Barcelona head coach Sarunas Jasikevicius said the club has not had talks with Marc Gasol about joining the team despite rumors the former NBA All-Star has chosen to return to Spain for the end of his basketball career. 

“We have not talked with him. But we don’t have to rush: if there will be a real chance, we will go for it,” Jasikevicius told Gigantes del Basket.

Gasol has made no formal announcement about his playing status. The 35-year-old played for Barcelona from 2003-2006 before coming to the NBA.
