Gasol, Lee to opt out of deals with Spurs

San Antonio Spurs center Pau Gasol in the second half of an NBA basketball game Thursday Jan. 5 2017 in Denver. The Spurs won 127-99

Veteran forward Pau Gasol will reportedly decline his $16.2 option with the San Antonio Spurs for the 2017-18 season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, who added that Gasol plans to stay with the organization on a longer term deal to remain with team. Now, it looks like David Lee will do the same.

Wojnarowski says that the move will likely provide salary cap relief for the Spurs as Gasol will come back on a smaller annual salary. Lee's option for next season is worth $1.6 million.

He signed a two-year deal with the Spurs last summer, and averaged 12.4 points and almost eight rebounds per game in his first year in San Antonio. His numbers were slightly down in the playoffs, averaging 4.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game in 16.3 minutes. The Spurs' possible "Big Three" of Paul, Leonard and Aldridge seems like a better situation for Paul than what the Clippers can offer, but it comes down to what he cherishes more: A legitimate shot at an National Basketball Association championship or a max deal worth about $205 million with L.A.


He previous two seasons, he was an All-Star player with the Bulls.

Lee, 34, suffered a partially torn patellar tendon in his left knee during Game 3 of the West finals against Golden State. He's expected to make a full recovery after six weeks and resume basketball activities in July.
