Pau Gasol waived by Blazers, in talks about coaching role

Pau Gasol

Pau Gasol’s career is in limbo as he continues to try to rehab a foot injury.

Gasol was waived by the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday in order to focus on rehab. Gasol said in an Instagram video that he and the team knew that recovery from his foot surgery might be lengthy process, and they had agreed that Gasol should be waived to allow Portland to use a roster spot on an active player.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN added that Gasol and the Blazers are in talks about a coaching role.

It seems as if Gasol still has his sights set on playing again, but wants to help the Blazers in the interim. He underwent foot surgery in May, and as he notes in his Instagram video, recovery could take as much of a year. If coaching is something he’s interested in, this is a good opportunity to test it out while he still tries to get ready to play.
