TORONTO (WMC) - Former Grizzlies star Marc Gasol is exercising his one-year player option for next season, which means he’ll return to Toronto.

It’s for $25.6 million, the final year of a five-year deal he signed with Memphis back in 2015.

Big Spain could’ve declined the option to become a free agent, but he chooses to return to the NBA Champion Raptors.
