Marc Gasol will play in Los Angeles Lakers

Marc Gasol, NBA champion two years ago, will play in the franchise in which his brother Pau touched the sky and set two rings. And it comes at an ideal time. With the Lakers as current defending champions and to play alongside, no less, Anthony Davis and LeBron James.

The agreement will be for two seasons, according to sources, and although at 35 he is no longer the player who will win the 2013 DPOY as a Memphis star and comes from a weak year in the Raptors where he has not been seen in a state of optimal form, with the adequate preparation and the incentive that supposes defending the colors of his brother, of a historical franchise and doing it, in turn, together with two beasts and future Hall of Famers such as LeBron and La Ceja, should give us a remarkable version of the Spanish pivot, who in any case will be quite liberated when it comes to covering too much field for being so surrounded by exceedingly athletic characters.

Rob Pelinka seems to close like this, with this movement, what has been a busy and intense market, both in entries and exits, trying to renew, without altering the essence, of a champion team. Let’s review:

Departures: Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, Dwight Howard, JaVale MCGee, Danny Green.

Frank Vogel, now, will be in charge of regulating Marc’s minutes to get him to the final stretch of the season in the best possible shape, where the Lakers will once again face teams that, such as Clippers, Bucks, Nuggets, Jazz , Portland, Celtics or Nets, will aspire, like them, also to everything.
