FC Barcelona Rumors
French big man Kevin Seraphin announced in an interview with FIRST TEAM that he’s retiring from professional basketball at the age of 30. Seraphin, the 17th pick of the 2010 NBA Draft, played seven years in the NBA with Washington, New York and Indiana. After leaving the NBA in 2017, he returned to Europe to spend the following two seasons in the EuroLeague and Liga ACB with FC Barcelona. He was inactive in 2019-20 and ultimately decided to retire after dealing with knee injuries.
Barcelona basketball player Nikola Mirotic says he has tested positive for COVID-19 and is out of the team’s Euroleague game at Valencia Basket. Mirotic says he is “well and following doctors’ instructions.” Barcelona head coach Sarunas Jasikevicius and assistant coach Darius Maskoliunas tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this month.
Gasol also commented on recent rumors linking his brother Marc Gasol to Barcelona. “Marc and me at Barca? I am surprised by the impact and journey of unverified information,” Gasol said, characterizing them as “fake news.”
Lori Ewing: An FC Barcelona spokesperson told me this morning that the club hasn’t called Marc Gasol, and he hasn’t contacted the club. “There’s nothing, nothing,” to (the rumour) Gasol is headed there, he said.
