Marc Gasol agrees to two-year contract with Lakers

Report: Golden State Warriors interested in signing free agent centre Marc Gasol

One day after Serge Ibaka agreed to join the Los Angeles Clippers, Marc Gasol has reportedly agreed on a two-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers. Cleveland is sending Jordan Bell and Alfonzo McKinnie to the Lakers in the deal, sources said. SNY NBA insider Ian Begley reported earlier Sunday that the Knicks were a potential landing spot for McGee, with the Lakers' pursuit of Gasol in mind.

The 6-foot-11 Spaniard was an integral piece that helped put the Raptors get over the hump and win their first-ever National Basketball Association championship in 2019.


Another big headline: Marc Gasol comes to the Lakers after brother Pau Gasol went to the same franchise over a decade earlier and helped L.A. win Kobe Bryant's last two National Basketball Association titles in 2009 and 2010. His 13-year career with the Grizzlies and Raptors includes three all-star game appearances, two all-NBA teams and the 2012-13 Defensive Player of the Year award. The Raptors allowed a measly 98.9 points per 100 possessions when the Spaniard was on the court last season. Last season, Gasol averaged 7.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists.

In what was a stunner, they quickly shifted gears and reached an agreement to sign the reigning NBA Sixth Man of the Year Montrezl Harrell, who can provide some frontcourt depth.
