Marc gasol is a free agent this summer and pretty much every team who has enough cap room will be after him. Larry H. Russell broke some news that Rajon Rondo went to upper management that he wants them to get Marc. Wallace put a definitive answer out there “We have every intention of re-signing Marc Gasol.

Building a team the way they have the Grizzlies have been one of the most competitive teams in the league the last few years. “Other than the Spurs series two years ago where we were unfortunately swept the other times when we’ve been knocked out of the playoffs it was in the seventh game ... Despite the fact that you may not see us frequently on National television, we like to think we have a pretty good team here and a team that will be a challenger in the Western Conference.” CLNS Radio
