They were just talking about it during the game. Gasol is the big free agent the Spurs are going to target next summer. That would be insane. Duncan and Ginobili would have to return for another season if they were able to get Gasol.
If Spurs get him then it'll be huge. Gasol could be the perfect replacement for Duncan once he decides to hang it up. Monroe would be nice too, but he's far from being the defensive player that Marc currently is.
You would have to imagine that Duncan and Ginobili would re-sign with the Spurs if this were to happen. Even at 40 if you were to team up Duncan with Gasol, Duncan would contribute big time. Popovich could rest him like half the season and just need him during the playoffs.
And on top of Duncan/Gasol/Diaw/Splitter they'd still have Kyle Anderson. I want to see how he turns out. He could be the Spurs replacement at the 4 when Duncan retires. A core of Leonard/Gasol/Parker/Anderson/Green could be awesome. But I think Duncan would stay next season if they were able to get Gasol. He'd have to stick around one more season. Gasol would be the best big man Duncan has played with since David Robinson.
Are they targeting LMA as well? Either would be great there.
Even though LMA is my favorite player in the league and I'd be really sad to see him leave my hometown team, (which I don't think he will) I would be content with him on the spurs. Watching him play with Pop coaching would be absolutely creamworthy.
