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

Wright, 26, was averaging 6.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in a depth role with the Raptors this season. And then a little after midday the Milwaukee Bucks jumped in, pilfering sweet-shooting big man Nikola Mirotic from the New Orleans Pelicans for roster flotsam and draft picks, an addition that will make the East-leading Bucks even more of a handful than the Toronto Raptors have already found them to be. 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. I just want to go on the court and play ball and win games. "I don't think there's one thing I can say or do [to change that], you know what I mean?"

That'll become in handy when he's on the floor with the second unit that has struggled with consistency this season.

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


The 34-year-old Gasol now takes his defensive presence to the Eastern Conference where he could possibly put the Raptors in the promised land.

To go along with his scoring, Gasol is an excellent passer. Originally drafted in the second round by the Jazz out of high school in 2005, the 6-foot-5 wing player had played for Utah (2005-12), Cleveland (2012-14) and in (2014-17) before signing a three-year deal with Toronto last offseason.

Ujiri made two moves just prior to the 2017 deadline, acquiring Serge Ibaka from the Orlando Magic and P.J. Tucker from the Phoenix Suns. But three of the four Raptors who played the most minutes against the Cavs last May - DeMar DeRozan, Miles, and Valanciunas - are now all gone. The Hornets were also interested in Gasol. "I love Toronto and I want to stay here".
