Grizzlies, Marc Gasol agree to deal

(WMC-TV) - The Memphis Grizzlies and Marc Gasol have agreed to a deal in principal, the Spanish National Team star tweeted Monday night.

"I'm proud to say that we have reached a tentative agreement with my team @memgrizz, can't wait to get on the court with all my teammates," Gasol tweeted to his followers.

While the terms of the deal haven't been announced, reports earlier in the day said the Houston Rockets had offered Gasol $55 million over years. The Grizzlies had the right to counter any offer because the center is a restricted free agent.
