SAN ANTONIO -- According to a report from ESPN Deportes, San Antonio Spurs' Pau Gasol requested the team trade him before the 2019 NBA Trade Deadline.
However, no deal came to fruition, and Gasol is likely to remain with the Spurs until the end of the season according to the report.
The closing of the trade deadline in the NBA left Pau Gasol with the San Antonio Spurs against the will of the player.
The Spanish power forward had asked for a change of air from those in charge of the Texas franchise, but the negotiations did not reach any avenue and Pau will end the season where it started, with the Spurs jersey.
Gasol has seen very limited time on the court this season. In 26 games, he is averaging a career-low 12.5 minutes and posting 4.4 points per game.
He's missed 26 games due to left foot soreness this season and posted a season-high 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting at New Orleans on Jan. 26.
Gasol's current contract is heavy. He is due $16,800,000 this season and $16,000,000 next season.
