The Memphis Grizzlies are ready to listening offers to both Marc Gasol and Mike Conley.

Marc Gasol could become free agent from July 1, 2019 if he opts out of his contract while Mike Conley has $67 million left till 2021.

Per ESPN, The Grizzlies could decide to keep one or both players if no deals meet the threshold of a desired return, but the organization is motivated to begin reshaping the roster around its 2018 first-round pick, forward Jaren Jackson, league sources said.

The Grizzlies will be pursuing typical deal packages in dealing veteran stars, including some combination of young talent, draft picks and salary-cap relief, sources said. The advanced age of Gasol (33) and substantial money owed Conley (likely $67 million through 2021) could make it difficult for Memphis to get substantial trade packages in return.
