NBA Rumors: Could Pau Gasol come off the bench for Memphis Grizzlies?


The Memphis Grizzlies could lose veteran power forward Zach Randolph in the offseason.

Many believe that if the Grizzlies cannot pay enough to keep Randolph, they could make at run at the brother of their starting center, Marc Gasol, Pau Gasol. The Los Angeles Lakers’ big man is set to become a free agent this center.

Marc Gasol wants Randolph to remain with the team, but doesn’t know if there is enough room for both Randolph and his brother.

“Pau is old enough and he is going to decide what is best for him. We will play together this summer if everything goes well, but next season you never know. I have one of the best teammates in Zach (Randolph), we know each other and we can play together… I have no idea how Pau would feel about coming off the bench”, Marc Gasol told Marca.com as translated by Hoops Hype

Pau Gasol averaged 17.4 points, 9.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.5 blocks per game in 60 games for the Lakers this season.
