Regardless, Gasol has missed only two games this season and is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds, 4.7 assists and a combined 2.3 steals/blocks, while shooting a solid 34.4 per cent from distance.

The Raptors also traded centre Greg Monroe and a second-round pick in 2021 to the Brooklyn Nets, who are reportedly planning to waive the ninth-year veteran. Second, and more importantly, Ujiri is banking on this move helping Toronto go on a long playoff run, which may convince Kawhi Leonard to re-sign with the Raps after this season. The Memphis Grizzlies are sending their star big to the Toronto Raptors. "I just know one thing, we have a good team, we have a good future in front of us". At the very least he should be a rotation piece going forward.

Washington lost point guard John Wall for 2018-19 earlier this season as he elected to have surgery to remove bone spurs in his left heel.

In addition to trading Gasol, the Grizzlies traded Garrett Temple and JaMychal Green to the Los Angeles Clippers in a separate deadline-day deal, according to ESPN. "I love Toronto and I want to stay there".

The Pelicans believe that the Lakers' bid at the trade deadline will still be available to them in the offseason, sources said. Before the season, Doc Rivers and Lawrence Frank claimed they wanted the Clippers to become a destination franchise.

Valanciunas, Wright and Miles can become free agents next season. His comfort spotting up on the 3-point line will draw opposing centres out of the paint and he'll give them another pick-and-pop threat, albeit one who can venture out to the 3-point line. We're going to attack the buyout market and try to get guys.

Marc Gasol will have a chance to contend for a title with the Toronto Raptors.

"I don't understand why Mike is in those talks", Gasol told the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Last summer, Gasol volunteered as part of a Spanish rescue effort in the Mediterranean Sea, plucking people from the water who were fleeing Africa. He voiced his "Frustration, anger and helplessness" on Twitter, writing "It's unbelievable how so many vulnerable people are abandoned to their deaths at sea". They did so in a big way, acquiring Gasol for a pretty low price.
