Pau Gasol recently said he’s “very likely” to opt out of his contract this coming summer. That isn’t too surprising, considering his player option would give him slightly less than $7.7MM next season, a low number for a starting center. What’s more, Gasol will likely secure at least a two-year deal in the open market. While his production is down this year, Gasol is still averaging 14.4 points and 10.8 rebounds per game.
At 35, Gasol’s best years are behind him, but he appears to have plenty left in the tank. The Bulls will reportedly make a push to re-sign him, but there should be no shortage of potential suitors to compete with for Gasol’s services.
That leads us to the question for today: Which team do you expect Pau Gasol to be playing for next season?
