Pau Gasol returns to Spain

Very happy to come back home. Força Barça! I’m very happy to announce that I’m coming home and that I’ll soon join the ranks of Barca’s basketball team. I want to put my skills and experience at the disposal of the dub at a key point in the season, while at the same time making progress in my physical condition and getting into the rhythm of competition. I’m happy to return to the club where I began, and I’m excited about this new opportunity I hope to contribute to the first team very soon. I want to thank Barca and its technical staff for making it possible to join them.

Spanish national team head coach Sergio Scariolo said that Pau Gasol will need to spend a certain amount of period playing competitive basketball to be fully ready to participate in the 2021 Olympic Games. “Obviously, being in Tokyo involves playing a few months of competition in a team,” Scariolo said in an interview with AS after the completion of the 2022 EuroBasket Qualifiers. Spain closed the February window with two wins vs. Poland and Israel to finish the stage with a qualifying record 4-2 in Group A.
