Grizzlies, Jazz discussing Mike Conley-Ricky Rubio trade

The Toronto Raptors are considering a franchise-altering trade.

According to a league source, as it stands now, the Pistons and the Jazz are the two front-runners in the Conley sweepstakes.

Conley, 31, is averaging 20.3 points, 3.4 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game this season.

$153 million for a solid point guard was seen as a large check at the time, and Memphis is no longer interested in cashing that straight to Conley's direct deposit.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported last week that Memphis was beginning to listen to offers around Conley and Marc Gasol with the potential of beginning to reshape their roster around promising rookie Jaren Jackson Jr. In addition, the Jazz would likely have to absorb the remaining two years and $66 million that Conley has on his current contract. 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, who is in his age 28 season, will become a free agent after this year.

Conley has spent his entire 12-year career in Memphis. While Rubio could be included in this deal, the Jazz are likely to throw in at least a future first-round pick.

As the National Basketball Association trade deadline quickly approaches, interest in Memphis Grizzlies big man Marc Gasol is heating up, and two teams have been linked to acquiring the veteran center. Memphis is now ranked 14th in the Western Conference.
