Grizzlies Re-sign Marc Gasol, Keep 2010-11 Core Intact

Michael Heisley and Chris Wallace made no secret that keeping Marc Gasol in a Memphis uniform was the most important thing that needed to get done before the season started.

Well, Gasol broke the news via twitter this evening that he has reached a tentative agreement with the Grizzlies that will keep the emerging center in Memphis via a four-year, max contract offer.

Here’s Gasol’s (@marcgasol) tweet:

I’m proud to say that we have reached a tentative agreement with my team @memgrizz , can’t wait to get on the court with all my teammates!

This was crucial for the Grizzlies, as Gasol was rated as the No. 1 free agent available this offseason by SBNation. After signing Josh Selby and Jeremy Pargo earlier this week to add depth, it now remains to be seen what the franchise will do to further bolster its frontcourt depth.

Memphis has submitted a $2 million qualifying offer to Haddadi, but there are issues with him getting back into the country – issues which stem from an off-the-court domestic incident during last season.
