Griz GM on Trading Gasol: ‘Set us up for the future’

“I think the deal that set us up for the future was the Pau Gasol trade,” said (GM Chris) Wallace, who described the atmosphere surrounding the team at that time as “non-electric.”

“I felt we set ourselves up for the future, and if the Lakers win a championship, so be it,” Wallace said. “Both teams are supposed to, in theory, profit in a trade. That’s not my problem what the Lakers got out of it or what issues it caused competitors of the Lakers. I’m working for the Grizzlies and trying to set our franchise up for the future, and I think as time has proven, nobody had a deal that put us in a position to chart a new course for the future like that deal did, and it worked out.”

The Spurs listed forward Kawhi Leonard as probable for Tuesday’s road matchup at Dallas, which means it’s likely that the two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year will make his season debut against the Mavericks.

The club originally targeted Saturday’s game at Phoenix as a potential debut for Leonard, but sources on Friday said the forward wanted “a couple more days” to recover from the right quadriceps tendinopathy that has kept him out of all 27 of the Spurs’ games thus far this season.
