Lyou Lakers they continue with their private reconstruction. After changing practically the entire staff, they continue to search the market for the pieces that make up a team guaranteed to fight for the ring. The philosophy this year has been to bring in veteran players despite the initial desire to rejuvenate the team, and now the claims are pointing to a tall man.
DeAndre Jordan is pointed as a possibility if he fixes his situation in the Nets, as he did Rondo region with the Grizzlies, via buyout. But in the last few hours it has come into the equation with force Marc Gasol.
Marc joined the Lakers squad last year after his triumphant stint at Los Raptors, where he won the ring in 2019. But, after a season of many shadows and few lights, much more after the arrival of Andre Drummond, its continuity in LA was more than doubtful, almost impossible.
The news that came from the Lakers suggested that they no longer had Marc and that the intention of the player was to fulfill the year of his contract that was left away from LA, in another NBA team and even return to Spain, an idea that the Spanish player himself nurtured after the defeat of the national team in the quarterfinals of the Olympic Games against the USA.
However, the need to shore up the inner game opens a new avenue in history. And it is that several sources close to the team ensure that the Lakers are seriously rethinking the possibility of convincing Marc to continue one more season.
At least, officially, Gasol is not yet out of the team and is one of the few that the Lakers keep from last season with LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Talen Horton-Tucker y Wesley Matthews. In a few hours the pivot has gone from being practically out of the team to being considered a serious possibility. Who knows if he won’t be the Lakers’ next big signing.
