The Memphis Grizzlies today finish off the last piece of a trade that sent former All-Star Pau Gasol to the L.A. Lakers last February. Pau's younger brother Marc Gasol signs with the club he literally grew up watching his older brother play for.
Marc is now 7'-1" and 265 pounds...quite a bit trimmer than the last time we saw him 5-years ago when he led Lausanne to the Tennessee Division Two State Championship game. Gasol used the time since to sculpt his body, and his game..and turn into the reigning Most Valuable Player of the Spanish ACB League, the Top League in Europe. Gasol averaged 16-points, 8-rebounds and 2 blocks a game last season.
Marc Gasol will join his brother Pau on the Spanish National Team in the Olympic Games this August in Beijing. You can see The Games right here on TV-5 and NBC beginning August 8th.
