Granted, the Spurs manage minutes better than anybody but a guy of Pau’s caliber needs to see the court every once and a while. He would look good in the silver and black and add favorably to the Spurs’ international flavor but that dollar figure could be a little steep for his age and physical capabilities. But if I were the Spurs FO I'd get Gasol's agent's ear to see how flexible a signing figure he might be thinking of and to keep Gasol in shape. I guess resigning Bonner is out of the question? I couldn’t help myself, I just had to throw that in.
I would love to sign Gasol to a two year deal next season and extend Manu and Duncan for 1 more season. If we could keep patty mills and Diaw, I would give Gasol whatever money was left over even if it was 14 mill per season. It is not like we would need it for someone else. Our roster would be full anyway.
And it is not my money so it is really easy to say.
