As the Memphis Grizzlies approach a crossroads ahead of the Feb. 7 NBA trade deadline, franchise stars Marc Gasol and Mike Conley Jr. met with owner Robert Pera this week over the state of the team, league sources told The Athletic.

Conley and Gasol, who has a player option for next season worth $25.5 million, sat down with Pera in Memphis this week to discuss the direction of the franchise, league sources said. Pera often meets with key team personnel when he visits Memphis over the course of a season.

Several NBA teams have monitored Gasol’s situation — and possible availability — in Memphis, but the Grizzlies so far this season have stated their desire to compete for a postseason berth with a team built around the three-time All-Star center and Conley. Gasol, who will turn 34 later this month, has averaged 15.4 points and 8.4 rebounds this season, but the Grizzlies have sputtered since a 12-5 start.

Sources tell me Patrick Beverley–a sensible FA target of the Bulls and Lakers–will be taking meetings with as many as 5 teams BEFORE meeting with the Clippers in 2 weeks. Clippers will be chasing max-type FAs, but Beverley won’t necessarily wait on an offer from them, I’m told.

Vlade Divac and his team have placed an emphasis on improving the center position, but according to a league source, while the team holds Nikola Vucevic in high regard, the team is not expected to chase the Orlando Magic big man in free agency, despite reports to the contrary.

After posting 20.8 points, 12.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.1 blocks per game this season, Vucevic is primed to sign a mega contract, whether it’s with the Orlando or elsewhere.

The 28-year-old is skilled and made his first All-Star team this season, but he’s not a great fit for the Kings’ uptempo style of play.
