Pau Staying Put?
Posted by r1zzo23 on June 26, 2007
From ESPN Rumors:
Jun 26 – You have to take Chris Wallace and head coach Marc Iavaroni at their word. They both agree that the team should continue to build around Pau Gasol. Wallace called Gasol a top 20-30 NBA player, one that is “hard to obtain.”
So far, it looks like the Griz are committed to keeping Gasol. They have not talked to Atlanta about Gasol in any trade scenarios, and that discounts any notion that the Spaniard would be moved for the third pick.
Memphis and Atlanta have yet to discuss swapping picks even though the Griz fear that Al Horford will go at No. 3. — Memphis Commercial-Appeal
Looks like Chris Wallace is keeping Pau Gasol away from us, so maybe it’s Rashard Lewis or bust for this team.
