Marc Gasol stated during a recent interview that he'd "love" to play for Spain in the 2016 Olympic Games.
"If I am healthy, I would love to play the Olympic Games," said Gasol. "And I can assure that I would have played also the Olympic Qualifying Tournament next summer." Gasol elected to rest his body rather than play in the EuroBasket tournament this summer, but if healthy, you can bet he'll suit up for Spain to compete in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Gasol was a stud last season, compiling averages of 17.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.6 blocks per game on 49.4 percent shooting from the field and 79.5 percent from the stripe. He'll enter the 2015-16 season fresh, and will make for a fine second-round selection on draft day. Sep 23 - 10:11 AM

Marc Gasol said he won't play for Team Spain this summer.

Fresh off his five-year, $100 million-plus contract, Gasol said he will take the summer off from international play. "My refusal to Spain is temporary," Gasol said before adding he'd like to play in the 2016 Olympics. "The franchise recommended me a rest this summer. I'd like to be in Rio". It's great news for fantasy owners that the big man will be fresh coming into 2015-16 and he should have no trouble providing second-round value in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 7 - 1:15 PM

Marc Gasol has agreed to a five-year, $100 million-plus deal to return to the Grizzlies.

It was really just a matter of time for Gasol. Plenty of teams had interest in Gasol for obvious reasons, but those teams gave up hope when free agency started. He'll resume his role as a focal point of the offense, following his 2014-15 season with averages of 17.4 points, 7.8 boards, 3.8 dimes and 1.6 blocks. He'll be a target in the second round next year.
Jul 6 - 4:21 PM

Marc Gasol is finalizing a five-year deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, according to Gigantes.

Gasol's deal will reportedly be for 5 years and $108 million and will keep him in Memphis until he is 35 years old. We'll keep Gasol's situation updated once his contract is finalized, but this is great news for Grizzlies fans as their franchise player isn't going anywhere. After averaging 17.4 points, 7.8 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.6 blocks, and 0.9 steals per game in 2014-15, Gasol shouldn't last past the end of the second round in fantasy drafts.

Jul 2 - 9:52 AM

The Grizzlies are expected to re-sign Marc Gasol as early as Wednesday.

Gasol is expected to only meet with Memphis, so the two sides should have no problems reaching an agreement. The Lakers and Knicks were rumored to be in the running for Gasol, but it doesn't look like there will be any drama in Memphis. Gasol is currently discussing a deal with Grizzlies owner Robert Pera, so we could have another update shortly.
Jul 1 - 10:29 AM

Marc Gasol will reportedly only meet with the Grizzlies when free agency begins on July 1.

Gasol is set to host a contingent of Grizzlies officials when free agency begins and has declined to schedule any meetings with rival teams who are interested in him. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but it sounds like Grizzlies fans can exhale as a verbal agreement will presumably follow Wednesday's meeting in Spain.

The Knicks gave up the idea of pursuing Marc Gasol in free agency, multiple sources told the New York Post.

New York never—ever—had a realistic shot at landing the big man, and we can now move on from these ridiculous rumors before free agency officially begins.
Jun 29 - 11:10 AM

According to the Los Angeles Times, Marc Gasol has no interest in joining the Lakers this summer.

Gasol reportedly didn't like the way the Lakers treated his brother (Pau) during his last few years with the organization, so the Lakers should probably shift their focus to other free agents. Gasol hasn't said much regarding his free agency, but the Grizzlies are the still the favorites to retain his services. Regardless of where he lands this summer, Gasol will be an elite asset in fantasy leagues once again and should be off the board by the second round.
Jun 28 - 9:28 AM

Marc Gasol is reportedly expected to remain with the Grizzlies, although no final decision has been made at this point.

Gasol will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but he said during an interview back in May that he has "not considered changing equipment," and most reports have him remaining in Memphis. The Grizzlies do own Gasol's Bird Rights, so they'll be able to offer him significantly more money than any other team, including an extra year, further tilting the odds in Memphis' favor of retaining their prized possession. He'll be off the boards by the second-round of fantasy drafts next season.
Jun 18 - 6:12 PM

Marc Gasol said he hasn't thought about changing teams this summer.

While Gasol will be one of the top free agent targets this offseason, he said he hasn't given any thought to joining a new team. "I have not considered changing equipment," Gasol said. "Everyone knows the relationship of Memphis with the whole family. It is special and has marked us. You have to put everything in balance. The decision is good because I do good." While Gasol also added that the Grizzlies need to make improvements, all signs are currently pointing to the 30-year-old staying in Memphis.

Marc Gasol became the first Grizzlies player to be named to the All-NBA first team.

Gasol finished the 2014-15 regular season with averages of 17.4 points, 7.8 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.6 blocks and 0.9 steals per game and will now enter free agency as one of the most coveted players on the market. While Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace is confident Gasol will be back in Memphis next year, fantasy owners can feel good about selecting the big man in the first round no matter what uniform he's wearing for the 2015-16 season.
May 21 - 1:11 PM

Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said he "firmly" believes that Marc Gasol will be back in Memphis next season.

Gasol has been playing his cards close to his chest, but it's hard to imagine him leaving Memphis. For obvious reasons, Gasol will be one of the biggest names on the open market, and teams such as the Spurs and Knicks will likely go after him aggressively. This story will only heat up as we approach July 1, so be sure to check back for all the latest updates. Regardless, Gasol will be an elite asset next season no matter where he lands.
May 20 - 11:27 AM

Marc Gasol said he hasn't shifted his focus to his upcoming free agency.

While Gasol will be one of the most highly-coveted unrestricted free agents this summer, he said his thoughts are still focused on what went wrong in the Golden State series. "I haven't put all the scenarios on the table yet," Gasol said. "I'm still trying to figure out what I could have done different to [help us] beat Golden State. That's where my mind is the last 72 hours. I know that's not the point you guys want to hear, but that's the reality. I woke up this morning with that feeling over and over again of, 'What could I have done better?'" We'll be keeping a close eye on Gasol leading up to July 1, but he'll remain an elite fantasy option next season no matter what uniform he's wearing.

Marc Gasol's teammates are confident that he will be back with the Grizzlies next season, but the possibility of him joining the Spurs is a concern.

Gasol reportedly hasn't talked about his plans this summer, but it's clear that he loves Memphis and it's hard to imagine him leaving. That being said, Gasol might be intrigued with the idea of joining a powerhouse such as the Spurs, and even though the Grizzlies can offer more money and an extra year, Memphis should be a little worried. He finished the regular season with averages 17.4 points, 7.8 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.6 blocks and 0.9 steals per game, so he will be an elite fantasy asset next season regardless of where he ends up. Expect the rumors to heat up as we approach July 1st.
May 16 - 9:36 AM

Marc Gasol made 7-of-23 from the field for 21 points against the Warriors during a season-ending loss on Friday, adding 15 boards, four assists and five blocks in 44 minutes.

He'll enter free agency with one of his least efficient shooting lines in the postseason. The Grizzlies crowd gave him a standing ovation and obviously want him back. Gasol is going to fetch a max deal and the Grizzlies are still the favorites to land him. Teams like the Spurs have also been rumored to be a contender.
