NBA Free Agency: Raptors Interested in Pau Gasol

Marc Stein reports that the Raptors are among the teams with interest in Pau Gasol

All has general been quiet on the Raptors' front since the DeMar extension two hours into free agency. After the Paul Millsap dreams died with Al Horford's signing in Boston, the only real rumours we've seen the Raptors attached to have been TMZ (seriously) reporting Dwane Casey has been seen talking to Meyers Leonard and Ryan Anderson.

This isn't alarming however, knowing that stealth is the name of the game for Masai Ujiri. The most recent report to come out to do with the Raptors linked them to Pau Gasol:

Pau Gasol is a bit of a weird fit given that the Raptors have an incumbent heavy-minutes center in Jonas Valanciunas, drafted another one in Jakob Poeltl and are developing another one in Bebe. Given the cap gymnastics and salary dump it would require to fit him on the roster, I'm not sure I'm a fan.

But we'll let you decide.
