Grizzlies, Hornets in Serious Talks About Marc Gasol Trade

"Knowing what's possible after tonight, it's going to be hard for a lot of us, especially myself with all the years we've played together", teammate Mike Conley told reporters before Tuesday's game. In exchange, Toronto would send the duo of Kyle Lowry and Jonas Valanciunas to Memphis, although that now seems like it could be a bit up in the air due to a potential Gasol trade to Charlotte.

Kyle Lowry appears to be one of those players, but the Raptors starting point guard is taking everything in stride. Memphis can trade him anywhere it pleases, and surely the organization will take the best offer on the table regardless of Conley's preferences.

Lowry was reportedly upset after the Raptors traded away DeMar DeRozan for Kawhi Leonard during the offseason.

According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst and the New York Times' Marc Stein, Conley has indicated that he does not want to get traded to the Jazz. "If they do something that will be their feeling to whatever the organization thinks is best for them".

"I haven't heard anything", Lowry said of possibly being moved.

Conley then missed a three-pointer, but Minnesota's Josh Okogie was called for a loose-ball foul on Justin Holiday who converted two free-throws to seal the win.

Conley scored 25 points and handed out 9 assists for Memphis and Jaren Jackson added 23 in the Grizzlies' second straight win, 108-106.

"Indications from Toronto and Pacers side that Grizzlies' price is prohibitively high", Amick reported. He also said that it's more likely that Marc Gasol is moved at the deadline than Conley. He's a career 37-percent shooter from 3-point range, but is connecting at just 32.6 percent in 2018-19.

Over the years, the NBA's trade deadline has been one of the more entertaining times of the season.
