Kings And Grizzlies Talking Trade?


Jason Thompson Going To Memphis?

Jason Thompson Going To Memphis?

All signs last night pointed to the Grizzlies exchanging picks with the Timberwolves in some sort of deal, but the Commercial Appeal this morning has leaked a rumor involving the Kings and Grizzlies.

The Memphis based paper states that the Kings and Grizzlies are in preliminary talks which would send Jason Thompson and Francisco Garcia to Memphis in exchange for the #2 pick in the draft.The Kings would then hold the #2 and #4 picks in the draft.

Using my salary cap amazingness, I believe the Kings would need to get a small salary back in the deal (Marko Jaric/Hakkim Warrick?)

I’m not really sure why the Grizzlies would do this, and I somewhat question it from the Kings side…but it’s an interesting rumor never the less.
