Grizzlies, Hornets Working Towards Marc Gasol Trade

Published

on

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.

With the loss of Kemba Walker and now with Kaminsky heading out the door, it seems to be a sinking ship in Charlotte.

Kaminsky wasn’t a big part of head coach James Borrego’s rotation, losing minutes as the season wore on, but he is expected to draw significant interest one he hits free agency.

Kaminsky averaged 8.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists last season for the Hornets.

If the Charlotte Hornets are looking to get a deal done with pending free agent point guard Kemba Walker, they will have to meet his demands.

The Hornets have the financial advantage over all other teams, as they are the only team that can offer Walker at five-year deal worth $221 million, but may have to add something else to their offer to get a deal done.

According to the Charlotte Observer’s Rick Bonnell, Walker, 29, wants a full-guaranteed contract, including the fifth year in the deal.

If Walker makes it to free agency he will have a host of suitors, including the Dallas Mavericks, Boston Celtics, New York Knicks, and Los Angeles Lakers, among others.
