Pau Gasol has repeatedly sad he is not a quitter and he will make do with the situation he is in, coming off the bench, not seeing eye-t0-eye with Mike D’Antoni, and not meshing well with Dwight Howard on the court. However, he doesn’t remain as optimistic when looking ahead to next season, admitting he may ask for a trade.
According to the Los Angeles Times:
“If this coach stays and Dwight Howard remains with the Lakers,” I asked, “what about you?”
“It would be hard for me to deal with another season knowing the facts you just mentioned,” said Gasol, 32 and with one year remaining on his contract.
“So do you ask for a fresh start elsewhere?”
“It’s a possibility,” he said, “yes.”
