Grizzlies will retire Marc Gasol’s No. 33

With the Raps shipping out four regulars - including Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, C.J. Miles and Greg Monroe - in the span of a couple hours and Kawhi Leonard sitting out, the team trotted out a lineup against the Hawks on Thursday consisting of only nine active players.

New Orleans only chose to play Davis after the league reminded the franchise of the rest rule, wherever the team could be levied a $100,000 fine per game that he Saturday Memphis dealt away Gasol and almost shifted Conley but couldn't get teams to meet their demands.

The team plans to aggressively pursue options who have been, or will be, made available in the buyout market, the Raptors president said during his post-deadline press conference.

Overall, it will be hard to see Gasol in anything other than a Memphis uniform, especially after the way the season started, but keep in mind, this can the chance for him to get the ring he deserves.

Pompeo "underscored the central importance of ensuring the centrality of the Afghan government in the peace process", Ghani said. Karzai, who was president from 2001 to 2014, said he was "happy" to sit down with his former foes.

The 34-year-old Gasol is making $24.1 million this season and has a player option worth $25.6 million for next season. He has averaged 15.3 points and 8.4 rebounds in 23.0 minutes in 10 games as a starter.

Gasol (7-1, 255) has averaged 15.2 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.48 blocks in 33.7 minutes while shooting 48.4 percent from the field, 34.4 percent from three-point range and 77.7 percent from the free throw line in 769 career regular season games (762 starts) in 11 National Basketball Association seasons, all with the Grizzlies.

Pera praised Gasol as a pillar of the Grizzlies for 11 seasons and part of the core that shaped the franchise's identity on and off the court. He had surgery after suffering a dislocated left thumb on December 12 and has not played since. Mike Conley is averaging 20.3 points and 6.4 assists while Jaren Jackson averaging 13.9 points and 4.8 rebounds.

Miles, 31, is averaging 5.5 points and 1.7 rebounds this season. Of his first six selections, five will become free agents at season's end. The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 100.3 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 103.6 points on 44.9 percent shooting.
