Hamed Haddadi has probably seen his last game in a Memphis jersey, which will be hard enough on us Grizzlies fans, not to mention Darrell Arthur getting beat up more while playing out of position when Marc gets some rest every game. That's the picture if they take their time to sign Gasol.
Sign him now so we can try to keep Hamed. If the salary cap is lowered after Gasol is signed, deal with that then. It can't be as bad as losing him. We can't lose both of our big men. If Haddadi leaves as a free agent, we still need a back up center, and we won't get one as good as Haddadi.
Sign Marc and sign Hamed, or I'll have to go into the "Fire Chris Wallace" t-shirt business.
