The San Antonio Spurs have reached an agreement to sign Pau Gasol to a three-year contract extension. Gasol was a free agent after his first season in San Antonio and they decided to keep him for likely the rest of his career. San Antonio is looking to retain as much talent as possible to contend with the Golden State Warriors next season.
Gasol had an impressive regular season for the Spurs but struggled in the postseason. At this stage of his career, Gasol is nothing more than a role player and he does a good job at it. The rumors of LaMarcus Aldridge being on the trade block also makes it more important for the Spurs to keep the big man.
