Raptors guard Lowry: I've never asked for a trade

Rumors: Pacers made an offer for Mike Conley

Initial rumours named both Valanciunas and Kyle Lowry in a potential deal for Gasol and Memphis point guard Mike Conley.

"Today was a hard day ... you think about a guy like Marc Gasol, we owe him nothing but appreciation, respect for what he's done for the organization".

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.

Gasol, 34, represents an upgrade at the centre position for the Raptors.

"They make moves for the best of the organisation".

Valanciunas, 26, has missed Toronto's last 25 games with a thumb injury, but was scheduled to return to the lineup tonight in Atlanta.

Over the years, the NBA's trade deadline has been one of the more entertaining times of the season.

The Grizzlies will also receive Jonas Valanciunas and a 2024 second-round draft pick from Memphis in exchange for the 7-foot-1 big man. His average of 5.5 points per game is his lowest output since 2007-08.

Gasol is a three-time all-star and the 2013 defensive player of the year.

Memphis also reportedly traded JaMychal Green and Garrett Temple to the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday.

Gasol has always been one of the most well-rounded big men in the entire league. Now the center gets to try to replace Gasol.

"We added a player that's very savvy, in the playoffs you need experience, going forward you need a really strong basketball mind, toughness, you need size, you need shooting from outside, basketball IQ. he combines it all", Ujiri said. Then the Grizzlies announced January 6 that Chandler Parsons would continue rehab in Los Angeles after reports both sides had agreed to a split.

In parting ways with Valanciunas, the Raptors lose a genuinely likeable big man, a guy who had become a franchise great somewhat by virtue of having been a long-serving member of the team during the best era in its history.
