Southwest Notes: Gasol, Simmons, Ginobili, Wright

The Spurs tried to lure Marc Gasol away from Memphis, but he was committed to the Grizzlies, tweets Dan McCarney of The San Antonio Express-News. Once GM R.C. Buford realized that, he turned his full attention to LaMarcus Aldridge.

There’s more from the Southwest Division:

  • Jonathon Simmons‘ deal with the Spurs is fully guaranteed for next season, according to Jeff McDonald of The San Antonio Express-News (Twitter link). On Friday, Simmons signed a two-year contract for the minimum with a team option for the second season. Simmons was on Brooklyn’s bus headed to a summer league game when his agent told him of the Spurs’ offer (Twitter link).
  • In a procedural move, the Spurs renounced their rights to free agent Manu Ginobili, tweets Eric Pincus of The Los Angeles Times. San Antonio will re-sign Ginobili with its $2.814MM room exception, rather than Bird Rights.
  • “Love at first sight” is how Brandan Wright described his reaction to being pursued by the Grizzlies, writes Ronald Tillery of The Commercial Appeal. The free agent signed a three-year deal with the team worth about $17.1MM“Even though we’ve had a strong frontcourt, we haven’t had a great deal of athleticism and length,” said GM Chris Wallace. “He’s a shot blocker and can score on lob passes. He provides defense, athleticism and experience.”
  • The Mavericks are hoping to sign another center, tweets Earl K. Sneed of “It’d be nice to have someone that can play above the rim,” said owner Mark Cuban.

    who’s still available that fits what the mavs are looking for?

    • Chuck Myron

      It’s a long shot, but you wonder if they would take a shot at Larry Sanders. They were linked to him this spring. Otherwise, the list of available centers (link below) is pretty slim. Hasheem Thabeet and Jeremy Tyler might be the best bets, unless they go with someone who doesn’t have NBA experience.

        they seem pretty desperate maybe they will give larry sanders a chance

      • Z.....

        I thought Larry Sanders doesnt want to play basketball? If he does, you obviously give him a chance. He would be perfect for what they need
