Toronto Raptors Acquire Marc Gasol In Trade With Memphis Grizzlies

Toronto Raptors Acquire Marc Gasol In Trade With Memphis Grizzlies

Memphis Grizzlies kept guard Mike Conley through Thursday's trade deadline.

According to a report from The Athletic's Shams Charania, the Raptors have agreed to trade Greg Monroe and a second-round pick to the Brooklyn Nets.

Last month, teammate Marc Gasol - who was reportedly traded Thursday to the Toronto Raptors - expressed frustration that Conley was on the trading block.

With an hour to go before the National Basketball Association trade deadline, the Toronto Raptors have pulled the trigger on a major trade according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The 34-year-old Gasol is a three-time National Basketball Association all-star who is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 steals a game in 2018.

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.

A person familiar with the terms tells The Associated Press that the Toronto Raptors have acquired Marc Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies for a package including centre Jonas Valanciunas. While Gasol and Conley were both hot-button topics over recent days, many believed the veteran center would be heading to the Charlotte Hornets.

The Utah Jazz haven't been involved in a trade yet - at least not one that's gone public - but former Beehive State players Delon Wright and C.J. Miles will reportedly have new National Basketball Association homes. The Sixers made a big move to get Tobias Harris and the Bucks made a big trade to get Nikola Mirotic. The New Orleans Pelicans held onto Davis but dealt Nikola Mirotic to the Bucks, one of the Eastern Conference contenders who fortified their teams on Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019 before the National Basketball Association trade deadline.
