Blazers Had Protection In Pau Gasol's Contract Against Left Foot/Ankle Injury 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Nov 21, 2019 5:35 pm

The Portland Trail Blazers signed Pau Gasol to a guaranteed one-year deal, except the deal would no longer be guaranteed if he missed 15 straight games due to a problem with his left foot or ankle.


The Blazers were free to waive Gasol after Monday's game as he wasn't healthy yet.


The Blazers now have his $1.62 million not count against their cap, which also helps their luxury tax bill. Gasol’s cap hit this season will now be  $463,684.
