As Jeff said, in general, there have been rumours about moving Gasol for over a year due to various reasons, like his inclusion in the failed Chris Paul deal. The most recent reason being the fit with Dantoni and his struggling play.

The Toronto connection is just one of those things that makes sense based on the limitations of Gasol's salary for finding trade partners, the Lakers hole at PG, and Toronto's frustration with Bargnani. A deal involving Cadly, Bargs, and Gasol fits teem needs and salary restrictions. All kinds of message board joe schmos recognized this within minutes of people calling for Bargnani's head. Then Grange picked up on it and put it in his article. And now it's snowballing. Who knows if the GMs actuallly like it at all or will actually consider doing it?
Yeah meant Toronto. Personally not a fan of it..
