Injury = Opportunity: Marc Gasol

Gasol's injured for the majority of the season (out indefinitely) and the Grizz could do one of two things:

  • Play it safe & smart and just let the season play out and get worse this year increasing the value of their own pick in this loaded draft...
  • The 7-6 Grizz could find a way to replace Gasol and make a run this year with Conley&ZBO.
I think an injured Gasol would fit perfectly on the future Celtics team and a current year's 'tanking' strategy. He would be the perfect Celtic center to pair with Rondo for the next few years and Sully would be a perfect PF to play alongside him. The biggest selling points are his high BBIQ and his DPOY status. Both he and Sully are excellent passers and can stretch the floor. So there are two distinct ways to make this happen:

Trade 1:

BOS: Marc Gasol

MEM: Kris Humphries, Vitor Favarani

(+/-): Crawford, 2015 Clippers pick, other future picks?

The selling point here is that Vitor & Kris help replace Marc's production. Crawford's playing out of his mind and the Grizz could use that scoring SG off the bench. Maybe the Clips pick gets it done, maybe it has to be the Nets 2016.

Trade 2:

BOS: Marc Gasol, Tayshon Prince

MEM: Jeff Green, Kris Humphires

(+/-) Vitor Favarani, Crawford

The enticement here would be to upgrade Prince with Green. A front-line of Conley, Allen, Green, ZBO & Koufous could be effective. Hump is still included as expiring salary. Maybe Vitor or Crawford is thrown in to get it done. (Think of this as the reverse Perkins deal :-D )

Be respectful and keep it clean. Thanks.
