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.

Dirk Nowitzki has reclaimed the No. 6 spot on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, passing Wilt Chamberlain on Monday night in what will probably be the final major milestone of his legendary career.

Nowitzki, the longtime face of the Dallas Mavericks franchise who is playing his 21st and likely final season, spent a few years as the sixth-leading scorer in NBA history before LeBron James passed him earlier this season. He entered Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans needing four points to pass Chamberlain, who scored 31,419 points in his Hall of Fame career, and accomplished the feat by swishing his first two shots of the night.
