Lakers Free Agency: Marc Gasol has 'no interest' in signing with the Lakers, according to report

Why has the younger Gasol brother ruled out the Lakers as a free agent destination? In the wake of the Los Angeles Lakers drafting D'Angelo Russell out of Ohio State with the second overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft,  Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak has said the Lakers will "focus" on "getting a big or two" in free agency this summer with the franchise's max-level cap room. So it is meaningful that Grizzlies center Marc Gasol, perhaps the best big man on the market and the younger brother of two-time NBA champion with the Lakers Pau Gasol, has "no interest" in signing with the...

If I Were Memphis Grizzlies GM: Use the MLE to sign Matt Barnes and Kyle O'Quinn

Also, keep Marc Gasol. The Memphis Grizzlies' offseason to-do list isn't lengthy, but they'll have to be calculating to check every box off with their limited cap flexibility. Priority one this summer will be retaining Marc Gasol, who has every reason to come back to the Grizzlies BUT ALSO THE SPURS EXIST. The team also has to deal with the likely departure of back-up center Kosta Koufos, who did his job too well and will chase more money and a starting position elsewhere. Finally, as always, the team will want more three-point shooting after finishing second-last in both makes and attempts...

Memphis Grizzlies 2014-2015 Player Reviews: Marc Gasol

Marc made good on that promise. It's something that Grizzlies fans have begged and pleaded for Marc Gasol to do for years. Everyone knows he's capable of doing it. I mean, all you have to do is watch the guy shoot one 17-foot jumper with ease or quickly spin baseline and drop in a 5-foot floater. Or, my personal favorite, just watch him wheel in a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar-esque sky hook that even Manute Bol doesn't have the slightest chance of getting a finger tip on. It's never been a question of skill with Marc. The guy is arguably the most skilled center in the league. Now, admittedly, he's...
