Former Bulls center, Pau Gasol has taken to his Twitter to announce he will be signing with the San Antonio Spurs.
After many days of a lot of thinking, I’ve decided to join the @spurs!Looking forward to this new chapter with the best aspirations!
It was rumoured on Monday that Spurs were looking to sign the free agent on a two-year $30 million deal. The deal will feature a player option in the second year.
Gasol, who will turn 36 on Wednesday, spent the past two seasons with the Chicago Bulls. He gave the team a solid offensive punch down on the blocks and provided a professional presence in the locker room.
He averaged 16.5 points and 11.0 rebounds in 2015-16 for a Bulls team that missed the playoffs.
