Default Re: Rival Execs Think Gasol to Toronto?

No big man comes into the league 1st season - that would'nt benefit from playing time and mentoring from a guy like Pgas. The man is a professional.

Thats not a knock on Jonus at all...

I think playing with Gasol would do nothing more than accelerate his growth and protect him from being the sole target of hard knocks and fouls for the next two seasons as other teams will play hack a jonus if he continues to improve.

However that is the least important aspect of doing the deal straight up. Simply a side bennefit.

The main reasons stated is the cap freedom in 2 years - the timing of unrestricted FA - the culture change....

(still not positive I have it exact - Lowry has 2 years? Amir has 2 years? Landry has 3 ? )

I frankly agree with this article no reservation. Bad timing and all.. time to move on...
