Pau Gasol hasn't entered an NBA game since March 10, 2019, but has entertained the idea of finishing his career as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.
When speaking to Ryan Ward of ClutchPoints, Gasol addressed the topic of returning to the Lakers without sounding optimistic about it coming to fruition:
"Seriously considered? It's not that I've had many opportunities. It's something that has been on my mind. Kind of like the potential of maybe finishing or playing my last year with the Lakers would be great. It's appealing if you will, but the opportunity never really kind of presented itself in a serious official manner. I have a great relationship and love for Jeanie and the Lakers organization and the city of Los Angeles, which is always going to remain extremely meaningful to me no matter what, but we'll see. But not really."
Gasol did sign a one-year deal with the Portland Trail Blazers in the offseason, but the team waived him in November. Gasol won two championships during his time with the Los Angeles Lakers and is looking to finish off his Hall of Fame NBA career in the city of Angels.
Gasol is 39 years old and a six-time All-Star.
