The award-winning Spanish center announced his new team after 13 successful NBA seasons.

Despite rumors that he could return to Barça and play one last season with his brother Pau, opening the doors to compete at the highest European level and with relevance in a candidate team for the Euroleague, Marc rejected the option .

It was precisely by choosing Girona (Akasvayu) over Barça that Marc exploded as a player and caught the attention of the teams in the best league in the world. In fact, his farewell to the ACB was in style, proclaiming himself MVP of the competition on 08/07.

Instead, he has chosen to return to the city that gave him so much joy and from which he made the jump to the NBA, although in a different team from the one in which he played. Now, the Gasol middleweight will try to do his bit to rescue his club from a complicated sporting situation and dream of a return to the Endesa League.
