With Pau Gasol’s free agency decision up in the air, his brother Marc Gasol offered him simple advice: “Go to San Antonio.” Gasol has since gone on to address his plans in accordance to his brother’s comments.
Gasol told the media, “The Spurs would be an interesting option for me.”
The Spurs wanted to acquire Gasol the last time he was a free agent but he decided to go to the Chicago Bulls instead.
There have been some upsetting comments coming from the Gasol camp and at this point, it’s unlikely for him to resign with the Bulls. Gasol averaged 16.5 points, 11 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game this year. Although he contributed with All-Star form statistics, the season went down hill through all of the adversity.
If the Bulls acquire another star and gather a better supporting cast, Gasol might reconsider and stay in Chicago. For now, however, Gasol is expected to sign with another team this summer.
