Marc Gasol hilariously recalls his time with Lakers
It’s easy to forget now, but Marc Gasol was very briefly a member of the Los Angeles Lakers at the start of his NBA career. They selected him in the second round of the 2007 NBA Draft, and ultimately traded his draft rights to the Memphis Grizzlies in 2008 in a trade that brought his brother Pau to Los Angeles.
What does Gasol remember about that time? Not a lot, except for some oversized sweaters.
Marc Gasol on being a Laker, briefly: "Yeah for a few, couple of months I was, I guess. They sent me oversized sweaters and stuff. You could say I was a Laker (laughs). I was not on the payroll though." Said he visited Pau at Finals to soak it all in once back in the day.

Gasol has come a long way since then. Ultimately, it’s a case where there are probably no regrets for either side, as Pau forged an impressive legacy with the Lakers while Marc carved out an excellent career in Memphis and now Toronto. Plus, he got an amusing memory out of that time.
