Video: Pau Gasol Happy to Stay With Lakers

The NBA trade deadline has passed and the Los Angeles Lakers made a couple trades which shocked its fan base. Derek Fisher was traded to the Houston Rockets following five titles with the team and before that, the Lakers acquired Ramon Sessions from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

However, despite the early trade rumors, the Lakers decided to keep Pau Gasol. Gasol was initially traded to the Rockets as part of the Chris Paul deal, but that trade was vetoed and he remained with the Lakers.

Ever since then, Gasol’s future with the team was in limbo and he did not know when he would wear his Lakers jersey for the final time. Luckily for the Spaniard, the Lakers did not trade him before the deadline and chose to go into the post-season with him and Kobe Bryant.

Shortly after the 12 p.m. deadline passed, Gasol released a video and wanted to express his relief of not being traded. Let’s hope Gasol continues to get better and gives the front-office a reason to make him a long-term option.
