Memphis Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley reiterated that the team will exercise their right to match any offer sheet Marc Gasol might sign with another team.
"Obviously, we want to sit down and try to make a deal with Marc," Heisley said. "I'm committed to keeping him. I'm committed to winning a championship."
Gasol likely will command a starting salary ranging from $10 million and $14 million.
Just like under the rules of the league's last CBA, the Grizzlies can offer Gasol a contract with more years and higher raises than any potential suitor.
