Pau Gasol is expected to join the coaching staff of the Portland Trail Blazers upon his return from Spain, per Casey Holdahl.

According to Holdahl, the head coach of Portland, Terry Stotts, confirmed the news while speaking to reporters prior to the game against the LA Clippers.

Gasol, who is still recovering from a left foot injury after having surgery last May, was waived by the Blazers last week.
