The Sacramento Kings and the Memphis Grizzlies are completing a trade that will send guard Garrett Temple to Memphis for guard Ben McLemore, forward Deyonta Davis, cash, and a 2021 second round draft pick, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Temple, 32, averaged 8.4 points in 25 minutes a game for the Kings last season and will provide Memphis with a veteran wing moving forward.

Additionally, the deal clears an additional an additional $1 million in salary cap space for the Kings, who now have $20.5 million.

McLemore returns to the Kings, where he was the seventh overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft.

Davis, 21, has struggled to crack the rotation in Memphis.

The teams are setting up a trade call with the league office on Tuesday to make the deal official.

Grizzlies’ Justin Holiday Now Feeling Comfortable with New Team

Memphis Grizzlies wing Justin Holiday has overcome some initial struggles with his new team following a trade from the Chicago Bulls back in January, and is feeling more comfortable.

Holiday has showed it on the court, with an improved play of late, and has become a key component of the Grizzlies’ rotation.

“You want to come in and do well and help the team,” Holiday said, according to Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic.

“That was the biggest thing for me, and feeling like you’re being a burden at times, which, it is what it is, but that was the hardest thing for me. Not playing at the level I normally do. But understanding that it comes with being traded. I just knew it was going to take time so it was just being patient and allowing myself to understand what we want to do here and allow myself to be helped.”

Holiday’s number in February tell the story, as he is averaging 12.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game this month.

“If I know the ins and outs of everyone’s position, where they’re supposed to be, that’s the player I am,” Holiday said. “I know everybody’s position in a play. So now I’m getting to the point where I know that and now I’m comfortable. If I know everything that’s going on, I’m good.”

Grizzlies, Hornets Working Towards Marc Gasol Trade

There is growing chatter about a potential trade that would send Memphis Grizzlies big man Marc Gasol to the Charlotte Hornets ahead of tomorrow’s NBA trade deadline.

According to the Sporting News’ Sean Deveney, there is growing skepticism that the two teams can work out a trade despite Gasol being held out of Tuesday’s game, leading many to believe that a trade was being finalized.

Per the report:

“But league sources told Sporting News that the Hornets and Grizzlies do not have an agreement in place, and that there is increasing skepticism on both sides that a trade can be brought to bear ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. The Hornets have had interest in Gasol for some time, but a deal has not progressed.”

Gasol and teammate Mike Conley will almost certainly be moved by the deadline, but Gasol to the Hornets doesn’t seem like such a sure thing.
