Latest Mike Conley Trade Rumors: Pistons Reportedly Offer First-Round Pick

The team is also looking to trade veteran point guard Mike Conley and multiple teams are reportedly interested, including the Utah Jazz.

The Raptors may not be finished with their deadline dealings as they have as many as three roster spots to fill - the team dealt guard Malachi Richardson to the 76ers yesterday for cash considerations.

"Utah was making some progress in acquiring him, and I think that would have been a tremendous deal for Utah", Windhorst said.

But Detroit and Utah are reportedly the front-runners to land the veteran point guard, with Toronto and IN in the mix as well. They have shown interest in Conley and if they want to make the playoffs this would be a good move to do so.

If the Kyle Lowry trade rumors are real then Conley to Toronto could make a lot of sense.

Gasol, 34, represents an upgrade at the centre position for the Raptors.

Marc Stein of the New York Times seconded Windhorst's report on Conley.

It does sound like Utah may have already known about Conley's preference to go to the East.

"Windhorst continued to say "[Toronto's Kyle] Lowry has a possibility that he could end up with the Jazz. "Conley is owed $66 million over the next two seasons".

Conley scored 25 points and handed out 9 assists for Memphis and Jaren Jackson added 23 in the Grizzlies' second straight win, 108-106.

"Indications from Toronto and Pacers side that Grizzlies' price is prohibitively high", Amick reported. The former second-team All-American is averaging 8.0 points, 2.9 asissts, 2.9 rebounds and 20 minutes this season in his third season as an National Basketball Association reserve. Whether he can still reach the heights of peak Gasol, a player the Raptors had eyes on over the years according to intermittent reports, is of more debate.
