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.

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.

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.
May 16 - 12:08 AM

Marc Gasol hit 8-of-22 shots for 18 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's 98-78 loss to the Warriors.

Gasol played well, despite the poor shooting, but the Grizzlies were never in this game after the first quarter. If nothing else, Gasol is as reliable a center as there is left in the playoffs. The Grizzlies were up 2-1 in this series, but now trail 3-2, and Game 7, if necessary, will be back in Oracle Arena. No, it doesn't look good for Memphis at this point.
May 14 - 1:29 AM

Marc Gasol scored 19 points on 7-of-19 shooting with 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in the Grizzlies' 101-84 Game 4 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

Gasol has looked fatigued at the end of games throughout the series so it was a bit surprising to see him play 38 minutes in a game that was mostly lost in the second half. He'll need to continue holding onto the rope for the Grizzlies if they have any chance of taking 2-of-3 games to win the series. Game 5 is at Oracle on Wednesday with the series tied 2-2.
May 12 - 12:49 AM

Marc Gasol scored 21 points with 15 boards before fouling out in 36 minutes during Saturday's Game 3 win over the Warriors.

Gasol added two assists and a steal and went 9-of-10 from the free throw line, but he slowed down as the game wore on and scored just two points in the fourth quarter. Gasol's size has given the Warriors a lot of problems and it also helped that Andrew Bogut was limited to 21 minutes because of foul trouble. The Grizzlies now lead 2-1 over the Warriors, with Game 4 set to take place in Memphis on Monday.
May 9 - 10:57 PM

Marc Gasol scored 26 points with 14 rebounds to win Game 5 and clinch the series against the Blazers on Wednesday.

Gasol was shooting just 37.5 percent from the field in his previous four games, but he got back on track tonight by going 9-of-15 from the field while adding three assists and two blocks to his name. The Grizzlies will now have the daunting task of facing the Warriors in the next round, and Gasol will have his hands full with Andrew Bogut manning the paint for Golden State.
Apr 30 - 12:31 AM

Marc Gasol made 7-of-16 from the field for 21 points during a Game 4 99-92 loss to the Blazers on Monday, adding seven rebounds, six assists and one block.

The Grizzlies fell apart late and lost the fourth quarter 31-17. Gasol hasn't been as efficient in this series, entering this game with just 18.3 points on 35.4 percent from the field in his previous three. He's still making 28-of-32 from the line (87.5 percent), so the poor shooting from the field is offset a little. The Grizzlies will look to end the series on Wednesday.
Apr 28 - 1:24 AM

Marc Gasol scored 25 points with seven boards, four assists and three blocks in a decisive win over the Blazers on Saturday to give the Grizzlies a 3-0 series lead.

Gasol shot just 6-of-17 from the field, but he was a bully in the paint and held Robin Lopez to just four points and four boards on the night. The Grizzlies will look to sweep the series on Monday in Portland, but it might be a lot tougher than they think if Mike Conley (eye) is unable to suit up for that one.
Apr 26 - 1:39 AM

Marc Gasol hit just 4-of-15 shots against the Blazers on Wednesday, but still finished with 15 points, seven rebounds, five assists, a steal and three blocks in the 97-82 win.

He's one of the best centers in the league and despite the poor shooting tonight, still rewarded his fantasy owners. He looks like a good bet to keep playing well, and should also continue on to Round 2 as the Grizzlies hold a 2-0 lead over the Blazers in Round 1.
Apr 22 - 10:54 PM

Marc Gasol contributed 15 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three blocks with only one turnover vs. the short-handed Blazers on Sunday.

Gasol led the NBA with 114 points created when passing to cutters out of the post this season, just one facet of the former Defensive Player of the Year's impressive skill-set. He combined with Zach Randolph (14 points, nine boards) to dominate the Blazers' frontcourt tonight, as Memphis used efficient offense and stifling defense to run away with an easy win.
Apr 19 - 10:51 PM

Marc Gasol sure looked 100 percent during a huge 95-83 win over the Pacers on Wednesday, scoring a career-high 33 points with 13 boards, two assists, one block and one turnover.

The Memphis crowd should have been chanting "Spaniard" after this one. Gasol was expected to be on a minutes limit, but he played one of his best games of the year. Now, the Grizzlies will get a home game in the first round when the Blazers come to town. Both teams are really banged up, so health will be a massive factor.
Apr 16 - 1:11 AM

Marc Gasol (ankle) will play vs. the Pacers on Wednesday but he will be on a minute-limit.

The Grizzlies are without both Tony Allen and Mike Conley tonight, so they'll take anything they can get from Gasol. The Grizzlies will be either the No. 5 or No. 6 seed in the playoffs -- to get the No. 5 seed they'll need to beat Indiana and have either the Spurs or Rockets lose on Wednesday.
