Toronto Raptors Acquire Marc Gasol In Trade With Memphis Grizzlies

First, Gasol gives the Raptors a little more punch on both ends of the floor.

"The Spurs offered me the same thing (contractually) as Charlotte, but it was more about the role", Parker said, during an interview with L'Espresso. We have a good future in front of us for this season, so I just want to go on the court and play ball and win the games. Later in what turned into a marathon day, they sent Greg Monroe and a 2021 second-round pick to Brooklyn for cash considerations.

Wright, 26, was averaging 6.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in a depth role with the Raptors this season.

Gasol is a two-time all-NBA selection, a three-time all-star and the 2013 defensive player of the year and while not as spry or as effective at 34 years old as he was at 28, he is still a formidable presence.

It is a power move for Toronto, as it looks to improve its roster as it vies with Philadelphia and Milwaukee, among others, in the Eastern Conference.

It's not a surprise that Toronto made a move because Philly added Tobias Harris and Milwaukee added Nikola Mirotic. Conley is third at 12 seasons. Gasol has two years left on the five-year, $113-million deal he signed with the Grizzlies in 2015. He, too, has a player option for $17.6 million for next season. Miles, 31, has been a disappointment, scoring just 5.5 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 0.6 assists per game. The 7-foot big man had surgery for a dislocated thumb December 12, and hasn't played in a contest since his procedure.

Marc Gasol #33 of the Memphis Grizzlies plays the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center on December 10, 2018 in Denver, Colorado.

The Utah Jazz haven't been involved in a trade yet - at least not one that's gone public - but former Beehive State players Delon Wright and C.J. Miles will reportedly have new National Basketball Association homes.
