No Plans to Trade Gasol and Conley- Grizzlies GM

What's next for Memphis?

Marc Gasol Memphis Grizzlies

In the last few days, Marc Gasol's name has been popping out in numerous trade rumors in the NBA especially after he expressed his true feelings about being benched by now-fired Memphis Coach David Fizdale during the 4th quarter of the Grizzlies' game against the Brooklyn Nets- a game which Memphis lost, their 8th straight loss. Right after that game, Fizdale was fired and rumors have been swarming around Gasol's future. In fact, many teams have already expressed interest in acquiring Marc Gasol via a blockbuster trade.

However, Marc Gasol isn't going anywhere. For now. So is Mike Conley. That if you believe General Manager Chris Wallace even after the Grizzlies absorbed their 9th consecutive loss at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs.

The team won't go into rebuilding mode just yet. GM Wallace has made it clear during a press conference that the front office has no intention of trading Marc Gasol and Mike Conley.

What now?

After firing David Fizdale- a decision which according to GM Wallace has something to do with the friction between the coach and Marc Gasol, Wallace also stated that the main reason why Fizdale was let go was for Memphis to salvage what is left of their otherwise, ugly season. So, if Gasol and Conley are to stay put in Memphis, for now, that doesn't mean that the Grizzlies won't make other roster moves especially if they want to extend their streak of playoff appearances.


Mike Conley is expected to be back in 2 to 3 weeks. Marc Gasol is now free of David Fizdale. And yet, the Grizzlies are at 7-13 in the season and are scheduled to face the Spurs. Again. But who knows? Chris Wallace might be right in saying that the very moment the Grizzlies are complete and healthy, their slump will end and they can start climbing up the stacked Western Conference standing. For now, Gasol needs to focus on finding ways to lead his team in getting that much-neded W.
