Did the Memphis Grizzlies offer Jerryd Bayless for Jodie Meeks?

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

According the Ric Bucher of the Bleacher Report, there are league sources saying that the Grizzlies offered a swap of shooting guards to the Lakers.

I somehow missed this rumor amidst all the visions of sugarplums dancing in my head over the past few days. Nevertheless, the Grizzlies' names continue to appear on the trade market, and it appears as though they're beginning to try and con teams into taking their scrap pieces before they get into any serious trade talks.

The Lakers have undoubtedly shot this trade offer down (assuming it was offered in the first place), and with good reason. Bayless is having an abysmal year, shooting 36% from the field and 27% from three, while Meeks is averaging 46% and 41%, respectively.

While I still enjoy Jerryd Bayless as a player and person, there's no way that the Grizzlies are going to get any conceivable asset is a straight swap with him right now.
