Marc Gasol succeeded in his bet for his return to Spain. The former Grizzlies pivot played at Basquet Girona last season to validate the rise in Liga Endesa, the Spanish first division, for 2022/23.
And Marc Gasol, owner and founder of the club born in 2014, was even due to return for one more season, at 37, after a 2021/22 fiscal year ended with 14.5 points and 8.2 rebounds on average.
Except that a difficulty has just emerged: with his status as president, he will not be able to put on the shorts and evolve on the floor. The rules of the Liga Endesa prohibit this accumulation of mandates.
The simplest solution, if the defender of the year 2013 wishes to continue his career and find the high level in Spain, as fifteen years ago, before his arrival in the NBA, will then be to leave his place as president.
