Pau Gasol spoke about his decision to remain in the NBA and sign with the Portland Trail Blazers.

Here is what the two-time NBA champion told Marca:

“I really didn’t weigh the possibility of returning to Europe. My idea was to remain in the NBA.

After seeing all the options, the one that Portland had was the best and the one I felt fits best to my career at this time.

I didn’t consider returning to Europe, to Barcelona, which would be the team I could consider returning to.”
