Bill Simmons Suggests the Blazers Trade CJ McCollum for Markelle Fultz

Would Portland take a talent reboot and young assets for an established star? Bill Simmons of The Ringer became a fount of NBA Trade suggestions today in an article titled “The NBA Trades That Need to Happen”. A couple of his speculative deals center around the Portland Trail Blazers, who are drifting near a .500 record so far in the 2017-18 NBA Season, trying to compensate for an imbalanced roster. He opened by suggesting the Blazers move Jusuf Nurkic and ancillary assets for Memphis Grizzlies Center Marc Gasol. Then he got more audacious, musing on a potential deal between the Blazers...

Would Jusuf Nurkic and Evan Turner for Marc Gasol Make Sense?

Would Jusuf Nurkic and Evan Turner for Marc Gasol Make Sense?

The Grizzlies may or may not be shopping Gasol in a trade. Should the Blazers pursue him? Grant Hughes of Bleacher Report thinks so. When Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol reportedly expressed unhappiness this season, the Grizzlies responded by firing head coach David Fizdale. Speculation continues that the All-Star and former Defensive Player of the Year remains on the market despite the coaching change. Gasol’s salary for the next two seasons—$22.64 million and $24.11 million, respectively—all but mandates a large contract coming back to Memphis in order for a trade to be...

Would the Blazers trade Jusuf Nurkic for Marc Gasol?

To say the Memphis Grizzlies have not had the season they were expecting may be an understatement. They fired their head coach before the season even hit December and have lost nine straight games. Their star guard Mike Conley has been out since November 14th with an Achilles injury. The Grizzlies don’t have much promise […] Would the Blazers trade Jusuf Nurkic for Marc Gasol? - Rip City Project - Rip City Project - A Portland Trailblazers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Marc Gasol, David Fizdale had barely spoken to each other in 10 months

Memphis Grizzlies star big man Marc Gasol and former head coach David Fizdale certainly did not get along well, according to recent reports. Marc Gasol and David Fizdale had little-to-no communication for the better part of the past 10 months, per @sam_amick in this weeks Jumping to Conclusions. https://t.co/EDVwjtOz0f pic.twitter.com/MsWXUwoLGY — USA TODAY NBA (@usatodaynba) November 29, 2017 While we already knew that the two men did not speak to each other after the loss on Sunday night before Fizdale was fired, this may have been a sign of something much bigger.

Grizzlies may still trade Marc Gasol after firing David Fizdale

Grizzlies may still trade Marc Gasol after firing David Fizdale

The Memphis Grizzlies fired head coach David Fizdale on Monday night after an eight-game losing streak. Marc Gasol could be the next to go. Gasol, 32, has spent his entire NBA career with the Grizzlies. Many believe he and Fizdale did not see eye to eye while in Memphis. But reports currently indicate that the star player hadn’t made an ultimatum about Fizdale. League sources say there was NOT any sort of him or me mandate from Marc Gasol to Grizzlies management before David Fizdales dismissal — Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) November 28, 2017 This means it’s still possible the front...

Around the League at the Quarter Pole

Around the League at the Quarter Pole

Some random NBA thoughts as we are about a quarter of the way through the season. We’re about a quarter of the way through the season, and it seems like time to take a look at what’s happening around the NBA. The big news that just happened is the Grizzlies fired David Fizdale as head coach yesterday. The Grizz are in the midst of an eight game losing streak, and have fallen to 7-12 on the season, but this appears to be a result of the poor relationship between Fizdale and Marc Gasol. It happens, obviously, but I hope (and expect) Fiz to get another opportunity at some point. I...

Top potential destinations for Marc Gasol if Grizzlies pursue trade

Top potential destinations for Marc Gasol if Grizzlies pursue trade

The Memphis Grizzlies are currently on a massive losing streak and franchise star Marc Gasol appears to be upset with coach David Fizdale. Gasol, 32, said in August that he is ambitious to play for a great franchise and would have to “revisit things” in Memphis if the team does not keep growing. After these comments, it became worth monitoring his demeanor about the team. As noted by Ronald Tillery of the USA TODAY Network, however, Gasol is currently unhappy with a recent decision by his coach (via Commercial Appeal): “Gasol is angry and confused about not playing in the fourth...
