Rumor: Marc Gasol Signs with Memphis

NBA.com is reporting, according to SI.com, that Marc Gasol signed a contract today with the Memphis Grizzlies.

Gasol, the Spanish league MVP, will be the 3rd potential rookie starter for the Grizzlies although he will face stiff competition from returning starter Darko Milicic. Milicic himself has a rumor surrounding recent Grizzlies moves. The rumor is that Milicic found out about the draft night trade while watching a movie with Marco Jaric who was involved in the trade. Wouldn't that be coincidental.

The strange part of this rumor is that SI.com's article doesn't say that Gasol has signed. The article only claims that an agreement has been reached in principle. As yet there has been no confirmation from the Grizzlies but 3 Shades of Blue plan on covering these rumors in detail as soon as they are officially confirmed.
