Adria Gasol – 18-year-old brother of Marc and Pau – to join UCLA next season

Could there be another great 7-footer on the way from the Gasol family? Possibly. Adria Gasol is 6’10” right now but only 18, so he has some more growing to do, and according to Yahoo! Sports, his game needs some work too. 

However, Adria will be joining UCLA this season, per Basket4US.com. It’s unclear what he’ll bring to the team right now, but this has to be a win-win situation for both parties. Adria will be close to his brother Pau in L.A. and he’ll also get a chance to prove himself as a basketball player.

Going by Pau and Marc, this family must have some sort of unique genetic make-up that makes them great basketball players. Adria’s already got the height. Has he got his brother’s intelligence on the court and skill? That’s yet to be seen.

Either way, it’s a fun storyline and something to look out for.
