MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -The Memphis Grizzlies signed Spanish center Marc Gasol on Wednesday, finishing off the last piece of a trade that sent his older brother, All-Star Pau, to the Los Angeles Lakers in February.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Grizzlies obtained the draft rights to the younger Gasol in the trade that also gave them guard Jarvis Crittenton, forward Kwame Brown, guard Aaron McKie, cash and two first-round draft picks. Memphis used the No. 28 pick last month in a deal that landed Darrell Arthur.
The Lakers had drafted the 7-foot-1 Gasol with the 48th pick overall in 2007. Gasol played two seasons of high school basketball in Memphis while his older brother, Pau, became the Grizzlies' career leading scorer. Marc spent the past five seasons in the Spanish ACB League and was the MVP last season.
