MADRID, Spain (AP) - The younger brother of Memphis Grizzlies star forward Pau Gasol (pow guh-SAHL') doesn't feel his game is good enough for the NBA just yet, so he's staying in Spain for another year of seasoning.
Marc Gasol is a 22-year-old center who was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 48th pick in this year's draft.
The seven-foot-one Gasol helped Spain win the basketball world title last year and has been chosen to play for the national team at the European Championship in September.
He averaged 10.6 points and 5.5 rebounds in 37 games last season.
