The Boston Celtics remain stockpiled with assets and figure to be the favorite to make a deal for Memphis' long-time big man. Gasol turns 33 in January. He would likely opt into his Player Option and become a free agent in July, 2020.

With the Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets making significant leaps this offseason, the Grizzlies could find themselves out of the playoffs next year.

Why the Grizzlies might be interested, Mannix writes, is because the Celtics have a plethora players and picks to offer Memphis as a "ready made rebuilding package".

The Grizzlies did let Zach Randolph walk away and they still have some decisions to make with Tony Allen and JaMychal Green. In that case, the Grizzlies might consider trading Marc Gasol if they get a good deal with the Celtics. Or are talks dormant because the teams already found an agreeable framework, and the Celtics are just canvassing to see whether they can do better elsewhere before pulling the trigger? "Figuring the Hayward/Brown/Tatum mix could be the most challenging". The Celtics were rather stingy in their recent trade talks for Paul George and Jimmy Butler. But in acquiring Hayward, the Celtics add a multi-positional wing player who has elite scoring talent, evident by him being named an All-Star last season while averaging career highs scoring (21.9) and rebounding (5.4).

Isaiah Thomas can set the world ablaze with one emoji.

"That's Hayward, an efficient scorer (47.1 percent) who knocked down almost 40 percent of his threes last season", wrote Mannix. Apparently, some of the league executives have recognized Gasol as a potential target for the Celtics.
