Marc Gasol went for 22 and eight with two blocks in Sunday’s win over the Suns.
Gasol looks like he came into camp a bit heavy and he’s had a slow top-50 start. He has been great from the foul line hitting 87 percent there, but his field goal percentage is about three points down and he needs to get his defensive numbers up. The Grizzlies were nearly written off a week into the season and — shocker — an old team took November off. This has opportunity written all over it and we’re comfortable pitching any top-30 player to get our hands on Gasol.
