Gasol would fit better into Casey's system and the same can be said for Bargani with respect to Dantoni's. An expiring is not worth it, unless it's done in conjunction with a lottery pick. Additionally, our draft pick doesn't have good protection this year.
I'm not arguing Gasol would not be a good fit but it would be foolish to get him because by the time we get good he'd be retiring or crappy. I'd be willing to trade him for picks, but not another aged star.
