Broussard: Great move for Spurs to add Gasol (0:59)

While ESPN's Chris Broussard applauds the Spurs' signing of Pau Gasol, he doesn't think the addition will help San Antonio beat the Warriors and newly acquired superstar Kevin Durant. (0:59)

Pau Gasol is finalizing a two-year deal ‎with the San Antonio Spurs worth in excess of $30 million, according to league sources.

The deal will feature a player option in the second year, sources said.

Gasol had emerged as the target of a lucrative free-agency bidding war that had also involved the Portland Trail Blazers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Toronto Raptors, sources said.

Hall of Famer David Robinson took to Twitter on Monday to welcome Gasol to the Spurs' "family."

Gasol, who will turn 36 on Wednesday, spent the past two season with the Chicago Bulls and gave the team a solid offensive punch down on the blocks and provided a professional presence in the locker room.

Last year he averaged 16.5 points and 11.0 rebounds for a Bulls team that missed out on the playoffs.
