After his stint in Los Angeles, he was signed to the Chicago Bulls as a free agent in 2014, where earned three of his six All-Star appearances.

Gasol retired from the NBA in Fall 2021 after playing a final season with Spain. His jersey will hang alongside other Lakers legends like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O’Neal, Wilt Chamberlain, Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant.
