And yes, that includes Gasol.
Read the whole thing, if anything it's a nice synopsis of what Paxson's been saying for several months, but like the article states there's now a name attached to what he has previously said his team needs.
My one problem is that Nocioni is lumped in with my defined core of Hinrich, Deng, and Gordon. But luckily those are the words of the Trib's KC Johnson, and not Pax himself. And since Paxson says the team needs a PF that can score, that tells me that Nocioni likely won't be among the untouchables.
