Grizzlies Could Wait Until Draft To Trade Mike Conley

  • Rumors: Pacers made an offer for Mike Conley

In order for any of the Raptors' pursuits to be eligible for the postseason, they must be put on waivers or bought out by March 1. Our young players, the Jaren Jacksons and Ivan Rabbs, we want them to taste winning. Reassurance would be great, but at the end of the day, they don't have to call me.

The Raptors are now sitting behind the Milwaukee Bucks in second place in the NBA's Eastern Conference.

In the deal, the Grizzlies brought back center Jonas Valanciunas, guard Delon Wright, guard/forward C.J. Miles and a 2024 second-round draft pick.

Miles has been mired in a season-long slump, but had shown flashes of breaking out of it in the last couple of weeks, and Wright has a creativity and feel for the game that's unique, even if he had been inconsistent this season.

However, due to Lowry's dip in performance this past year, most notably when his free-throw rate dropped several points, it was Valančiūnas who became a better trade for the Grizzlies.

The Marc Gasol trade made it seem like it was only a matter of time before Mike Conley was going to leave Memphis. The 2013 NBA Defensive Player of the Year has career averages of 15.2 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.5 blocks, while twice being named to the All-NBA team.


It won't be easy for Toronto to land Ellington given the amount of teams coveting a player with his particular skillset, though.

ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news.

Valanciunas hasn't played in almost two months after suffering a dislocated thumb, but is ready to return to the lineup.

Acquiring the 34-year-old Gasol was a power move for a Toronto team looking to at least keep pace with Milwaukee and Philadelphia, who both pulled the trigger on trades of their own, in a heated Eastern Conference race. He is averaging 6.9 points, 2.2 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game this season.

The Warriors don't face the Raptors again during the regular season, so they will only match up against Gasol if the two teams reach the NBA Finals.

If he doesn't return to Europe, Teodosic could be a player with enough playmaking ability and shooting touch to entice the Raptors. The Raptors have just 10 players under National Basketball Association contracts, and they must be at 14 within the next two weeks.
