Pau Gasol and Marc Gasol Will Practice With FC Barcelona

by October 05, 2011

The two brothers haven’t signed with the Spanish powerhouse, but they will train together during the lockout. From the LA Times: “[Pau] Gasol hadn’t formally decided how he’d keep himself busy during the lockout following the FIBA tournament, but he maintained he’d stay in his native Spain for however long the NBA work stoppage lasts. Gasol’s representatives haven’t returned multiple messages and emails regarding inquiries about his lockout plans, but his formal training with FC Barcelona would mark a reunion of sorts. He played there from 1998-2001 before entering the NBA. ‘For me @FCBarcelona is the best team in Europe,’ Gasol tweeted. ‘@MarcGasol and I are here to contribute even more to a group which is already excellent.'”
