As he said from Memphis to Greek television station OTE TV in a specific question about a possible summer return for Panathinaikos, leaving the NBA is not something that he would like: “This is not something that I think about. I am focused in my team and I hope to succeed and get minutes. It’s obvious that I want to play here, I want to be here, so this is not something on the back of my mind”. EuroHoops.net

But while you may grant they’ve conquered the league, there’s another battle still to be decided. The Spaniards’ own. And even at age 34 and in his 14th NBA season, Pau Gasol is not ready to relinquish the Best in Family designation to the Memphis center. “Ah, no, no, no,” Pau said last week with a smile. “That’s an argument that people can bring up, but I’m playing pretty well myself and I’m happy with where I’m at. “But at some point, maybe he will . . . when I stop playing, maybe he will continue to play. Or I’ll decline more, or not. We’ll see.” Boston Herald

Miller hoped to re-sign in Memphis after the season. “I thought I was going to finish my career there,” Miller said. “I really did. I was happy there. I wanted to play another three, four years, [and I] thought I could get that done in Memphis.” Instead, the Grizzlies pursued and signed Vince Carter in free agency, which essentially took away Miller’s roster spot. But Miller wouldn’t wait long for his next opportunity. Soon enough, his old friend and teammate LeBron James came calling with a new mission. Grantland

A high draft pick may be the Knicks’ best avenue for improvement despite the available salary-cap space this summer and next. Memphis center Marc Gasol is a free agent target in July, but there are strong indications that he will re-sign with the Grizzlies. The following year, OKC’s Kevin Durant is available, but the Knicks will have plenty of competition between the Thunder, Nets, Wizards and Lakers. New York Daily News
