Six-time NBA All-Star Pau Gasol announced his retirement from basketball Tuesday, ending a career that spanned more than two decades.
“I’m going to retire from professional basketball,” Gasol said, according to the Associated Press (h/t ESPN). “It’s a difficult decision after so many years, but it’s a decision that I really thought over.”
Gasol, who spent seven seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, will reportedly have his No. 16 jersey retired by the franchise, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
