  • BREAKING: Memphis Trading Marc Gasol to Toronto Raptors

Considering he is on a better, more well-rounded team now, it is possible we will see Gasol's overall production take a dip, though he will undoubtedly be a vital part of the Raptors for the remainder of the season.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Toronto is planning to send Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, C.J. Miles and a 2024 second-round pick to Memphis in exchange for Gasol.

There were rumblings suggesting the team was in talks with the Memphis Grizzlies and it appears those conversations finally led to a deal getting done as the Raptors acquired Marc Gasol.

The Charlotte Hornets also held discussions with the Grizzlies on Gasol.

Bradley averaged 8.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 49 games for the Clippers this season.

Memphis sent Gasol to the Raptors in exchange for Jonas Valanciunas, a person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the details couldn't be announced until approved by the National Basketball Association.

Valanciunas, who had missed the last 25 games for the Raptors, was scheduled to return to the lineup tonight against the Atlanta Hawks before the trade was announced. It was a bit surprising in light of the Gasol move that the Grizzlies wouldn't go through a hard reset but, in the end, Conley is sticking around.

Valanciunas, Wright and Miles can become free agents next season. Lowry told reporters at Wells Fargo Center after the game that he hasn't asked for a trade and that he wants to stay in Toronto to help the team win a championship.

It was flop-sweats time for Raptors fans and, even if they might not admit, for Ujiri and GM Bobby Webster and everyone else in the Toronto front office.

The Grizzlies came into this season insisting they could be a playoff team. "I don't think there's one thing I can say or do [to change that], you know what I mean?"

In his fourth season, Johnson is averaging 7.5 points and 3.6 rebounds.
