Marc Gasol Agrees To Deal With Spanish Club

Free agent center Marc Gasol has agreed to a contract with Spanish club Girona Basket, as relayed by Basket News.Marc Gasol

Gasol, 36, is a part-owner of the team and could make his playing debut for the season on Dec. 3. 

He said at the beginning of the month he was still weighing his options, and had been linked to Barcelona.

“For now, I’m working out, and then we’ll see what I’m going to do. I’m at a point where I want to see for how long I will be able to keep playing and what I’ll feel like doing when I’m in the best possible condition,” he said in Ricardo Moya’s program El sentido de la birra, via Basket News.

Gasol was traded from the Lakers to the Grizzlies at the end of last season, before agreeing to a contract buyout with Memphis. He generated little interest from NBA teams since.

He began his career with Barcelona in 2003, then joined the Grizzlies in 2008. He has won an NBA championship and two Olympic silver medals, has made three All-Star teams and earned an NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award, as well as first-team All-NBA honors.

But Gasol became expendable in LA after the team signed centers DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard. He was first linked to Girona by Alex Molina of Eurohoops back on Nov. 9.

Gasol averaged he averaged 5.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 52 games with the Lakers in 2020-21.
