The Memphis Grizzlies are gauging the value of guard Ben McLemore on the trade market, league sources told Basketball Insiders.

The former seventh overall pick signed a two-year, $10.7 million deal with Memphis this past summer. After appearing in 21 consecutive games, including five starts, McLemore has not played in six of the past eight games.

The 6-foot-5 guard is owed $5.5 million next season in the final year of his contract, according to our Grizzlies salary page.

McLemore is averaging 6.5 points in 17.2 minutes per game.

In addition, Memphis is open to dealing swingman James Ennis for at least one second-round pick, league sources told Basketball Insiders.

Ennis is in the final year of his contract and earns $3 million this season.

The 6-foot-7 forward is averaging 6.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in 23.7 minutes per game. Ennis is shooting 50 percent from the field, 35 percent from beyond the arc, and 89 percent at the foul line.

The 27-year-old has averaged 23.6 minutes per game and become a solid rotation player in Memphis since the 2016-17 season.

Michael Scotto is a Senior NBA Writer for Basketball Insiders in his sixth season covering the league. He also works for The Associated Press focusing on Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks game coverage.

Report: Bogdan Bogdanovic Weighing Four-Year, $50 Million Extension Offer from Kings

Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic said the team has offered him a maximum contract extension that would pay more than $50 million and keep him in Sacramento for four more years, but he is in no hurry to sign it.

Bogdanovic told The Sacramento Bee he wants to take his time with the decision. He would prefer to remain in Sacramento, but he could receive more lucrative offers if he waits to become a restricted free agent this summer.

“I would like to stay,” Bogdanovic said. “Everyone knows that I love Sacramento. Everyone loves to be here. It’s a great group of guys. I’m happy right now and I was happy all these years, but I don’t want to rush anything.”

The Kings have an offer for Hield on the table for four years and $90 million, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Hield and his agent, Brandon Rosenthal, are seeking a number closer to $110 million, sources said.

With the 2020 free-agent class expected to be weak in terms of star power, sources said Hield is prepared to bet on himself and play out the season to test the market as a restricted free agent next summer if Monday’s deadline passes without a deal in place.
