Pau Gasol thinks his brother Marc may end up with the New York Knicks when he hits free agency after the 2014-15 season.
The Knicks are a logical suitor as they'll have over $20 million in cap space next summer, but it sounds like the brother have already spoken about Pau's former coach. "Hopefully he’ll have a strong year and all the options in the world, because he’s one of the top centers, interior players in the league, so any team would be fortunate to have him," Pau said. "It’s a personal decision. I talked to my brother enough about Phil that he knows what he brings to the table. Gasol had a strong season opener with 32 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two blocks and is one of the better centers in fantasy basketball as long as he is healthy.

Marc Gasol hit 12-of-17 shots for 32 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in Wednesday's opening win against Minnesota.

He's coming off a big preseason and it looks like he's going to be a dominant center this season. If he's healthy, he should be in your lineup.

The Knicks could make a play for Marc Gasol during 2015 NBA free agency.

The Knicks will be armed with cap space and looking for a second star to pair with Carmelo Anthony, so expect reports like this to continue throughout the season. Regardless, Gasol and the Knicks have been linked more than a few times, and it makes sense considering Gasol's skillset and New York's commitment to the Triangle Offense.

Marc Gasol's preseason came to a quiet end on Sunday, as he scored three points with two rebounds and no other stats in 12 minutes of action.

Coach Dave Joerger simply gave his big man some rest tonight, in anticipation of their season opener on Wednesday. Gasol is relatively undervalued in most fantasy drafts, as his lackluster 2013-14 campaign was due solely to a fluke MCL injury. Expect a return to form this year, putting him in the mix for top-30 value.
Oct 24 - 11:10 PM

Marc Gasol hit 6-of-10 shots for 16 points, nine rebounds and two blocks on Wednesday.

He's had a nice preseason and is ready to go. Andre Drummond, DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard get most of the hype as fantasy centers, but Gasol might be the most efficient player of the group.
Oct 22 - 11:05 PM

Marc Gasol scored 17 points on 11 field goal attempts to go with seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and no turnovers.

He was 5-of-5 from the line and this is the type of line that defines him as a fantasy asset. He doesn't hurt owners anywhere, brings defense and takes good care of the ball. He was a first-round guy a couple seasons ago, but his MCL tear hurt him last year. He's a nice value in the third round for nine-cat leagues.
Oct 20 - 11:34 PM

Marc Gasol had 21 points, 13 rebounds, a steal and three blocks in 29 minutes in Saturday's win over the Hawks.

He hit 8-of-14 shots, and while it was an impressive performance, let's remember the Hawks are going to give up big numbers to most opposing centers this year. Especially as long as Al Horford is out. But Gasol is having a great preseason, looks fully healthy, and should be one of the first centers off the board come draft night.
Oct 11 - 11:13 PM

Marc Gasol played 15 minutes and had seven points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Bucks.

Gasol has had a great training camp and was solid in his limited minutes tonight. He's a quality No. 1 center in all fantasy formats.
Oct 9 - 12:43 AM

Marc Gasol looks great in training camp, and play-by-play man Pete Pranica tweets that he is already in All-Star form.

Pranica may be biased, but he's also watched Gasol in person early in camp. Gasol missed 23 games last season, but he's been durable throughout his career. And given how he looks this early in the game, his draft stock should be on the rise.
Oct 1 - 11:45 PM

The Grizzlies are encouraging Marc Gasol to look for his own shot more often this season.

Gasol is a phenomenal passer for a center, but Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger wants him to be much more aggressive. "He’s got to score the ball. That’s all there is to it," Joerger said. "It doesn’t make you a selfish player. It just means people can’t guard you." Gasol missed 23 games last year after spraining his MCL, but the injury is behind him and he's been very durable throughout his career. He has top-20 upside but his current ADP of 44.0 suggests he's reliably undervalued in fantasy drafts.
Oct 1 - 1:35 PM

Marc Gasol said he's not sweating the fact that he's due to become an unrestricted free agent after the season.

"I think we’ve got to take it day by day," Gasol said. "You know how much I love this team and this hasn’t changed, so we’ll see how we feel at the end of the year and we’ll go from there."After being selected in the first-round of most fantasy drafts last year, the 29-year-old only played 59 games due to a knee injury. If his injury-plagued 2013-14 season scares a few fantasy owners away from Gasol, he'll end up being an early-round steal on draft day.
Sep 30 - 10:34 AM

Marc Gasol went 1-of-7 from the field in Spain's 65-52 loss to France in the FIBA.

Gasol's final stat line for the loss was three points, four rebounds, and one block. He struggled to score, being frustrated by French center Rudy Gobert. He was the team's high-scorer in their game against France on September 3rd, but could not repeat the performance. Gasol had a down 2013-2014 after battling injuries but is he prime bounce-back candidate.
Sep 10 - 6:13 PM

Marc Gasol scored a team-high 17 points vs. France during Wednesday's 88-64 win to go with six boards, two assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

It's been his big brother Pau doing most of the heavy lifting, but Marc got in on the action today. The FIBA tournament seems destined for a USA vs. Spain final with both teams on cruise control so far. Marc Gasol had a down year in 2013-14, so he could be a nice value pick in the late-early rounds of drafts.
Sep 3 - 5:54 PM

Marc Gasol said he wants to stay in Memphis after his contract runs out in the summer of 2015.

"I’ve always said Memphis is my home away from home," Gasol said. "Robert [Pera] knows that. I know that. My teammates know that and that’s all that matters. I live day to day but I don’t see myself anywhere else." After missing just four games in the previous three seasons combined, Gasol missed 23 in 2013-14. He should have a bounce back year in his age-29 season as one of the best fantasy centers in the league.
Jun 18 - 3:31 PM

Marc Gasol has begun working out without a brace on his right knee for the first time since spraining his MCL in November.

"I don’t have to wear a brace anymore," Gasol said. "It’s like the knee injury never happened. It’s really strong and stable." Gasol will play for Spain when they host this summer's FIBA World Cup, and any lingering questions about his health should be answered before the Grizzlies begin training camp in September.
