I don't see why JJJ's outlook is so much better with JV on the team instead of Gasol. Maybe JV's usage is lower, but he should still start and play 25+ min. If they kept Gasol, at 34 yrs old, he likely would've been shutdown after the ASB. JV is only 26, so the team likely will want to see what they have and continue his development through the season. What am I missing?

I agree although I think JJJ should be fine playing at PF next to a C like JV.  JV can stretch the floor to midrange, play high and low post and good enough to keep defenders from sagging off of him.  Hopefully that means spacing isn't going to be a problem and JJJ can still get down low or PnR without having defenders pack the paint or crowd him out.  Having said this Gasol was a much better passer than JV and was always looking to pass when he was playing off the elbows or near the 3pt line plus Bickerstaff isn't a good coach so there's probably enough there to dampen the JJJ hype train just a little.

What is is trade value? I'm trying to offload him due to only 2 games in the first playoff week. Maybe looking for a wing player

If you're tanking, it seems dumb to rest him.  You want to develop him, he doesn't get better by not playing against NBA players.  But out for the foreseeable future when there's three weeks before the playoffs also sounds really bad.  I'm gonna hold in the leagues where I'm set, but in the leagues where I'm competing for the playoffs...I'll hold through tomorrow?  Rabb isn't that sexy, and tomorrow's slate is full anyway.
