Grizzlies manager Chris Wallace explains team’s moves after Gasol

Toronto Raptors Acquire Marc Gasol In Trade With Memphis Grizzlies

Raptors to acquire Marc Gasol, send Jonas Valanciunas to Grizzlies: report

With the Raps shipping out four regulars - including Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, C.J. Miles and Greg Monroe - in the span of a couple hours and Kawhi Leonard sitting out, the team trotted out a lineup against the Hawks on Thursday consisting of only nine active players. The team values him as a mentor for rookie Jaren Jackson Jr., and Conley was not eager to be dealt, a separate ESPN report added. In his 11 seasons with Memphis, Gasol became the franchise leader in points, rebounds, blocks and field goals made.

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.

Friday, beleaguered general manager Chris Wallace met the media, explaining the moves the Grizzlies made at Thursday's deadline, sending Gasol to Toronto, shipping out three other players for guys with upside and financial and roster flexibility, and moving forward.

The 34-year-old center is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists over 53 games with the Grizzlies this season.

Marc Gasol #33 of the Memphis Grizzlies plays the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center on December 10, 2018 in Denver, Colorado.

The Raptors selected Wright with a first-round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Several players seem to be drawing extra attention from the Raptors, who have to fill both the centre slot vacated by Monroe and need extra depth on the wings after losing Wright and Miles.

Gasol has a $25.6 million player option for next season.
