The Memphis Grizzlies may have a trade request coming their way should their struggles this season continue.
Yahoo! Sports insider Michael Lee believes that if the Grizzlies continue to lose, then All-Star big man Marc Gasol will want a way out of town, via trade.
“I think he could resurface [in trade rumors]” Lee said during an appearance on the HoopsHype Podcast.
“As they continue to lose, Marc Gasol isn’t going to be happy. As the deadline gets closer, he may go ahead and tell the organization to go ahead and get something for him.
If you’re the Memphis Grizzlies, I think you really have to look at your future and realize that if you want to go anywhere, moving Gasol is probably the best way to get started. They have to do what’s best for the organization and I think Marc Gasol would be very open to go to a situation where he can win, especially if things have already dried up in Memphis.”
Gasol would be an attractive trade piece and can help Memphis accelerate a much needed rebuild.
