Marc Gasol is on the verge of dropping out of the Lakers

According to the Bleacher Report, Los Angeles Lakers centre Marc Gasol is close to leaving the Californian club. According to the source, the Lakers may buy the Spaniard’s contract. The decision is related to the signing of centre Andre Drummond.

Now the team has three centres at once: Drummond, Gasol and Montrez Harrell. While head coach Frank Vogel says the Lakers need all three, it’s clear that 36-year-old Gasol is third on the list here.

The 2019 NBA champion with the Toronto Raptors is averaging 4.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists this season. On average, he spends 19.8 minutes on the court per match.

The Lakers offered Drummond a veteran minimum contract. The player does not prioritize salary, as in Los Angeles, he will receive a place in the starting lineup and the opportunity to fight for the NBA title. Drummond recently met with the Boston Celtics but eventually gave up on the idea of ​​joining the club.
