Report: Marc Gasol expects to be traded to Hornets
The Charlotte Hornets still haven’t completed a trade for Marc Gasol, but it sounds like the player still expects them to.
According to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer, Gasol still anticipates landing with the Hornets, though the situation became less clear after a trade failed to materialize on Tuesday night after appearing close.
A source close to Marc Gasol says he anticipates ending up with the Hornets. The player obviously doesn't make that final call, but it's indicative, at least, that this is still running in the direction of a deal before Thursday's 3 p.m. deadline.

Talks centered around Gasol were serious enough that the center was held out of the Memphis Grizzlies’ Tuesday night contest. The fact that it didn’t happen appeared to be because of some work to do on matching salaries, but things are clearly still on the table.
