Or right after their 8 game losing streak and 7-12 overall to start the season.

They started off pretty well. Don't know what happened

I suspect this means it will be a while before Gasol becomes available on the market. Coach fired means they still want to win.

Good news for the Raps if they want him. They are a much bigger threat to land him in the summer than in-season.

He must've talked some serious smack to front office people behind closed doors. Boom you're gone doesn't happen this early in the season too often. Especially to a team that's not playing horrible. We know the Grizzlies coach is not afraid to speak his mind.

"The rift between Fizdale and Marc Gasol was real, multiple league sources told Yahoo Sports, a toxic relationship that took root last season and reached its breaking point on Sunday, when Gasol watched the final 12 minutes of Memphis’ 98-88 loss to Brooklyn from the bench."

Yep!  OG being amazing changes the Norm situation.  But we can't do it until the summer.  

And I expect MEM might be able to find better offers, unless they really like Norm.

Can't see Memphis trading Gasol after firing Fizdale. Maybe in the summer if their season is a total loss.

They'll only trade him if it's a total rebuild, in wgphich case they would be looking to dump Conley's massive contract. Griz will be interesting to watch over the next few months. Imo they should rebuild.
