Toronto Raptors Acquire Marc Gasol In Trade With Memphis Grizzlies

BREAKING: Memphis Trading Marc Gasol to Toronto Raptors

BREAKING: Memphis Trading Marc Gasol to Toronto Raptors

The Raptors did not want to be left behind and they stepped up in a big way.

Gasol has played his entire career with the Grizzlies since entering the National Basketball Association in 2008.

The former University of Utah star point guard and ex-Jazz shooting guard will both be sent to Memphis in part of a trade that will send center Marc Gasol to the Toronto Raptors, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Pacers also remain involved in discussions to acquire Conley, The Athletic reported Wednesday. "The trade also provides us with an opportunity to continue to develop two promising young players while giving us future flexibility".

They had resisted the idea of trading Gasol or Mike Conley for a few years, but their big swoon this season made them finally face reality; trying to build around that duo no longer made sense.

"I've been in rumours so many times I don't even look at it", Valanciunas noted.

Democrats HATE That Trump Called Them a Bunch of Socialists
But then, even while the president may have to win over some unconvinced voters in 2020, he also will have to hold onto his base. Throughout the 35-day shutdown, Trump made multiple attempts to convince Democrats and the public of the need for a border wall.

Lowry explained he isn't concerned because trades are just the nature of the business, and the Raptors will make a decision based on what's best for the franchise.

"Marc brings significant playoff experience to our team, which along with his savviness and leadership skills really helps position us for our ultimate post-season goal", Raptors president Masai Ujiri said.

Valančiūnas had previously weighed in on trade discussion stating that he wished to stay in Toronto. I think that's just how they work, and they operate.

"And when Michael Jordan called me, my idol, I thought, let's go", Parker continued. And that was the role they offered me, when I wanted to play. "I'm sure if they were going to trade me, they'd say, 'Hey, Kyle, this is what's on the table'". Now the center gets to try to replace Gasol.

Parker averaged 7.7 points, 3.5 assists, and 1.7 rebounds per game last season for the Spurs.

Gasol, meanwhile, could be in the Raptors' lineup Saturday in NY pending a team physical.
