Marc Gasol became the latest addition to the Los Angeles Lakers roster after officially signing a two-year deal which is reported to have neither team nor player option in second season.

Just a few hours after the Lakers announced Gasol’s signing, the 35-year-old veteran talked about why he was signed by the defending NBA champions.

“I’m happy. I think the Lakers have signed me because of the type of player I am, because of the way I play I am complementary to the players there, because I can space the floor and because of my ability to pass,” Gasol told Ibai Llanos, per MARCA.
