Raptors trade Valanciunas to Grizzlies for Gasol in 4-player deal

Raptors trade Valanciunas to Grizzlies for Gasol in 4-player deal

That, however, didn't stop him from connecting with Gasol after he was traded for Jonas Valanciunas, C.J. Miles, Delon Wright and a second-round pick on Thursday.

"Marc has been a dedicated teammate, star player and pillar of this team for the past 11 seasons".

That wasn't the only deal the Grizzlies made, as management was busy, pulling off four deals in total and one big "no deal", electing to hold onto to Conley instead of deal him to the long-rumored Utah Jazz or Detroit Pistons.

The Raptors, 40-16, are 1.5 games behind Milwaukee for the top record in the Eastern Conference while the Grizzlies, 22-34, have the second-worst record in the Western Conference, eight games behind the Los Angeles Clippers for the last playoff spot. Memphis was clubbed 117-95 on the road by Oklahoma City in their last game on Thursday night.

76ers coach Brett Brown sad about Fultz trade
The 76ers moved on from the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft on Thursday when they traded Markelle Fultz to the Magic . And I was pleased for him that he had a new start, a fresh start, another opportunity".

Gradually, more and more fans started cheering Davis as he went on to score 32 points and grab nine rebounds in 25 minutes, making 11 of 15 field-goal attempts and 10 of 11 foul shots.

For the first time in his National Basketball Association career, the uniform Marc Gasol puts on for his next game will not be the threads of the Memphis Grizzlies.

Though this may be the first time, since 2001, that a player by the name of Gasol has not played for the Memphis Grizzlies, it can be the opportunity for another Gasol brother to win an NBA World Championship. The amount of his bonus (if not waived) will be applied to his $24.1 million salary. Valanciunas was averaging 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds at the time of his injury. He had surgery after suffering a dislocated left thumb on December 12 and has not played since. He is averaging 6.9 points, 2.2 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game this season.

Valanciunas, Miles and Wright can enter free agency next season. The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 100.3 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 103.6 points on 44.9 percent shooting.
