When free agency opened earlier this month, plugged-in sources across the league considered the Spurs’ courtship of (Pau) Gasol a long shot at best.

Much of that skepticism was rooted in the unavoidable gulf between what the Spurs could offer and what Gasol might command on the open market.

Free agent Pau Gasol, who said in May that the Spurs seemed “like a very good option,” averaged 17.4 points and 9.7 rebounds last season for the Lakers.

Yet the Spurs have remained persistent in their pitch to Gasol since the opening of free agency July 1. Eleven days later, as much of the team’s front office staff heads to Las Vegas for the start of NBA Summer League this week, the Spurs remain in contention for the 7-footer’s services.
