"I'm very excited to announce that next season (my 19th in the @NBA) I'll play for the @trailblazers," Gasol wrote on Twitter. "Ready and happy to join one of the best teams in the league!"
Gasol, 39, will join a frontcourt rotation that includes Hassan Whiteside, Zach Collins and Jusuf Nurkic, who suffered a serious leg injury last season. The Trail Blazers lost Enes Kanter in their rotation after he decided to sign with the Boston Celtics this off-season.
Gasol signed with the Milwaukee Bucks after a buyout with the San Antonio Spurs last season. He played only three games with the Bucks before suffering a season-ending foot injury. In 30 contests (six starts) between the Spurs and Bucks, he averaged a career-low 3.9 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.
Gasol, a six-time All-Star choice, won two NBA championships while starring alongside Kobe Bryant with the Los Angeles Lakers. In his 18-year career, he has averaged 17.0 points, 9.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.6 blocks per game with the Grizzlies, Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Spurs and Bucks.
