Pau Gasol Won't Consider Retirement Until 2020 At Earliest

Nov 15, 2018 9:51 AM

The future of Pau Gasol with the San Antonio Spurs beyond the current season is a mystery. Gasol has a partially guaranteed deal for 19-20 with the Spurs only obligated to pay $6.7 million of his $16 million salary.

Even if the Spurs decline their option, Gasol is not ready to consider retirement.

“In two summers, I might think about it a little more,” Gasol said. “It might be an option then, maybe. And maybe not because I love what I do. I work my ass off to do what I do at this stage, to keep up with the pace of the game and the progress and the development of the game today. I take pride in that. That’s what makes me who I am.”

Gasol is currently moving around in a walking boot as he’s recovering from what the Spurs are labeling “left foot soreness.”
