NBA Insider Has Latest On Potential Mike Conley Trade

The Toronto Raptors have acquired Marc Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for Jonas Valančiūnas, Delon Wright, CJ Miles and a 2024 second-round pick.

"Marc has been a dedicated teammate, star player and pillar of this team for the past 11 seasons", Pera said in a statement.

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. Keeping that in mind, the Raptors are a high caliber team that can use Gasol to boost their way to the postseason, finals, and a hopeful championship in Toronto. He has played the most minutes in Grizzlies history, is first in points scored, first in rebounds, first in blocks and first in free-throws made. The 76ers and Bucks have also made major moves as the trade deadline nears, with the Sixers landing Tobias Harris and Milwaukee getting Nikola Mirotic.

Gasol has been with the Grizzlies for 11 seasons, which was tied with Russell Westbrook for the fourth-longest tenure with one franchise among active players.

Gasol finished his Grizzlies career with averages of 15.2 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 769 games.

The 12-year National Basketball Association veteran has been enjoying an incredible bounce-back year in Memphis after only playing 12 games last season.

Gasol has a $25.6 million player option for next season. Prior to the trade, the Raptors had expected the center to return against Atlanta on Thursday night, with the team tweeting out a picture of Valanciunas with a quote from him saying, "I'm back". The under is also 5-2 in the Pelicans' last seven games versus the Southwest, is 5-1 in the Grizzlies' last six games overall and cashed in seven straight Memphis games when it faces an opponent with a losing record. Mike Conley is averaging 20.3 points and 6.4 assists while Jaren Jackson Jr.is averaging 13.9 points and 4.8 rebounds.
