Kendrick Perkins took to Twitter and reacted to Marc Gasol reportedly leaving the NBA to join Barcelona.
Per the reports, Barcelona and Gasol are close to a deal that will see the veteran center return to Europe after 12 years.
Perkins noted Gasol “must have watched that Presidential Debate last night” and that’s why he wants to leave the NBA.
The Catalans and head coach Sarunas Jasikevicius have denied the reports, though.
Gasol, a 2019 NBA champion with the Toronto Raptors, a three-time All-Star and the 2013 Defensive Player of the Year, is a free agent.
