Marc Gasol was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2007 NBA Draft. However, the Spaniard didn't make his NBA debut until the 2008-09 season. Moreover, he wasn't with the Lakers either, as Los Angeles traded Gasol to the Memphis Grizzlies in January of 2008 for none other than his brother, Pau Gasol.
In July of 2008, Marc signed a three-year, $9.8 million rookie contract with the Grizzlies. He made $3,093,333 during his rookie season while averaging 11.9 points and 7.4 rebounds. He made the All-Rookie team as well.
In his second year in the NBA, Marc Gasol put up 14.6 points and 9.3 boards per game. He earned $3,240,000 and, suddenly, the Grizzlies had another Gasol leading the franchise.
Pau, of course, was a star for Memphis before getting traded to the Lakers.
Marc made $3,480,000 during his third season. He averaged 11.7 points and 7.0 rebounds and was all set to enter restricted free agency. However, the 2011-12 season was the lockout year, so Gasol couldn't sign his contract until December of 2011. He wound up agreeing to a four-year, $57.5 million contract with the Grizzlies before the start of the 2011-12 campaign.
Gasol averaged 14.6 points and 8.9 rebounds in the lockout year and made his first All-Star team. He also earned $10,400,790.
In 2012-13, Marc Gasol won the Defensive Player of the Year Award. He made $13,891,359 that year and finished the regular season with averages of 14.1 points, 7.8 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.7 blocks. The Grizzlies won 56 games and got all the way to the Western Conference Finals, where they got swept by Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs.
After his 2011 extension ended with the Grizzlies, Gasol signed a five-year, $113.2 million contract with Memphis in the summer of 2015. He made $19,689,000 during the 2015-16 season while averaging 16.6 points and 7.0 boards.
Marc then earned $21,165,675 in 2016-17 and $22,642,350 in 2017-18, which wound up being his last full season with the Grizzlies.
During the 2018-19 season, Marc Gasol was traded from Memphis to the Toronto Raptors. He made $15,534,287 from the Grizzlies and $8,584,738 from the Raptors.
Toronto won the 2019 championship over the Golden State Warriors in six games, so the trade worked out great for Gasol even though he never wanted to leave Memphis.
After winning the title, Marc Gasol exercised his $25,595,700 player option for the 2019-20 season. He was averaging 7.6 points and 6.3 rebounds for the Raptors before games were suspended due to COVID-19.
Gasol becomes an unrestricted free agent whenever the 2020 offseason period begins. He's made $178,007,443 through NBA contracts in his career, per Spotrac.
