Marc Gasol Reportedly Had 1 Big Problem With Lakers


The Los Angeles Lakers parted ways with veteran big man Marc Gasol last week, sending him back to his old team, the Memphis Grizzlies.

Memphis reportedly plans on waiving the veteran big man, who could look to sign with another contender before the 2021-22 season.

Following the trade, we’ve learned more about Gasol’s time with the Lakers.

According to a report, Gasol never got over one issue he had with the Western Conference franchise. It’s tough to blame him for feeling that way, too.

Bill Oram of The Athletic had the details.

“This can only be looked at as a consequence of the Andre Drummond signing. Promising him Gasol’s starting job and essentially demoting Gasol to third string created a rift that could not be resolved, despite Marc saying all the right things publicly in the immediate aftermath…” he tweeted.



Again, it’s tough to blame Gasol for feeling that way. He handled everything with class, but bringing Drummond in was a bad move.
