Marc Gasol puts up triple-double

Marc Gasol puts up triple-double

The advanced age of Gasol (33) and substantial money owed Conley (likely $67 million through 2021) could make it hard for Memphis to get substantial trade packages in return. It will be interesting to see if either Gasol or Conley are still on the team in two years. Trade speculation around Marc Gasol was just another issue for the 33-year-old Spaniard center on Wednesday.

That's a weird comment from Gasol, who might not be long for Memphis himself.

"Does it feel like it's up to me right now?"

Marc Gasol #33 of the Memphis Grizzlie and Mike Conley #11 of the Memphis Grizzlies prior to the game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on November 18, 2018 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Memphis Grizzlies may be ready to start rebuilding now that they would listen to trade offers for the NBA's longest-tenured teammates.

"When I signed back a couple years ago, that's a thought that goes through your head that, 'man, I could play in the same place for 14 or 15 years, '" said Conley.

According to the Athletic, the Jazz have inquired about Mike Conley but an offer has yet to be made. February 7 - is looming and Memphis is losing ground in the Western Conference playoff chase after an optimistic start to 2018-19. A lot can happen in a few weeks.

"That won't change. It won't change to me", (Gasol) said. Moving Gasol would open up more playing time for Jackson, a two-way player who averages 13.5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 25.7 minutes per game. He's also a free agent after this season, so the Grizzlies would get him off the books in a matter of months. Conley is making $32.5 million next season and has a $34.5 million player option for the following season. As highlighted earlier, Conley's contract ends after the 2020-2021 season; Wall is locked in until after the 2022-2023 season, and at a higher price.

Conley, 31, is the franchise's all-time leader in games, assists, 3-point field goals and steals. Reports have now come out that they have inquired about Mike Conley of the Memphis Grizzlies, a move that makes plenty of sense.

This could be an Andrew Wiggins, but unless the Grizzlies think they can take Wiggins and put through some rigorous training program to help him reach his full potential - not to mention justify his max contract - I wouldn't count on it.
