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

Marc Gasol

The Grizzlies reportedly will receive Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, CJ Miles, and a 2024 second-round pick in exchange for Gasol.

They tried to rebuild around Conley and Gasol, who had been among just six active National Basketball Association players to spend their entire National Basketball Association careers of at least 10 seasons with one franchise.

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.

Gasol, 34, represents an upgrade at the centre position for the Raptors.

But the 32-year-old, addressing the rumours ahead of Thursday's trade deadline, insists he does not want to leave Toronto.

The 7-foot Valanciunas is averaging 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds this season.

Gasol first signed with the Grizzlies back in 2008, and during his tenure with the team, he was able to lead Memphis to numerous playoff victories.

Several senators running for president in 2020 were also in the audience and they too maintained an uneasy silence. On the Korean peninsula, Trump credited himself with preserving peace with the North Korean dictatorship.


"That's our goal and I think everybody on the team understands that and we'll keep trying to achieve that goal".

The Hornets have needed a second star player to put next to Kemba Walker for years now, and Marc Gasol could be the guy they have been looking for.

According to NBA.com, Gasol is generating 3.4 points per game in the post this season - roughly a quarter of his scoring - putting him behind 10 players for most in the league.

In Valanciunas, the Raptors lose one of their most popular players.

Valanciunas was cleared to play today after missing 25 games with a dislocated left thumb and was expected in Toronto's lineup for Thursday's game at Atlanta. His presence on the Raptors roster had become a topic of debate, as Fred VanVleet's emergence as a quality backup point guard suggested Wright could be expendable.

Miles, 31, has mostly fallen out of the rotation in Toronto.
