Wesley Matthews had high praise for his teammate in the Los Angeles Lakers Marc Gasol about how he has handled the signing of Andre Drummond.

Gasol has seen his minutes drop, but has remained engaged and deserves credit for that, says Matthews.

“Wes Matthews says Marc Gasol deserves a ton of credit for the way he has stayed engaged and ready after Andre Drummond replaced him in the starting lineup,” Lakers Nation reports.

For his part, Gasol has no plans to leave the Lakers and hasn’t got involved in any buyout talks with the defending champions.
