Grizzlies Rumors: No More Trades Likely for Memphis

The Memphis Grizzlies completed a three-for-one trade last week that helped them get under the luxury tax line. They were able to do so without shipping out any of their core players, and CEO Jason Levien said earlier this week that the team is “more likely to do nothing” by the NBA’s upcoming trade deadline, according to Ronald Tillery of Commercial Appeal.



 Last week’s trade sent Marreese Speights, Wayne Ellington and Josh Shelby to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Jon Leuer and a protected first-round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

The deal allowed Memphis to shed a little over $4 million, roughly the same amount they were previously over the luxury tax line. The move allowed them to move under the luxury line without parting ways with key players such as Rudy Gay and Zach Randolph.
