Pau Gasol Waived By Blazers 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Nov 21, 2019 12:10 am

The Portland Trail Blazers have waived Pau Gasol.


Gasol has been unable to successfully rehab his left foot following surgery.


Gasol is remaining in Portland to rehab and could stay with the team in a coaching role.


Gasol signed with the Milwaukee Bucks after a buyout with the San Antonio Spurs last season but played only three games with Milwaukee before a season-ending foot injury.

He should come back to LA in a coaching role. Would love to have him back with the team. One of my favorite players of the last two decades.

Hard to believe it’s over until I remember geeking out about him in the 2001 draft.

Even more than that, imo. At least in 2010.

I assume to be with his brother. At this point coaching is a better fit, but he has no connection to city otherwise.
