Sam Presti's "Thunder model," the failed run at Pau Gasol, and a critical point in the future

It was a typical Thunder offseason, as they drafted two rookies and avoided big moves in free agency. Except this time they tried to make one out of Pau Gasol. We are all familiar with what "the Oklahoma City Thunder model" entails now. They play the decision-making game carefully and pin financial control atop their list of priorities. That has translated into a roster built primarily through the draft, where the most cost-effective players tend to come from, and through which the Thunder can cultivate their own players instead of bidding with other teams to sign free agents. Look at the...

Chance at a title pulled at Pau Gasol

Pau Gasol said Friday he turned down other more-lucrative offers when he signed with the Bulls. The free-agent forward was willing to leave money on the table for the ­opportunity to compete for another championship. “Money wasn’t obviously the priority here,” Gasol said at his introductory news conference. “So I turned down bigger offers and I prioritized being [with] a championship-caliber team and being in a position where I can really, hopefully, push...

Free agents that could help the Spurs

While most of the choice free agents have opted to sign elsewhere, San Antonio's front office still has some options to consider should they feel the need to tweak the roster. After LeBron decided to return to Cleveland, the off-season picked up the pace. There have been a bunch of signings since last Friday afternoon, and at this point there are not a lot of notable free agents available outside of Kevin Love. The Spurs, meanwhile, tried to lure Pau Gasol but failed and signed Matt Bonner in what might end up being their last move of the summer. Let's take a look at where San Antonio...

Why Pau Gasol is a perfect fit for Bulls

RICK TELANDER: The Bulls get 34-year-old 7-footer Pau Gasol. His contract is said to be starting at somewhere around $6.5 million, but forget about money and think about basketball.

Saying goodbye to Pau Gasol

In the end, the way Pau Gasol left Los Angeles was almost as nondescript as the way he came in. Six and a half years ago the Lakers -- off to a hot start to the 2007-08 season, but treading water after Andrew Bynum went down with a season-ending knee injury -- swooped in like a burglar in the night and found themselves a shiny new pivot man from Memphis. And then, on Saturday afternoon smack dab in the middle of the World Cup consolation game, Gasol announced that the Chicago Bulls had landed his services and thus won the biggest consolation prize in this summer’s NBA free agency.
