What Goes Around Comes Around: How the Pau Gasol trade worked out for both teams

The fundamentals of a trade state that you get something in return for what you give.

For years the media and fans alike have endlessly criticized Chris Wallace – the General Manager of the Memphis Grizzlies – for essentially giving away Pau Gasol to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Up until two and a half weeks ago, no one understood Wallace’s method behind his madness. The Grizzlies then shocked the world by upsetting the Spurs in six games, before pushing the Thunder to a deciding game seven, Wallace’s trade finally makes sense, well sort of.

“We got hammered on it,” Wallace said. “Our end of the deal was going to get rolled out over time. The Lakers’ end got rolled out immediately.”
