  • Toronto Raptors Acquire Marc Gasol In Trade With Memphis Grizzlies

Coming to Toronto is Marc Gasol, but it came at a cost of Jonas Valanciunas, C.J.

After the game on the ESPN broadcast, he said his teammates wanted him to play and Davis said that he was just happy to go out there and play basketball.

"You know, the kind of players (Gasol and Mike Conley Jr., who stayed put) are, these are legends in Memphis and they've never been, I don't remember them ever being available".

Jose Calderon picked up a lot of assists while playing for the Toronto Raptors - 4,288 regular season dimes and another 67 in the playoffs to be exact.




But the last time that Memphis traded a Gasol brother, it led to Pau Gasol's first championship in 2009, with the Los Angeles Lakers. They added an elite centre in Marc Gasol, and according to Masai Ujiri they are not done adding pieces for the playoff run. New Orleans gives up an average of 120 points per game in those outings, which is worse than their full season mark of 116.9 points a contest.

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.

In 53 games, Conley has averaged 20.4 points per game, 3.4 rebounds per game, and 6.4 assists per game - all in the top-three for his career. He had surgery after suffering a dislocated left thumb on December 12 and has not played since.

Owner Robert Pera issued a statement Friday morning after the franchise confirmed the trade netting Memphis a trio of players and a second-round draft pick in the 2024 draft. Prior to the trade, the Raptors had expected the center to return against Atlanta on Thursday night, with the team tweeting out a picture of Valanciunas with a quote from him saying, "I'm back". Valanciunas was averaging 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds at the time of his injury. He is averaging 6.9 points, 2.2 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game this season.
