“I didn’t request to be traded,” Gasol told reporters on Tuesday. “It’s not that I want to comment so much on it because it is what it is. I think people understand or can figure out that my situation is not what was expected for me. My only wish and desire is to be able to contribute to the team and be able to be on the floor and do what I am supposed to do and do what I signed here to do, and kind of live up to what I am paid for.”
Gasol missed 26 games due to a stress fracture in his right foot still hasn’t gained much playing time after his return, yet the Spanish forward seems to have cleared up the air about his goals with the team and his future with it.
