16 points and 7 rebounds are still good numbers for an European player but is it good enough the be the star of a team? At least this is what Pau and the Grizzlies think – Pau is a star. But some things have changed in Memphis. Not only that Juan-Carlos Navarro is with Pau building up the Spanish connection, no, there is also a new GM and a new head coach.
Oh, one more thing – Pau’s numbers are down, compared to last year – he gets less minutes – scores less points and grabs less rebounds.
So it did not take too long that there was the rumor (on the Internet) that Pau Gasol will be traded – and of course there was one team that is always involved in any trading rumors this season: the Chicago Bulls.
Lets play this game and see what you would have to give up to get Pau Gasol to the Bulls.
The question is how much you really can give up for a seventh-year player who never has been a good rebounder or defender and hasn’t been on the winning side in a playoff game … How about Tyrus Thomas and Andres Nocioni?
As the AOL fanhouse reports you don’t want to give anything like Memphis probably wants for Pau Gasol:
Right, how about a pseudo-rebounder and an inconsistent Euro for an All-Star? Because, to Sam Smith, those two equal Gasol, which begs the question of why he’d want the Spaniard in the first place. Then again, it’s blogs, not Smith, that have a credibility problem, right?
