Marc Gasol ends silence, re-signs with Grizzlies
Marc Gasol has broken his silence and chosen to re-sign with the Memphis Grizzlies, agreeing to a 5-year, $110 million max contract. Some believe that Gasol was the last big domino in free agency, and the Grizzlies have kept their man. Gasol has been a stalwart in the Grizzlies offense at center, and he will at least be there for another four years (fifth-year player option in new contract).
There was never any doubt that Marc Gasol would re-sign with the Grizzlies, seeing as he told other teams that he was unavailable. What was strange is how long it took for them to seal the deal and get him to sign the contract, regardless of other teams wanting to talk to him and him not obliging. Gasol averaged 17.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.6 blocks per game during the 2014-15 season. These are all very good numbers for a center to put up, especially when playing in the tough Western Conference. He is an asset in the pick-and-roll game as well, and should be very productive in the next few years playing alongside Zach Randolph.
The Grizzlies locked up their guy, and now we wait to see what other minuscule moves are made for the rest of the free agent period. Of course, Lebron James still has yet to sign a contract, so maybe it is time for us all to be obsessed with where James will be playing in 2015.
