Free agent big man Marc Gasol is reportedly only considering signing with the Los Angeles Lakers or re-signing with the Toronto Raptors. The Spanish center helped the Raptors win their first NBA title in 2019 and, like Serge Ibaka, could end up playing for a Los Angeles ball club next season, with the latter having agreed to join the Clippers.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Lakers are “working the marketplace” to find a way to submit an improved offer.

The Dallas Mavericks were also reported to be in the hunt for Gasol but have cooled their interest after re-signing Willie Cauley-Stein to a two-year deal.
