Pau Gasol stated today that he wishes to return to Europe in case a part of NBA next season is suspended.


Gasol has once more confirmed his intention to return to play in ACB, rather than stay inactive in case of a prolonged lockout, talking to Spanish TVE channel.

“I have thought about playing in Spain but it would be difficult. Playing for just a few months would be unfair to the team that has to take a gamble and invest in me.

But I know I don’t want to have a blank year if the season is suspended, something that would seem very strange to me given that the NBA is in a good period.

I don’t want to do nothing for a year because our careers are short and we have to take advantage of the years when we are still performing well.” Gasol stated.
