Raptors getting Marc Gasol for Valanciunas, Wright, Miles, 2nd-rounder

May JohnsonFeb 08, 2019

Wright has been with Toronto since being picked 20th overall by the Raptors out of Utah in 2015.

Gasol has always been one of the most well-rounded big men in the entire league.

The Raptors are sending Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, CJ Miles, and a 2024 second-round pick to the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for Marc Gasol.

The Raptors are now second in the Eastern Conference with a record of 39-16, while the Grizzlies rank among the worst in the league at 22-23.

They seemed like they were celebrating and people were talking about it, ' said the source. The couple has been photographed together everywhere from New York City to Rome to Paris.

Rubio is either cool as they come with regards to the business side of the National Basketball Association, i.e. perpetual trade talk and maneuvering, or he's a man who knows he's not going anywhere.

One thing is certain: if the Jazz are all-in on Conley and whiff, they may not be able to make any roster upgrades ahead of the deadline. His shooting woes had become a hot topic among fans of the Raptors, who have struggled with the deep ball in recent weeks.

After the Milwaukee Bucks - acquiring Nikola Mirotic - and Philadelphia 76ers - picking up Tobias Harris - made big moves to try and bolster their status atop the Eastern Conference, it appears the Raptors felt the pressure to jump into the arms race.

Gasol isn't the player he once was - a three-time All-Star and a perennial All-NBA candidate - but the Spaniard has the potential to be what Valanciunas was and more. There have even been some speculations that a three-team trade could go down with Lowry heading to Utah and Conley going to the Raptors. Memphis can trade him anywhere it pleases, and surely the organization will take the best offer on the table regardless of Conley's preferences. While everyone wondered what Ujiri would do after another embarrassing playoff exit, we now have our answer: He blew it up. "I love Toronto and I want to stay here". Either not much, or that was an excellent poker face he displayed.
