Memphis Grizzlies Receive: Jonas Valanciunas, Norman Powell, Jakob Poeltl and 2019 1st top 20 protected

 

A big three of Derozan, Lowry, and Gasol sounds very good on paper, a veteran all-star in Marc Gasol would make this team a serious threat to anyone in the East. Gasol adds a serious post presence that the Raptors were hoping for in Valanciunas, who has found his name buzzing around the trade block lately.

Cleveland Cavaliers Receive: Marc Gasol

Memphis Grizzlies Receive: Tristan Thompson, Iman Shumpert, 2018 Brooklyn 1st

 

If you thought the Cavilers already had a cake walk to the NBA Finals imagine adding Marc Gasol to this already loaded roster.  A starting lineup of Isaiah Thomas, Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Marc Gasol would be a nightmare for any team come playoffs. The Cavaliers do have the pieces to make this trade happen and doing this would make it even harder for Lebron to leave once his contract expires.

Washington Wizards Receive: Marc Gasol and Dillon Brooks

Memphis Grizzlies Receive: Kelly Oubre Jr, Marcin Gortat and Jason Smith

 

Another impactful player on both ends of the floor would take the Wizards to the next level. Gasol would be a major upgrade from Gortat, but in order to make this happen the Wizards would most likely have to give up a promising young player like Oubre. Gasol is a player that can protect the paint, score with his back to the basket and stretch the floor at an extremely high level.

Marc Gasol - Bucks - The Commercial Appeal.jpg

Milwaukee Bucks Receive: Marc Gasol

Memphis Grizzlies Receive: Jabari Parker, John Henson and Rashad Vaughn

 

The Bucks have already made one big move this season in acquiring Bledsoe from the Suns. Here they would give up their injury prone star in Jabari to get Gasol from the Grizzlies, to become immediate contenders in the East, as if they weren’t already with Giannis. Gasol would add a veteran presence to the Bucks locker room and another go to player down the strecth, which is very important come playoffs.

Marc Gasol - Lakers - Usa Today.jpg

Los Angeles Lakers Receive: Marc Gasol

Dallas Mavericks Receive: Brook Lopez

Memphis Grizzlies Receive: Julius Randle, Seth Curry and Dwight Powell

 

In this three team trade scenario the Los Angeles Lakers would push to add an all-star in Marc Gasol in attempts to lure LeBron from the Cavaliers once his contract does expire. Mark Cuban and the Mavericks in this case will continue their rebuilding process and stay slightly relevant by adding Brook Lopez to their rotation. While the Grizzlies give up their cornerstone of the franchise to go full rebuild, by adding young talents in Randle, Powell and Curry.
