The 7-foot-1 Gasol averaged 15 points, 11.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in helping the Grizzlies upset top-seeded San Antonio to open the playoffs before pushing Oklahoma City to seven games in the semifinals. He finished second in rebounds per game and third with 2.15 blocks per game in the playoffs.
He averaged 11.7 points and 7.0 rebounds while starting 81 games in the regular season.

I mean we already have Rubio and since they are fellow spaniards wouldn't that make his transition good too?
