Gasol Stays In Memphis

It looks like the Houston Rockets were caught sleeping. While people thought the Rockets may offer Marc Gasol an offer sheet he decided to resign with the Memphis Grizzlies. The news is pretty solid too as Gasol tweeted it himself.

@MarcGasol: I’m proud to say that we have reached a tentative agreement with my team @memgrizz , can’t wait to get on the court with all my teammates!

It’s great news for the Grizzlies as they look to become a Western Conference power. They finished eight in the conference last season and are looking to improve on that in 2011-12. Having a center with the talents like Gasol will definitely help.

His career averages after three seasons is 12.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game. I’d expect his numbers to increase with the experience.
