Center Marc Gasol agreed to terms tonight on a four-year, nearly $58 million contract with the team, effectively taking the restricted free agent off the market.

Gasol is expected in town Tuesday to take a physical. He should join his teammates for practice no later than Wednesday.

The 7-footer will be paid $12.9 million in the first year of the deal. He'll receive 7.5-percent raises. Memphis paid Gasol the most he could receive as a free agent.

Other teams could only pay Gasol a maximum of $55 million over four years with 4.5-percent increases.
