Adjust Comment Print

The Toronto Raptors have acquired Marc Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies for a package including centre Jonas Valanciunas. ESPN, which first reported the deal, also said CJ Miles and Delon Wright will be included and going to Memphis.

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.

However, Gasol is averaging 15.7 points, 8.9 rebounds and 4.7 assists this season with his best asset being his elite passing skills, defensive ability, capable three-point shooting at 34.4 per cent.

One of the factors that seem to have made a Conley trade hard for Memphis is the speculation that he only wants to be traded to an Eastern Conference team.

Valanciunas is averaging 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds while Wright is scoring 6.9 points per game and Miles is putting up 5.5 points.

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.
