Report: Marc Gasol agrees to two-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers

Toronto Raptors big man Marc Gasol is heading to the Los Angeles Lakers after reportedly agreeing to a two-year deal, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

In 44 games last season, Gasol averaged 7.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists, shooting 38.5% from the 3-point line on 3.4 attempts per game. NBA.com's Scott Rafferty had Gasol as the fourth-best available center in this year's free agency class and the 18th best available player overall.

With the Lakers losing Dwight Howard in free agency and trading JaVale McGee to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Gasol will line up in the frontcourt with Anthony Davis and newly-acquired free agent Montrezl Harrell.

The 35-year-old comes full circle after he was drafted by the Lakers with the 48th pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, before being traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in the deal that brought his older brother Pau to Hollywood.
