Marc Gasol Opts In his Contract, Will Play for Raptors Next Year

The Toronto Raptors are sort of happy to have Marc Gasol return for one more season. he opted in to the last year of his contract and it is going to cost the Raptors a lot of money.

In fact, they will be giving Gasol about $25.6 million. Gasol was instrumental in helping them win their first championship. When the Raptors traded for Gasol, they knew that he was most likely going to opt in and were willing to pay the price to acquire him.

 

Gasol will not live up to his contract and nobody is expecting him to. Last season, Gasol averaged 16.6 points and 7.9 rebounds as a member of the Raptors and the Memphis Grizzlies. He averaged over 9 points in the playoffs and grabbed 6.4 rebounds but his presence on the defensive end is where he earned his money.

Now that Gasol is coming back, the Raptors can focus on re-signing Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green to bring back all of their starters. We saw how good this Raptors team was and it would be great to see them all return and defend their title.
