Asked Friday how much longer he wants to play, he said he doesn’t expect to play after the 2018-19 season.
“This is a very difficult question,” Gortat answered. “The way NBA politics goes right now, I’m afraid that next year might be my last year. This is how I feel right now.
“Obviously, we’re going to have a summer, then another year of basketball and then I’m going to think about it.
“But the way I feel right now, it’s like next year might be my last year of my career.”
