Memphis Grizzlies Tribute to Big Spain

Toronto Raptors Acquire Marc Gasol In Trade With Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies were expected to make waves ahead of the National Basketball Association trade deadline, and roughly one hour before the final buzzer, they did just that.

Gasol isn't playing tonight against the Timberwolves, further amplifying all of the trade chatter surrounding the Grizzlies.

And although he's no longer with organization, the 37-year-old Spanish guard picked up yet another shortly after finding out that fellow countryman Marc Gasol would be moving north of the border.

The team plans to aggressively pursue options who have been, or will be, made available in the buyout market, the Raptors president said during his post-deadline press conference.

In a separate deal, the Raptors traded veteran center Greg Monroe and a 2021 second-round pick to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for cash considerations. The 76ers and Bucks have also made major moves as the trade deadline nears, with the Sixers landing Tobias Harris and Milwaukee getting Nikola Mirotic.

Pera praised Gasol as a pillar of the Grizzlies for 11 seasons and part of the core that shaped the franchise's identity on and off the court.

Even in another bad, anonymous Grizzlies season, Gasol has continued to produce, scoring 15.7 points per game and grabbing 8.6 rebounds per game. Conley is third at 12 seasons.

The other goal in these moves is to play well enough over the season's final 26 games to convey this year's first round pick, a top 8 protected pick, to Boston and get a clean slate. Anthony Davis is averaging 29.3 points and 13.3 rebounds while Jrue Holiday is averaging 20.9 points and eight assists. The 34-year-old big man has a player option for next season which comes with a cap hit of more than $25.59 million, per Spotrac. The Pelicans put up an average of 112.7 points per game in those situations compared to their full season mark of 116.2 points a night.

Memphis will receive Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, C.J. Miles and a 2024 second-round pick in return.
