Celtics, Cavs, Raptors, Blazers … or Grizzlies, the options of Marc Gasol

The situation of Marc Gasol in the Memphis Grizzlies is more delicate than ever after the Spanish power forward attacked his already ex-coach, David Fizdale, when he decided to leave him on the bench during the last quarter against the Brooklyn Nets.
However, the managers of the Tennessee franchise showed their commitment to Gasol by dismissing the coach. In fact, although there have been several rumors of proposals from some teams, the Grizzlies do not want to hear, for now, any offer for the Catalan.

These teams are Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Toronto Raptors and Portland Trail Blazers.
In principle, the Raptors would be willing to let out the Lithuanian pivot Jonas Valanciunas, in addition to young players like Jakob Poeltl or the former student player, Lucas Nogueira, as they point in
Canadians see Gasol as the ideal player to compete for the Eastern Conference throne with his two stars, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, and another Spanish international like Serge Ibaka.

For its part, the Cleveland Cavaliers have the whole season contemplating the possibility of signing a pivot. Greg Monroe, DeAndre Jordan and now Marc Gasol are the names that have sounded the most for those from Ohio who could part with Tristan Thompson, Channing Frye and Iman Shumpert, while they do not intend to negotiate with the first round of the Brooklyn Nets-owned Draft. .
The Celtics already set the Spanish as one of the most interesting players to strengthen, although his desire is to launch for Anthony Davis in the medium-long term.
Meanwhile, in Memphis they are reluctant to face a process of reconstruction and want to form a winning team with a projection of the future with the medium of the Gasol in the lead.
