Spanish website says Marc Gasol to sign with Grizzlies

According to Spanish website as.com, Marc Gasol intends to sign a 3 year contract worth $9 million with the Memphis Grizzlies.

Under NBA rules, the Grizzlies cannot legally negotiate with or sign Gasol until July 1st, so no one is commenting.

Gasol, the younger brother of former Grizzlies player and current Lakers player Pau Gasol, attended high school at Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis.

The Grizzlies obtained the rights to Marc Gasol as part of the February 1 trade with the Los Angeles Lakers that included his brother Pau.

Marc Gasol was drafted 48th overall by the Lakers in the 2007 NBA draft.

At 7'1 and 280 pounds, Marc averaged 16.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.8 blocks in 34 games for Akasvayu Girona last season.

Gasol was named the AsociaciĆ³n de Clubs de Baloncesto (ACB) Most Valuable Player after the 2008 season.
