Jim Buss said last week the Lakers wouldn’t make a major trade, but have their plans changed?

There were plenty of doubters when Lakers executive Jim Buss said last week the team probably wouldn’t make a major move during the offseason and that Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol would most likely start the 2012-13 season together.

Then came word Wednesday via an ESPN.com report that the Lakers are shopping Gasol around to gauge interest in the 7-footer around the league. The Atlanta Hawks were said to be interested in giving up Josh Smith and a first-round draft pick for Gasol.

It could make for an interesting draft day on Thursday.
