The Raptors are unlikely to offer Marc Gasol more than a one-year deal in free agency as the team looks to maintain cap flexibility for the 2021 offseason.
It's no secret the Raptors' entire game plan this offseason will revolve around maintaining enough cap space to sign a max free agent in 2021. In light of that goal and various statements made by GM Masai Ujiri it seems the team is unlikely to bring back Gasol on a long-term deal. However, the big Spaniard is in the final years of his career and will probably be looking for a two- to three-year contract to cap off his time in the NBA. Of course there is also the recent report that he's considering returning to Europe. All these things considered, odds are Gasol won't return to Toronto next year.
