Gasol Trade

The Memphis Grizzlies acquired another young point guard in the trade that sent Pau Gasol to the Lakers for Kwame Brown, Javaris Crittenton, and draft picks. Coach Marc Iavaroni stated that the addition of Crittenton shouldn't affect Kyle Lowry's playing time. The 6'5 Crittenton will most likely play shooting guard for the Grizzlies because he is more of a scorer. What will affect Lowry's playing time is the return of Mike Conley from injury tonight. Conley missed the last five games with a chest and rib injury. Despite Lowry's recent success as a starter, he will likely come off the bench when Conley returns.
