    We don't leak, but Memphis does, and I'm guessing this is spin. Why would Memphis call us asking for Kyle and JV? They are being offered Rubio and an actual pick from Utah.
    Its probably more like Memphis called Masai and asked “what would you offer for Conley and Gasol?”, Masai offered JV and Kyle, Memphis said no, made a counter offer and moved on.

    Grange is definitely being used here; Memphis calls and goes we got so and so on the market, what do you offer, we go KL JV, they go lol no!

    Both sides get info on what theirs is worth.

    I wonder how bad Lowry's health is.

    Conley and Gasol are a risk (both have injury issues) but I think Conley is one of the best floor generals in the NBA and could probably get things humming with Kawhi.

    Gasol plays well when he's not miserable and losing.

    Anyways, this is wild stuff. I'll just sit back and see how it plays out.

    I'm amazed at the trade buzz this year. It's more than the hockey trade buzz. Remember when nba deadline used to mean Luke ridnour for a 2nd?
    It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

    Hockey trade deadline is terrible. 9 dudes in suits on set talking about nothing because nothing ever happens.

    To be fair.... we'd be fleecing Memphis with that trade.
    Gasol is a player, period.
    Lowry is a puke.

    What do you expect? there's a lot of JV fanboys here. Just like there's a lot Kyle "is better than Kyrie"Lowry fanboys.
    Fanboy? You troll a team forum of a team you dont even like. I dont think theres a name for that because your the first. Furyboy? Probably dont take your eyes off lowry every minute every game. Pathetic really. Ill bet youd rather see lowry lose a championship winning shot than the raptors winning the championship. Get a life.

    Masai is trying to salvage the season at this point if this is true. Doesn't raise our ceiling.

    Tsn has gotten a hold of the Lowry rumor and phrased it "to this blockbuster will have Raptors fans excited" and predictably the Facebook fans are all begging for Lowry to be on the first bus out.

    Me thinks the Toronto media will be bringing this up to Kyle and has a chance of getting ugly..

    I feel like if your truly shopping lowry you have to get rid of him before the deadline. The fact this leaked is baaaaaaad news. what do u think kyles trust of masai is right now? If masai tells him its B.S grizz vaule shopping, does kyle even believe him? can you salvage the rest of the season if kyle thinks he's not wanted/needed? If the relastonship is not salvageable, i fell like you gotta get him off the team. But what can you even get for lowry with out taking away our chances of making the finals? The grizz might have just fucked us....

    Gasol can’t do any of those things effectively any more. His contract doesn’t fit the timeline, and he’s seriously injury prone now. If anything I can understand the Conley vs Lowry comparison but I see the risk outweighing the reward. Kyle is still really good, he just can’t really score very well anymore.
    He can't do any of those things effectively. Ok.

    - Among starting centers he's in the top 10 in DRPM still and averages over a block and steal per game. Probably the highest IQ defender in terms of positioning at center this side of Gobert.

    - He's the best passing center in the league after Jokic.

    - Not sure you watch the Grizzlies if you really don't think he does this

    As for the injuries, he's missed one game this year and played 72+ the last 2 seasons. He fits the timeline just fine. This is the last guaranteed year of his deal with a PO for 2019-20 at $25M.

    Conley is objectively far better than Kyle this season.

    Masai probably can't tell if Lowry is deliberately sabotaging chemistry with Kawhi or if he's done. And he doesn't have the luxury of time figure out if Lowry's playing games.

    You sound really mad lol. Relax. Are you one of the Lowry fanboys?

    And how am i trolling? Critizing a player for his POOR play is not allowed in a sports FORUM? FOH.

    But what about his impact stats?! On-off? Plus/minus? Grit? Determination?

    Lowry does more to make his team win than Kyrie!

    You seriously going with this take man. They have doctors that can tell those things. You think he's stretching out his back for shit and giggles on a bench?
