Pau Gasol signed a three-year, $48 million contract with the San Antonio Spurs this offseason, but Year 3 of the deal is partially guaranteed for only $6.7 million.

Gasol signed a two-year, $30 million deal with the Spurs in 2016 and he declined his $16.2 million player option for 17-18 to become a free agent.

Gasol's decision to become a free agent and subsequently sign for more seasons gave the Spurs cap flexibility in 2017 that went unused.
