Memphis retired the No. 33 jersey worn by Marc Gasol. The team conducted a jersey retirement ceremony after the NBA game against the Sixers.

The Spanish center played 11 seasons for the Grizzlies wearing this number.

Gasol became the second player in Memphis history to receive this honor. In 2021, Zach Randolph's No. 50 jersey was also retired.

Gasol participated in three NBA All-Star Games and was awarded the NBA Defensive Player of the Year while playing for Memphis from 2008 to 2019.

The 39-year-old Gasol retired in January. He remains the Grizzlies' all-time leader in minutes played (25,917), games started (762), points scored (4,341), free throws made (2,701), rebounds (5,952), and blocks (1,135).
