Marc Gasol is considering returning to Spain after 12 years in the NBA, per Jackie MacMullan of ESPN.

Gasol, who has been linked to a move in Barcelona, will become a free agent once free agency opens.

“Gasol is contemplating a return to Spain, and although a report he already has signed with Barcelona was erroneous, it might turn out to be simply premature. Nurse acknowledges that Gasol, who made $19.69 million this season, might move on.

He contemplated skipping the bubble altogether because of concerns over his elderly parents, who still live in Spain, which at one juncture was one of the worst hot spots for COVID-19,” MacMullan reports.

Gasol won the 2019 NBA championship with the Toronto Raptors.
