Marc Gasol is staying right at home in Memphis.

A person with direct knowledge of the agreement tells The Associated Press that the All-Star center has agreed to terms on a five-year max deal worth more than $100 million to stay with the Grizzlies. The person spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced.

The 7-foot-1 Spaniard is coming off the best season of his seven-year NBA career, earning a starting spot in the All-Star game. He also became the first Grizzlies’ player voted to the All-NBA first team .

Gasol averaged 17.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.62 blocks this past season.

The contract cannot be signed until Thursday.
