Per Athletic’s Buha:

Quote:
Marc Gasol on his future with the LA Lakers: "Obviously, they have a lot of decisions to make. I don’t think I’m at the top of the list of those decisions. We’ll see later on this summer how the team looks and what they want to do, what the plan is."


Still one of the wtf moments of the offseason. I liked Marc at the vet min and I still do his summer.

But we got cute and offered him a 5.5m 2 yr vet min guarantee deal instead of a 1yr vet min that would have given him 2.6m this year but wound have only been a 1.6m cap hit. Instead it was a 2.6m cap hit due to the 2yr guarantee and since we were hard capped, we needed to use a 2nd round pick to move McGee’s deal off the books.

We should have just gave Marc a wink wink saying he will definitely get a 1yr vet min this summer if he signed one last offseason too. That way we keep McGee, keep a future 2nd round pick and add Marc to the roster still. Smfh!

Same here. If he gets in even better shape, he would be fine in that Javale role. He is still a smart savvy vet and I felt he helped us more than hurt us. I think he really got a bad rap here, and most of it was his conditioning. He is really the least of our problems. He shot the ball better than some of our shooters....lol

He shot 65% from 3 in the playoffs when all our so called 3/D shooters shot in the 20s.

Yes he had quick guards blow by him but if AD is healthy he is protecting the backline.

We didn't get enough time to see Dennis/KCP/LBJ/AD/Marc as a starting group.

He can stay, he shouldn't play big minutes but on limited on play time and as a matchup tool in the playoffs he can be handy

Absolutely ...... he gives us true leadership, high basketball IQ, stretches the floor with much needed 3pt shooting, and contributes to team defence.

The coaching staff needs to better utilize him. 10 to 15 minutes per game at the most.

On an aside, it would be great if he worked hard this offseason to return in better shape.

It would also be great if the FO and Vogel utilize him and use him like they appreciate him as a player, they got him but then they got Harrell and added Drummond later in the season.. he was never a factor in the rotation because we were trying to incorporate multiple bigs.

Need to keep Gasol, give him regular minutes and consistency. He shot really well in the latter half of season and post season and just made our stagnant offense flow so well.

He's a perfect back up stretch 5, need to convince him to stay since we gotta pay him anyway

True, Rob is showing both his inexperience as a GM and his expertise as a super agent and lawyer all at the same time. He loves making deals. He loves selling people.

He got Trez, Drummond, Marc, Dennis because he could, not that he should. Oh, Rob and his "stories"!
