In recent months it was said Pau Gasol could end his career coming back to FC Barcelona. However, the player himself has said right now he does not contemplate this possibility. The option of hanging up his boots in the NBA looks more feasible. The pivot of Sant Boi is a free agent this summer and can negotiate with any team. In an interview with Marca, Gasol recognizes he is looking for a contract for three - five years in a competitive team.

Withdrawal Plans

"Right now, I think I will retire in the NBA. It's where I'm playing. It's the most probable option."

"If I get a contract and I feel like changing scenery, maybe I could end up in Europe. If I don't feel like doing it, then I'll start new challenges."

New team

"I would like two things to happen: going to a team that competes for the ring and have a good contract. At some point I'll have to prioritize one thing or the other. I have an open mind and I will evaluate all options."

"The contract? If they are 3, 4 or 5 years, it will be fine. For me it is a privilege to continue playing basketball."

Challenges

"Now I have nothing left to do. Just enjoy."
