Marc Gasol - EuroBasket 2013 Profile

Team 2012-13: Memphis Grizzlies (USA-NBA)
Career: F.C. Barcelona (Spain-Youth teams, 1998-01); Lausanne High School in Memphis (USA-High School, 2001-03); Akasvayu Girona (Spain-ACB, 2006-08); Memphis Grizzlies (USA-NBA, 2008-13)

With his brother Pau Gasol and fellow NBA big man Serge Ibaka both out, Marc Gasol will have to shoulder the load for a Spanish team that still has high aspirations at EuroBasket 2013. The Memphis Grizzlies big man has taken his place among the elite centers in the NBA. Gasol features all the tools to be a leader of a great team. The 28-year-old has great low post moves and tremendous passing ability for a big man. He can also step out and hit a mid-range jumper and makes opponents pay for fouling him with good free shooting. Defensively, all one needs to know is that Gasol won the 2013 NBA Defensive Player of the Year award. Gasol and the Grizzlies advanced to the NBA Western Conference finals for the first time this season but lost to the San Antonio Spurs in four games. Gasol will be looking to put a disappointing end to a strong season behind him.
