Gasol said Tuesday he already knew he wasn’t going anywhere else. The 7-foot-1 Spaniard spoke Tuesday at a news conference that was much more a celebration with fans packing the lobby of the Grizzlies’ arena a day after Gasol signed his five-year contract. Although the Grizzlies didn’t release terms of the deal, The Associated Press previously reported Gasol agreed to a five-year maximum contract worth more than $100 million.
