Marc Gasol to Play with Girona in the Spanish League, Not Yet Ready to Retire

Marc Gasol is not calling it just yet.

The 36-year old center’s tenure in the NBA may have come to an end but that doesn’t mean Gasol is ready to call it a career. The three-time All-Star has announced that he will be playing for Girona in the Spanish league.

Gasol is the owner and president of Girona, and originally founded the team in 2014. In the club’s first years, it only competed in the youth category, but as of 2017, it became the main basketball club in the city and created its first senior team that currently competes in the fourth-tier Liga EBA. Gasol, who spent last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, will play out the season with Girona before deciding whether to retire.

Through 13 career seasons, Gasol averaged 14.0 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. He was named the 2012-13 NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year and helped anchor the Toronto Raptors defense on their 2019 championship run. The former Memphis Grizzlies star has also led the Spanish National Team to two FIBA World Cup gold medals and two Olympic silver medals in his international playing career.

Marc’s older brother Pau has recently announced his retirement from basketball after spending last season with FC Barcelona.
