Pau Gasol
San Antonio Spurs (NBA) re-signed experienced 37-year old Spaniard international power forward Pau Gasol (213-113kg-80) to a three-year deal. He played there last season. In 80 NBA games he averaged 11.4ppg, 7.7rpg, 2.3apg and 1.1bpg. Gasol helped them to win the Southwest Division title (twice) (also twice).
The previous (15-16) season he played at the Bulls where in 72 NBA games he had very impressive stats: 16.5ppg, 11.0rpg, 4.1apg and 2.0bpg. It was a very successful season in his career as he was selected to NBA All-Star Game.
In 2001 Atlanta Hawks selected him as third overall pick in NBA draft.
Among other achievements he received Eurobasket.com All-Olympic Games 1st Team award in 2008, 2012 and 2016.
Gasol has been also a member of Spanish international program for some years. He has regularly played for Spanish senior team since 2000 and previously for U20 National Team between 1999 and 2000.
Gasol also represented Spain at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) last year. His team won Bronze and his stats at that event were 5 games: Score-4 (19.4ppg), Reb-1 (8.8rpg), 2.2apg, Blocks-3 (2.0bpg), FGP: 51.9%, 3PT-3 (60.0%), FT: 56.0%.
Gasol has spent his entire career in NBA playing for two other teams: LA Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies.
It may be one of last seasons in his extensive career, which he may end at the Spurs.
Gasol's game is described as: Despite 214cm, can play also at 3-4 positions. Great size advantage. High, thin and with a similar face. He is also a great long distance shooter and can hit from three in any moment. Maybe he is too weak and should get some more weight. Can do it all with great size. Ability to play any position and can score in many ways. Not strong and very thin. Doesn't rebound well and isn't a great defender either. Everyone compares him to cross between Dirk Nowitzki and Toni Kukoc and yes they are extremely similar in style.

San Antonio Spurs roster for 2017-2018:

Guards:
Manu Ginobili
Patrick Mills
Brandon Paul

Forwards:
Rudy Gay
Joffrey Lauvergne
Jaron Blossomgame

Center:
