After an exciting and uplifting finish to their season last year, it looks like the Memphis Grizzlies want to keep building on the blocks they already have. They beat the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs and took the Oklahoma City Thunder to seven games. A big part of that team was Marc Gasol. Reuters is reporting that the Grizzlies have re-signed the Spanish center.
“Gasol, who had used his Twitter page to say a tentative agreement had been reached Monday, agreed to a four-year contract for $57.7 million, according to local media reports.”
When Marc came into the league, all that people were saying was that he’s overweight and not anywhere near as talented as his brother, Pau. Since then, he’s slimmed down and used last year’s playoffs as a springboard into the spotlight. He’s now a solid NBA big man and this was a great sign for Memphis.
However, this should serve as a friendly reminder to the Spurs that it’s time to get a big man.
