"Toronto rookie Jorge Garbajosa, who is close with Gasol, told Diario Madrid: "[Gasol] worries me. He's my friend and he's having a very bad time in Memphis. If he has to remain in Memphis for more months, it will be real hard given the present situation. I've seen him very upset. I'm very worried for him."
""It's uncomfortable and it's becoming very disturbing for me, because stability is what any player wants anytime," Gasol told Delmas. "I imagine that the general managers and chief executives [from Memphis and Chicago] still are talking. But a lot of things happened in the last few weeks. Nothing is done, all are speculations, and I don't want to speculate anymore." and the weirdest part of all . . . "The Grizzlies are eyeing a draft and more young players. It's doubtful they'd risk a shot at Carter, who can become a free agent. Plus, one international journalist said Andres Nocioni has been saying he expects to be traded."
