Earlier this week, Grizzlies center Marc Gasol went on the record saying he would like brother Pau to join the Spurs in free agency this coming summer.
Now we’re getting Spurs talk straight from the horse’s mouth. In an article for Spanish newspaper Marca, the free agent forward admits San Antonio would be an interesting destination for him.
“There’s talk about passing of the torch with San Antonio and a hypothetical passing of the torch with Duncan,” Gasol wrote. “For starters, nobody knows if Tim is retiring and he’s somebody whom I have maximum respect for. In closing, I have to admit the Spurs would be an interesting option for me. I recognize I’m a fan of the way the franchise has done things over the years and the way they play basketball on the court.”
The Spurs took part in the Pau Gasol sweepstakes a couple of years ago, but the Spanish big man opted for the Chicago Bulls instead.
