Marc Gasol wields his $ 25.6 million player option for the 2019-20 with the Toronto Raptors, announced the team.
Gasol could have obtained a free agency this summer if he had declined the option. The big all-star man wants to have the chance to defend the Raptors' title next season.
The Raptors have purchased gasoline from the Memphis Grizzlies on February 7, gaining 6.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 26 regular-season games with Toronto, while 46.5 percent out of the field, 44.2 percent remotely and 76.9 percent were shot off the free throw line.
During the playoffs, Gasol put up 9.4 percent points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. Gasol and his brother, Pau Gasol, became the first brothers in NBA history to win a title by winning the championship. Leonard will be an unrestricted free agent this off-season. Many believe that MVP's twofold final is being considered for signing a short-term contract with Toronto. If Kawhi decides to leave the Raptors, he probably signs with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Gasol has secured a place in the NBA Hall of Fame after winning the championship. It was a great career for the Spaniard.
