Pau Gasol is on the cusp of making a decision, and reports indicated that he was set to decide between the Bulls, Spurs, and Thunder. The Lakers are offering him a deal, but it looks like he is moving on from LA.
Gasol had been linked to the Hawks early in free agency, but it had been quiet as the days went on.
Well, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Hawks have made a late push to sign the veteran:
Atlanta making aggressive, late pitch for Pau Gasol, league sources tell Yahoo. $11M-plus a year, sources say. Gasol likely passes on offer.

That last piece is key. The Hawks seemingly are offering the most money to Gasol, but according to Wojnarowski, he will likely pass.
The report doesn’t state that he will pass, and money speaks loudly in free agency, so it shouldn’t be ruled out just yet. A decision from Pau Gasol will be coming soon, and we now know that the Hawks are all in on the big man.
