Pau Gasol Believes He Could Be Traded
Pau Gasol’s duties for the Los Angeles Lakers this season officially ended Wednesday afternoon after he met with general manager Mitch Kupchak and coach Mike Brown. Yet Gasol didn’t seem to be in any rush to leave the Lakers’ practice facility, knowing this could be his last visit there.
“It’s still very much possible that this is one of my last days,” Gasol said while standing outside the practice facility. “Every day could be my last day. It’s not sentimental, but it does cross your mind that there could be a change.”
Gasol still hopes to stay with the Lakers next season. He has two years and $38.2 million left on his contract but didn’t discuss his future much with Kupchak in their meeting.
“I wish I could have clarification right now,” Gasol said. “They can’t give it to me.”
