2015-16 Statistics:

16.5 PPG, 11.0 RPG, 4.1 APG, 2.0 BPG, 46.9 FG%, 34.8 3PT%, 79.2 FT%

Pau Gasol continued to prove that he is one of the NBA’s premier big men with another outstanding season amidst all of the turmoil in Chicago. His 46 double-doubles were seventh most in the NBA and he was one of only 12 players to record multiple triple-doubles.

Gasol will be 36 by the time next season rolls around so any contract for him likely will be pretty short. That being said, he hasn’t slowed down yet and continues to be extremely productive on the floor as one of the most intelligent, skilled, and versatile big men in the world.
