After Durant picked him team the rest were sure to follow. Per Reports from The Vertical, Pau Gasol will agree on a 2yr/$30M deal with the San Antonio Spurs.
With Tim Duncan leaning towards retirement this will be a great pickup for San Antonio. Gasol last played for the Chicago Bulls last season but with the departure of Derrick Rose, coupled with his age Gasol wasn’t up for another rebuild. The Spurs still must look into adding another PG as Tony Parker has slowed some but with a front court featuring the skills of LaMarcus Aldridge, Kawhi Leonard and now Gasol they may have enough to challenge the newly Big 4 of the Warriors.
If last season was any indication, Gasol still has plenty left in the tank as he averaged 17/11/2. The Spurs will be contenders again next season.
