One whisper making the rounds: Marc Gasol can become a free agent at season's and, amid a growing belief around the league that he will indeed exercise that option, Memphis could be moved to explore trading Gasol now rather than face the threat of losing him without compensation

Hard to say if he'd opt out of the $25.5M player option. Unless he's fed up with Grizzles and gets a longer deal elsewhere to make up the difference in the long run.

As long as he's cool with JB, he'll stay. He seems more loyal than the typical star. If he leaves there must be some serious drama behind the scenes.

From a Grizz stand point I would look to move and rebuild. He isnt the same player, Conley is injury prone. Start the rebuild and get younger so you can build with Jackson.

I love JV but if a straight up swap could be done for Gasol then Id do it 10 times out of 10. Even if he opts out.

JV and Powell for Marc.

they should probably trade him and conley and let some of their younger guys get more burn. question is how hard is it to even trade conley's contract.

I don't think he can make that money elsewhere. If he leaves it's more likely about culture.
