Marc Gasol continues to decide his future. After leaving the Lakers for the Grizzlies and being cut by the Memphis franchise, it was assumed that the pvot would return to Spain, where he is currently, to enroll in the Basketball Girona, of the LEB Oro, team of which is owner. However, a door has been opened for him in the NBA to continue his career there.
The Warriors, who have long shown interest in him, continue to insist that he sign with them, extend his 13-season NBA career and strengthen his chances of fighting for the ring. Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and returned Klay Thompson, who has not played for two years with two serious injuries, are all grounds for believing that Golden State could go far.
The Californian franchise still has a fifteenth vacancy on its roster and has been thinking about Marc for a long time. They will fit in with a veteran pvot who will tutor the promising James Wiseman, who will provide experience, who does not need too much ball, who can provide fluidity thanks to his reading the game and defending. Your role may be similar to the one David West or Andrew Bogut once played on the team.
According to Anthony Slater, who covers the Warriors’ reporting for ‘The Athletic,’ the three-time All-Star power-up was already very close to signing for the Warriors last season, but Klay Thompson’s Achilles tendon fracture caused a change. of plans and the operation was not closed. Marc ended up signing for the Lakers and his course, the worst of his career in the NBA, was really convulsive, with a positive for COVID and the arrival of Andre Drummond, which made him lose a role that was never excessive. The Los Angeles media now assure that the Spaniard never considered returning to the yellow franchise this summer given the “toxic” campaign he experienced.
Since he was a free agent, Marc has not spoken out about his future. The most he has done has been to post an image on Twitter of Captain Haddock, a character from the Tintin comics, in a brooding attitude. The pvot must decide between playing at home and at his club to say goodbye to basketball or enjoy one last dance in the NBA as part of a team with aspirations.
