol's services, bringing him to Los Angeles less than 24 hours after his former teammate Serge Ibaka agreed to a deal with the Clippers. With McGee no longer in the mix, Gasol could potentially slot in as the Lakers' starting center.

The 6-foot-11 Spaniard was an integral piece that helped put the Raptors get over the hump and win their first-ever National Basketball Association championship in 2019. He isn't what he used to be defensively, but he can still bang down low while also spacing the floor on the offensive end.

Gasol was drafted by the Lakers in 2007, but had his rights traded to Memphis for his brother, Pau, before he ever played an National Basketball Association game.
