Conley, Gasol confirm they're on Grizzlies' trading block

Chandler Parsons Marc Gasol Mike Conley Grizzlies 'It's Part of the Business': Mike Conley and Marc Gasol Address Trade Talks

Although Randle has an opt-out, if Memphis thinks it can re-sign him as a piece, he wouldn't be an terrible pickup, and adding the pick is really the key here. Gasol declined to share details of his conversations with the Grizzlies owner, saying he considers those private.

"My relationship with the Grizzlies might change, but my relationship with Memphis won't", said Gasol, according to David Cobb of The Commercial Appeal.

Conley, 31, and Gasol, 33, both have spent their entire National Basketball Association careers in Memphis and previously were unavailable in trade scenarios. ESPN reported the second-year guard had issues with coach Rick Carlisle's style and would welcome a trade from Dallas.

Asked if he was surprised by the reports, Gasol replied: "Uh".

Conley and Gasol rank No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in games played for Memphis (Conley is at 764, Gasol 762). Involving Conley is the biggest indication that Memphis is prepared to start rebuilding a franchise whose seven-season playoff streak ended with its last appearance in 2017, a six-game loss to San Antonio in the first round. Memphis is all I know. They head into Wednesday night's game having lost 12 of 13.

"I don't understand why Mike is in those talks either", Gasol said. With that said, he also mentions that the front office could keep one or both players if the offers aren't enough to move the needle. Conley can still play and would not be a nice addition for a contender, but the asking price figures to be a bit too high, although it is possible that maybe someone could strike a deal to land him. Conley also said there was no indication in his talk with the owner that a trade will happen by the league's February 7 deadline.

"It's where we're at, I guess".

"Does it feel like it's up to me right now?" I'm not anxious right now.

While the Celtics could do a variety of things at the trade deadline, we know Danny Ainge is willing and capable of swinging for the fences if the opportunity presents itself. Robert [Pera] called me yesterday just to make me aware that they were going to go about doing this.

It has long too been speculated that point guard Mike Conley, now of the Memphis Grizzlies, should be an option - an option that I have personally and consistently knocked down based on both age and salary.

The original report came from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Tuesday, as he cited the Grizzlies would listen to offers for the two players. He is 31, though, and still owed $67 million over two years after this season.

"If you're getting Gasol or Conley, you're talking about changing your whole team, and probably beyond this year".
