Marc Gasol, Spain
Part of the package the Memphis Grizzlies received in the trade that sent Pau to the Lakers were the draft rights to his brother Marc Gasol, who Los Angeles had drafted the year prior.
Despite the fact no one expected the younger Gasol to even approach the heights his elder sibling did, Marc Gasol ended up becoming quite the player in his own right.
The younger Gasol has spent all 10 years of his career with Memphis. He has made three All-Star games in that span, two All-NBA teams and was the league’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2012-13.
The big Spaniard also leads all players in Grizzlies history in total points, field goals and blocks, and is second in rebounds.
Impressive marks for the player who was expected to be in his big brother’s shadow for the entirety of his career.
