Marc Gasol is just teasing Knicks fans at this point.
Gasol will be the most coveted free agent in the NBA this summer, and said on Monday morning that he hasn’t ruled out the New York Knicks as a potential free-agent destination.
He also indicated that he hasn’t put much thought into yet.
“I haven’t ruled anything out because I haven’t thought about anything so it would be [premature],” Gasol told a small group of reporters after the Grizzlies’ morning practice at Madison Square Garden. “The reports and stuff like that, I don’t know where they come from because in my mind I haven’t thought about it. I have no [idea] how they can go there. I don’t know. … We’re in the final stretch of the regular season and we want to get in a good feeling for the playoffs so, trust me, I’m not worrying or thinking about those things yet.”
Sheridan Hoops reported earlier this month that Gasol wouldn’t consider the Knicks because of the financial implications. Gasol can make more money if he remains in Memphis instead of signing elsewhere.
