    He just turned 34, we got him for another year after this one ($25 million player option). Let's hope playing on a bad team was as much of a factor in his perceived decline as his age/wear

    We dont have that go to 2nd scorer everybody wants, but now with gasol, siakam, Ibaka and Lowry we have 4 "third scorer types" that on any given night can go off for well over 20 pts and be that 2nd guy.

    I hope for our sake he ages like Pau Gasol did between the ages of 34 to 37. Otherwise it's gonna be painful watching him play these last few months.

    OK, I will find a way to talk myself into this deal. Mostly based on hoping Gasol has more in the tank than he's shown on crappy Memphis.

    Frontcourt seems a little crowded - after thinking about it, I guess Ibaka comes off the bench? And gets some mid-Q run as PF beside Gasol?

    i don't feel like i'm one of those posters that overvalues JV or anything but i don't think I like this move at this stage of his career.

    AND we gave up wright and a 2nd round pick?

    yeah definitely definitely don't like it. masai can't win 'em all i guess

    not a fan of giving up delon but oh well.

    I kinda feel like MU has been down this road with memphis a few times, they keep wanting more expecting a bigger market and we keep coming back saying here's jv+

    So MU was looking at the rest of the easts moves, the situ and then goes f it and finally marcs up north.

    if that's what happened it sounds like a panic move, just trying to shake things up for the hell of it. they shook it up by getting rid of one the most reliable guys on the team for a 35 year old C on the decline

    Yeah I think Ibaka and Gasol both get 25-30 and split a few minutes...push OG down to his natural 3 a bit more especially easier with no Cj or delon

    Memphis was one of the few times out West that I paid attention to because of the Vancouver connection.

    ... I'm only hoping he's been doggin' it there for a few seasons because ... I don't get this move. Also hope the losing feeling thing in shooting hand was just part of that doggin' it thing.

    I'll support Marc Gasol as I will support anyone as long as he's a Raptor, but I have to say, this feels like a bad deal. We acquired a declining, injury prone and weak rebounder for his position on a year that two of our main problems are precisely injuries and rebounding. Gave away youth, PG depth and pick that could be used on a more productive deal.

    I will never be stuck on a narrative a hate him while his here, I really wish he can take us to the finals, he was a great player on his prime, just having a hard convincing myself this was a good move for the Raptors, short or long term. Hopefully this will energize him and we'll see the old Gasol more and more

    Does his contract go for one more year? Seems like a bit of a salary dump - a consolidating move with contracts expiring "at the right time".

    Lot of roster room to be filled in the weeks ahead.

    I like JV but Gasol is a premier team defender and he's going to have a much easier time offensively now that he's surrounded by others who can carry the heavy load. He's also historically been a tremendous playoff performer. This is a terrific move. Losing JV hurts a little cause he grew up here but moving Wright and Miles hurts Raps not at all. Now we wait to see if Raps can land Mathews to round out that second unit.
