But yeah, I never considered that Pau might want to leave himself.
Haha well unfortunately unless he agrees to a sign and trade not going to have much choice, Minnesota might be an option but it'd just make them similar to what they are like with Love except a bit worse, Gasol and Pekovic would have similar problems defensively (unless Love stays and you want Gasol and Love to defend together haha), being a left wing socialist let's send him to the Bucks and make the worse teams slightly better/spread around the talent
(bit of sarcasm never hurt anyone
regarding the last sentence)
I think there is a large possibility that he leaves I'm not saying he definitely will but I think there are a number of things that will pull him away given the toll that all the trade rumours and everything had on him and his playstyle; he's had a coach that really didn't suit him and has been scapegoated a lot whether it all has taken a toll or if it's off the court issuesin the past I don't know but there's just been times that I've watched him and he looked just as if he wished he was somewhere else/looked depressed at times so I think he'll take a fresh start not guaranteed but a possibility, but he does have Kobe and a strong bond in LA so who knows.
