Lol yeah a disgruntled Gasol is just what we need right now. Going from the most succesful team in the NBA the last 5 years to one of the worst. We'd be lucky if he showed up at all. This trade only works if we could actually keep his Spanish buddy in T.O. Otherwise don't bother.
Stay away from those darn Lakers, they shouldn't always get what they want. And they have nothing of value that would help us, at least not immediately.
I just don't see Gasol in a mentor kind of role.
