Per CBS Sports, Memphis is committed to building around Gasol and Conley, with both players locked into their contracts for multiple years.
The Memphis Grizzlies consider All-Star center Marc Gasol “untouchable” and have refused to enter his name in any trade conversations, two sources close to the situation told CBS Sports this week. […]
Typically, the idea that Gasol could be available stems from the perception that Memphis has lost momentum and “needs” a rebuild.
The Grizzlies, in reality, have made the playoffs the past seven years, and their decision to re-sign both Gasol and Mike Conley (who is also considered “untouchable” according to sources) was made with the intention of building around the duo long-term.
