Knicks plan to land Gasol brothers?

Phil Jackson wants to re-sign Carmelo Anthony and then follow that up by getting Pau Gasol to commit to the New York Knicks. Jackson has competition for both as Anthony could sign with the Chicago Bulls or Los Angeles Lakers, while the Lakers, Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder are options for Gasol.
Marc Berman writes: "The Post reported one reason Anthony is close to re-signing is having a shot at the 34-year-old Gasol, who then could recruit his brother, Marc Gasol. The Memphis center is a free agent in 2015 when the Knicks should have plenty of cap space."
Marc Gasol has spent a lot of years in Memphis, but he might be willing to leave in 2015 with a chance to play with his brother whether it's in New York with the Knicks, or in LA with the Lakers. Of course the Gasol brothers won't have a chance to play together next year if Pau signs with Oklahoma City or Chicago. Pau could always sign with the Memphis Grizzlies, but that is an unlikely scenario.
