Despite finishing his playing career, former NBA All-Star Pau Gasol doesn’t intend to walk away from basketball completely. During a recent appearance on JJ Redick’s The Old Man and the Three podcast, Gasol revealed he is “exploring a potential role” with the Golden State Warriors.

Gasol didn’t go into details about the role but did share that he had already spent some time inside the Warriors organization.

“I’m exploring a potential role with a team,” Gasol told Reddick. “I’ve been going a little bit under the radar with the Warriors, and they’ve kinda opened their doors for me to come in and be part of meetings, see the guys a little bit, and talk to some of the guys. It’s been nice.”

“Maybe I’m gonna do that more and more as I go forward,” he added.
