NBA Draft Prospect Poeltl: I Can Play Like Pau Gasol

on

With the Lakers hoping to accelerate their rebuilding process, they spoke with one college prospect who believes he can emulate a certain player that once delivered them NBA championships.

“I can be a lot like Pau Gasol,” said University of Utah sophomore center Jakob Poeltl, who interviewed with the Lakers on Friday here at the NBA pre-draft combine. “He’s a guy who has good touch around the basket and is a very good passer. He can dribble the ball. He’s even stepping out and shooting 3’s. I hope I can get there too. He’s a winner and won championships. I can do that, too.”
