Pau Gasol Prioritized Chance To Win Title In Picking Bulls

Pau Gasol nearly became a member of the Chicago Bulls in the 2001 NBA Drat and also in 2007 when the Memphis Grizzlies were shopping him in trade talks.

At the age of 34, Gasol finally joined the Bulls on a three-year, $22 million deal. Gasol had more lucrative financial offers from other clubs.

"I prioritized being on a championship-caliber team," Gasol said. "If I didn't believe we had that potential, I wouldn't have come here. I think we have all the pieces. Now it's a matter of getting to work. It's about actions and not talking."
