Grizzlies, Jazz discussing deal involving guards Mike Conley and Ricky Rubio

Utah has reportedly offered the Grizzlies guard Ricky Rubio and a first-round pick in exchange for Conley, while the Pistons package would center around Reggie Jackson.

The point guard agreed to a five-year, $153 million deal with the Grizzlies in the summer of 2016.

Conley would give the Raptors a much-needed secondary scoring option outside of Leonard, averaging a healthy 20.3 points per game on.435 percent shooting, including.359 percent from deep. Valanciunas, 26, was playing some of the best basketball of his career before injuring his hand against the Golden State Warriors in early December.

Rubio's $15 million contract expires at the end of this season.

However, Stein notes that Conley's contract could make a deal hard, as he is owed $66 million over the next two seasons and Rubio only has $15 million remaining on his expiring contract.

During one of Trump's trips to Mar-a-Lago in early 2017, the president played host to visiting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The White House did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

Gasol, 34, is a 7-foot-1 big man from Spain.

Gasol, 34, was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers but has played his entire 11-season National Basketball Association career with the Grizzlies, joining the team in a 2008 trade package that included his brother Pau Gasol. Valanciunas has played his entire career in Toronto since being selected fifth overall by the Raptors in the 2011 NBA Draft.

The Grizzlies now sit second-last in the NBA's Western Conference, so acquiring a player of Lowry's age might not make sense as they look to rebuild.

Stein also is reporting that additional players would likely have to be included in the deal.
