ESPN report says that both Minnesota and Toronto have called the Lakers about Pau and thus far have been rebuffed.  The apparent offers have been Pekovic and Williams (and filler) from Minny and Bargnani and Calderon from Toronto.  Both of those packages are far greater than anything Boston can offer outside of Rondo (which certainly won't happen at this point), which makes Pau in Boston a pipe dream.

  Toronto's offer isn't that great and I don't know how valuable Pekovic is to a team with Dwight.

I saw from an ESPN write (maybe can't recall whom) that Nash was promised a chance to play with Pau.

So at the very least they won't be trading Pau until Nash gets a chance to make it all work. (baring Nash never getting on the court, at that point all bets are off)
