BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Barcelona says Pau and Marc Gasol will practice with the Spanish basketball club during the NBA lockout.

Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol will start practice on Tuesday, with his older brother Pau set to join on Thursday.

Barcelona says the Gasols can practice with their former club “while the NBA lockout lasts.”

The Los Angeles LakersPau Gasol told Catalan radio RAC1 that “Barca would be my first option to consider” playing for if the NBA season is canceled.

Dallas Mavericks forward Rudy Fernandez signed a contract last month with Real Madrid to play basketball until the end of the lockout.
