The Raptors And Grizzlies Have Reportedly Agreed To A Marc Gasol Trade

Conley-Mike-USNews-012719-ftr-getty

Now, the Toronto Raptors have chose to get in on the fun, swinging for the fences on a move for a former All-Star.

The Raptors may not be finished with their deadline dealings as they have as many as three roster spots to fill - the team dealt guard Malachi Richardson to the 76ers yesterday for cash considerations.

The Toronto Raptors have reportedly agreed to a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies that will send veteran center Marc Gasol north of the border in exchange for Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, CJ Miles and a 2024 second-round pick. Franchise stars Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry missed significant time, and yet the Raptors have continued to foster a winning attitude thanks to their sheer depth across the board marching to a 39-16 record. At the end of the day it isn't his choice so if he is traded to the Jazz then he certainly would play for them to the best of his abilities. "I don't think there's one thing I can say or do [to change that], you know what I mean?" His shooting woes had become a hot topic among fans of the Raptors, who have struggled with the deep ball in recent weeks.

Groundhog doesn't see his shadow, predicting early spring
The 1993 film " Groundhog Day " starring Bill Murray, gave world fame to the groundhog Phil, but he's not the only weather marmot. Since 1887, Phil's winter prognostication has only been correct 39 percent of the time , according to Stormfax Almanac's data.

Gasol, though not the the player he once was, should nevertheless prove an upgrade for the Raptors at center.

A three-time All-Star and the 2013 Defensive Player of the Year, Gasol has a 15 percent trade bonus that is valued at $1.28 million.

To go along with his scoring, Gasol is an excellent passer. Whether he can still reach the heights of peak Gasol, a player the Raptors had eyes on over the years according to intermittent reports, is of more debate. In landing him, Toronto went from a team that was being passed as it stood still to striding aggressively back into the Eastern Conference race, otherwise known as the fight to be pantsed by the Golden State Warriors in the Finals. While everyone wondered what Ujiri would do after another embarrassing playoff exit, we now have our answer: He blew it up.
