Lakers agree to two-year deal with Marc Gasol

THE Los Angeles Lakers and three-time All-Star center Marc Gasol agreed to a two-year deal, multiple outlets reported Sunday night.

The Lakers reportedly opened up cap room for Gasol by trading center JaVale McGee and a second-round draft choice to the Cleveland Cavaliers for forwards Jordan Bell and Alfonzo McKinnie. Both players have non-guaranteed contracts, so the Lakers may keep both players or choose to waive one or both.

The 35-year-old Gasol is on the downside of his career after being a stalwart for the Memphis Grizzlies for 10 1/2 seasons. He spent the past 1 1/2 seasons with the Toronto Raptors and was a key figure on the club’s 2019 championship team.

Gasol averaged 7.5 points and 6.3 rebounds in 44 games (43 starts) last season. Gasol was initially a second-round draft choice by the Lakers in 2007, but was playing in Spain when he was shipped to Memphis in February 2008 in a deal that brought his older brother Pau to Los Angeles.

Gasol was a first-team All-NBA selection for the 2014-15 season and a second-team choice the following season. He was the NBA Defensive Player of the Year for the 2012-13 campaign.

Over 12 NBA seasons, Gasol has career averages of 14.6 points, 7.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 839 career games (824 starts). He has blocked 1,196 shots, eighth among active players. — Reuters
