Pau Gasol to come off bench, Clark to start
Mike D'Antoni said that Pau Gasol will come off the bench in Tuesday's game against the Bulls on Monday.
"It also puts Pau in his natural position. He's one of the best centers in the league," D'Antoni said. He went from laughing at the idea of bringing Gasol off the bench, to thinking about it, and now he's going to bring the former All-Star off the bench for what is expected to be on a permanent basis. It's unlikely he'll be able to maintain his average of 34 minutes per game on the season, but Gasol owners shouldn't panic and sell low on him especially since he's coming off a season-high 25 points on Sunday.
