The Golden State Warriors need a veteran center like Marc Gasol, according to NBA Hall of Famer Chris Mullin.

As Mullin believes, Gasol is a player the Warriors really need ahead of the 2020/21 season.

“I think ideally, you’d like a seasoned veteran. Even if he played limited minutes during the regular season and you got him ready towards the last 30 games or so, I don’t know, Marc Gasol or someone like that, that you really could depend on in the playoffs.

Again, the Warriors have had tremendous success using that center position by committee and not necessarily being the main focus, but being a very important piece,” Mullin said, via Ali Thanawalla of NBC Sports.

Gasol, a 2019 NBA champion with the Toronto Raptors, is a free agent.

The Warriors are expected to be title contenders next season, with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson healthy and back to the lineup.
