Qualifying medalist Jon
Holzgang backed up his No.

Veteran center Pau Gasol,
39, has agreed to a one-year
deal with the Portland Trail
“Pau is a future Hall of
Famer that brings invalu-
able championship experi-
ence and an elite skill set and
basketball IQ to our roster,”
said Neil Olshey, president
of basketball operations.
Despite his age, Gasol
is an accomplished veteran
with a track record of suc-
cess in the NBA. He won
alongside Kobe Bryant with
the Los Angeles Lakers in
2009 and 2010.
As a six-time NBA All-
Star and a four-time All-
NBA selection, Gasol will
bring a veteran presence to
the locker room and could
see minutes at the center
position alongside the Trail
Blazers’ newest addition,
Hassan Whiteside, and blos-
soming young talent Zach
Collins. He also provides an
able body in the frontcourt
as they await the return of
injured starting center Jusuf
Gasol last played for
the San Antonio Spurs and
Milwaukee Bucks during
the 2018-19 season, but
appeared in just 30 games.
He started the season and
played in nine games for the
Spurs until a stress fracture
in his right foot forced him
to miss the next 26 games.
He was eventually released
by the Spurs in a buyout
agreement, and two days
later signed with the Bucks.
