YouTube parody begs for a team that will trade for Pau Gasol

BallerballFilms has posted a YouTube clip pleading with teams around the NBA to trade for Lakers forward/center Pau Gasol.

Set to the Sarah McLaughlin track "Angel," the clip parodies her campaign to prevent animal cruelty.

"Please trade for Pau Gasol, he's miserable in Los Angeles and needs your help," begs the video.

Gasol is currently sidelined with a concussion suffered in the Lakers' loss to the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.

The Lakers last year tried to trade Gasol for Chris Paul. He's struggled so far this season to fit in alongside Dwight Howard, whether playing for Mike Brown or Mike D'Antoni.

It's unclear if the Lakers will actually trigger a trade before the Feb. 21 deadline.
