Woj: Marc back to Memphis 

Post#1 » by VCfor3 » Sat Sep 11, 2021 2:22 am

Per RealGM Wiretap:
The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to trade Marc Gasol, a 2024 second round pick and cash to the Memphis Grizzlies for the draft rights to Wang Zhelin.

The deal saves the Lakers $10 million in salary and luxury tax expenditures.

Gasol and the Grizzlies will work on a buyout and release to allow him to remain in Spain. Gasol had a $2.7 million deal for the 21-22 season.

The Grizzlies will have to release a player in order to complete this trade and they already have a deal with the Boston Celtics queued up for September 15th.

Great to see Marc retire as a Grizzly. I could see him play a couple years in Spain with his brother before ultimately retiring from basketball. And then there was one still playing from the Core Four.

(Also nice to get a 2nd round pick the way we burn through them ha)

Return to Memphis Grizzlies
