The Raptors And Grizzlies Have Reportedly Agreed To A Marc Gasol Trade

Rumors: Pacers made an offer for Mike Conley

The person spoke Thursday to the AP on condition of anonymity because the National Basketball Association has not held the trade call.

However, due to Lowry's dip in performance this past year, most notably when his free-throw rate dropped several points, it was Valančiūnas who became a better trade for the Grizzlies.

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.

Gasol, a three-time all-star, is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 steals per game this season. Big-name players like Tobias Harris and Harrison Barnes already have been traded, and many others could be on the move before 3 p.m. ET. He's still a really, really good basketball player, and with his addition, the Raptors suddenly have a major upgrade in their frontcourt, something they could use in a seven-game postseason series against someone like Joel Embiid or Al Horford. But at just 20 years old, Fultz likely will generate continued interest on the trade market.

"Experience does that for you", Valanciunas told reporters in Atlanta on Thursday morning.

Marc Gasol will have a chance to contend for a title with the Toronto Raptors. Toronto (39-16) is two games back of the Milwaukee Bucks (40-13) atop the Eastern Conference. "I love Toronto and I want to stay there". Valanciunas is a solid player, but he doesn't make much sense for the Grizzlies long term, and neither does Miles. Wright is a nice wing to add, and extra picks are never bad, but a second-rounder from the Raptors isn't exactly that exciting.
