TheA NBA trade deadlineA passed at 2:00 PM CT back on Thursday, Feb. 7. It was a€œleakeda€ a day prior that theA SpursA had beenA trying to tradeA 38-year-old centerA Pau GasolA and obviously had no luck since he is still with the team. However, it is now being reported throughA ESPN DeportesA that Gasol actuallyA asked the Spurs to trade himA prior to the deadline.

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.

This would explain the excess amount of playing time he got in recent weeks: the Spurs were trying to showcase him for possible suitors. Gasol admitsA his reduced role is not idealA as he has been clearly passed byA Jakob PoeltlA in the rotation. Since the deadline passed, Poeltl has returned to his spot ahead of Gasol in the rotation.
