The Oklahoma City Thunder, among the teams pursuing power forward Pau Gasol, met with the free agent on Monday, ESPNLosAngeles.com reported Tuesday.

Thunder coach Scott Brooks traveled to southern California to talk with Gasol, but Oklahoma City is considered a long shot to land the 7-footer, according to the report.

Last week, Thunder general manager Sam Presti contacted Gasol by phone to gauge his interest and Oklahoma City standouts Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook met with the 34-year-old on Wednesday.

The Thunder are only able to offer about $5 million to Gasol because of luxury-tax restrictions but hoped the appeal of playing for a championship contender would attract him to Oklahoma City. Gasol has won two NBA championships with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Gasol previously met with Miami Heat president Pat Riley and coach Eric Spoelstra, who also tried to convince the free agent to join the Heat. Gasol also spoke with the Chicago Bulls last Thursday in Los Angeles. Bulls center Joakim Noah was reportedly part of the team's representation.

Gasol averaged 17.4 points and 9.7 rebounds per game last season, despite a career-low 31.4 minutes per game.
