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.

Mavericks emerged as a finalist for Marc Gasol in recent days, sources said. He’s now narrowed his choices: Lakers or Raptors. Los Angeles working on avenues to increase its salary offer.
