03:52 PM ET 02.04 | The Phoenix Suns have been talking with the Los Angeles Lakers over the past few days about the possibility of trading Emeka Okafor and draft picks in exchange for Pau Gasol. While the talks have indeed taken place, there seem to be more and more hangups as the talks are further revealed. On Monday it was reported that the Lakers want a high draft pick for Gasol and on Tuesday the Suns have noted that they want to hold on off on a Gasol trade at the moment to see how eel he bounces back from his recent groin injury.

"the Lakers want a high draft pick for Gasol"

Good luck with that. The days of giving the Lakers softballs are over.

Gasol is a smart player but he's deteriorated with age. He's not the one to push the Suns over the top. He's just too old and never been a defensive force. Playing for D'Antoni doesn't help either.

It's fools gold Phoenix. Don't buy the hype. Keep LA losing. That's what they deserve for not amnestying Kobe...

Cold feet already?
They might have other takers for Okafor's contract, better explore those opportunities.
