Celtics forward Jaylen Brown elected as a NBPA Vice President originally appeared on nbcsportsboston.com Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown told the Undefeated's Marc Spears in 2017 that he's "always had his eyes set" on one day being the president of the National Basketball Players Association, and he took a huge step toward that goal Monday. The NBPA announced Monday that Brown was elected as a vice president. Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon and Charlotte Hornets center Bismack Biyombo also were elected as NBPA vice presidents, joining veterans Pau Gasol, C.J. McCollum and Garrett Temple as VPs.
Pau Gasol denied he asked the San Antonio Spurs to trade him before the NBA deadline. Reports surfaced earlier this month that said Spanish veteran and two-time champion Gasol requested to be moved on by the Spurs. Gasol - whose younger brother Marc was traded to the Toronto Raptors from the Memphis Grizzlies - dismissed those reports.
I didn't request to be traded. I don't want to comment on it because it is what it is. I think people understand or can figure out my situation on the team is not what was expected from me, and my only wish and desire is to be able to contribute to the team, and be able to be on the floor and do what I'm supposed to do, and do what I signed here to do, and kind of live up to what I'm paid for.
