Barcelona GM Juan Carlos Navarro will do “everything possible” to bring Marc Gasol back home next season

By Eurohoops team /

Just a few hours after the completion of the 2020-21 EuroLeague season which didn’t end in the desired way for FC Barcelona, the team seems to be setting sights on its reinforcements for next season.

According to Carrusel Deportivo’s Antoni Daimiel, Barcelona GM Juan Carlos Navarro has Marc Gasol at the top of his agenda for next season’s plans and will “try everything” to bring the Lakers star back home.

“This operation must not be ruled out for the future”, said Daimiel. If so happens, and assuming that Pau Gasol continues his run with Barcelona, fans will have the chance to see the two brothers competing side to side for the Blaugranas.

36-year-old Gasol has played in 52 games for the Lakers in the NBA this season and has averaged 5.0 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.1 assists. The Lakers are currently at a tie in the playoffs series against the Suns (2-2) in the first round of the playoffs.

Now it remains to be seen if Gasol has more offers on the table once the offseason arrives, and/or if Navarro can persuade the Catalan big man to return for another run with Barca.

It has to be noted that there have been reports at the start of the season that Marc Gasol may join Barcelona, but the player himself denied that after signing with the LA Lakers.
