The Ringer reported Monday that the Pistons and Kings have inquired about Marc Gasol.

But Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee reported that, as of Tuesday, Gasol is not in the Kings' plans before the trade deadline.

A source subsequently told the Detroit Free Press that a deal to bring Gasol to Detroit is unlikely.

Basketball Insiders labeled the Trail Blazers as the top team to watch in a potential deal for Gasol.

Cool. From your link:

Quote
The Jazz inquired about Conley, according to The Athletic’s Tony Jones, but there are mostly crickets elsewhere. The majority of teams already have capable lead orchestrators, and the teams that do need a point guard may not want to add a player on the wrong side of 30 who will be worth $34.5 million in two years and is only one year removed from having surgery to repair a bone protrusion in his left heel. It’s unclear whether any teams that could use an upgrade at the position—like the Heat, Pacers, Pelicans, Pistons, Magic, Mavericks, and Timberwolves—will make an acceptable offer.

Memphis is now 2-16 in their last 18 games.

Given the fact that any team trading for Anthony Davis is going to get better as a result of having him, if this Memphis pick rolls over, is this the single most valuable asset a team could offer for AD this summer?

-If the 2019 Knicks pick is top 1 that is by far the single most valuable asset, Tatum included.

-If the 2019 Knicks pick is top 2 you could argue that R.J. Barrett is still more valuable than Tatum due to the unknown commodity factor and that he would be cost controlled for longer.

-After that I'd agree that the uncovey'ed Memphis Pick is the next most valuable asset.

-Tatum himself would be next.

-Porzingis is possibly in there some where but he doesn't have much left on his deal and is coming off a lost season.

-After that it depends on how NO values Kuzma, Jaylen, Ingram, Ball, and Kevin Knox.

-Sixers could technically trump all of that if they included Embid or Simmons

-Raptors have not much

-Bucks have not much

-Houston has Capela, but IMO he is worth more to an already established franchise

-GS has a sign and trade Draymond but IMO he is worth more to an already established franchise

- Sac is an interesting Dark Horse since they could offer Bagley and others

For all the bad news with SAC and LAC picks, the reported Gasol return (Valanciunas, a 2nd and filler)  is somewhat light.

At least something to feel good about  :D. TP.

I hope they start Jaren Jackson at center and bring Valanciunas off the bench. I really want to see Jackson play in his best position.

I really liked Jackson as a player coming into the league. After Doncic, he was second on my draft board/list last year. I think he gets lots of run now, especially with Val being as banged up as he has been this year. Val hasn't played since mid December. Jackson is going to get a lot of minutes, maybe 30-31 the rest of the year. Maybe a tick more. He went for 37 minutes last game.

Seeing online that Parsons is rejoining the team after ASB

6th right now and it's hard to imagine them jumping in front of anyone that currently has a better record.

With all of the uncertainty around the way the Celtics are playing right now, let's take a moment to think about how they're 2 games out of the 3rd seed and have this incredibly valuable asset.
