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.

Playoff teams are monitoring the availability of Robert Covington, according to multiple league sources. Covington is one of the league’s better 3-and-D wings and could net a significant return that helps the Wolves build around Karl-Anthony Towns and their young core.

The Houston Rockets have serious interest in Covington, league sources say. The Rockets are in the market for wings; with James Harden having another MVP-caliber season, they’re a team that should go all in no matter who the target is. They have the ammo to do so: Despite the pile of picks it sent Oklahoma City in the Chris Paul–for–Russell Westbrook blockbuster, Houston can still dangle its first-round picks in 2020 and 2022.
