The Toronto Raptors announced on Wednesday that Marc Gasol will exercise his $25.6 million player option for the 2019-20 season, meaning he will be with the team for at least one more year. The big man enters the final season of a five-year deal he originally signed with the Memphis Grizzlies in 2015.
While the Raptors and the rest of the National Basketball Association await the free agent decision of Kawhi Leonard, the reigning National Basketball Association champions are getting at least one more piece back.
Gasol, obtained by the Raptors from Memphis at the National Basketball Association trade deadline last season, averaged 9.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.1 blocked shots a game during Toronto's playoff run to the National Basketball Association crown, the first for any non-US franchise. The 34-year-old is now scheduled to become a free agent in the summer of 2020.
