Pau Gasol's future is gearing up to be one of the major talking points of the offseason.

The Spanish big man will have a number of teams interested in offering him one final chance at another championship. 

His brother, Memphis Grizzlies man Marc, recently said that San Antonio would be the perfect destination for his sibling and Pau has now commented on the possibility of becoming a Spur.

In a recent interview with Spanish newspaper Marca, Gasol, who has a player option on his current deal with the Chicago Bulls, acknowledged that joining Gregg Popovich's team would be an 'interesting option' for him. 


At 35, time is running out for Pau to add a third ring to his collection. The Bulls are some way off being championship calibre and the Spurs, along with the Warriors, are a team that can offer a realistic shot at a title. 

Gasol had the chance to move to Texas in 2014 but chose the United Center instead. His stint with the Bulls has been far less successful than he would have envisaged. 


There are questions to ask about a move to the AT&T Center. How much time would he get on the hardwood? Would he take a pay cut? And will Tim Duncan be returning for another season?

However, regardless of the answers, it is clear to see he fits into the Spurs way of life. He is a veteran and is selfless on the hardwood as well as off it. Although, nothing is set in stone yet.
