Had this in yesterday's look around the NBA: Marc Gasol is 18th in the NBA in total win shares since the 2011-12 season, Kyle Lowry ranks ninth, Kawhi Leonard 14th, Serge Ibaka 23rd. Plus Siakam is 16th this season. That's not bad.
Impressive Siakam and Anunoby, of course, but when you consider Jeremy Lin didn’t meet his teammates until about 5 p.m. and that Marc Gasol barely knows all of their names. Also, no Kawhi Leonard or Fred VanVleet.
For first time, Memphis will begin listening to trade offers on franchise stars Marc Gasol and Mike Conley, league sources tell ESPN. Memphis has reached a crossroads and is preparing to weigh deals involving one or both of its cornerstone veterans. Story soon on ESPN.
