New, comments

Mike Richman of NBC Sports Northwest says the Spanish big man has another procedure scheduled for his injured foot.

Pau Gasol never suited up for the Portland Trail Blazers, and the idea that he would join the coaching staff after being waived earlier this season is apparently not going to come to pass, either, reports Mike Richman of NBC Sports Northwest. Richman states that while Gasol is visiting Portland, his foot needs more work, and Gasol will return to Spain, where purportedly his goal is to rehab before the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

While it would have been nice to see the former champion coaching the Blazer big men, Rip City wishes Gasol well in his future endeavors.
