Raptors Agree To Trade With Grizzlies For Marc Gasol

With the addition of Gasol, the Raptors have reshaped their roster along with the offseason acquisition of two-time Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard.

Gasol, 34, is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and a career-high 4.7 assists (which ranks second among National Basketball Association centers, trailing only Nikola Jokic's 7.7). Yes, they offered me something similar, but I did not want to finish assistant-coach.

The deal also includes the Detroit Pistons, who just traded Johnson to Milwaukee on Wednesday. Now, it's being reported that Conley is less than interested in playing in Utah and would prefer a move to the Eastern Conference.

The Houston Rockets are the only other team to feature that. Miles were a part of the team's rotation off the bench. The team also moved Greg Monroe and another second round pick to the Brooklyn Nets for cash considerations. MarShon Brooks finally was traded away January 3 along with Wayne Selden Jr.to Chicago. The biggest news, however, is of one certain player remaining in New Orleans for now.

After the Raptors were eliminated by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the playoffs last season, there was a point this summer in which it appeared a new coach would be the only significant change to the group that kept getting punched right in the face by LeBron James and his Infinity Glove in the post-season. Philadelphia entered Thursday at +300 to win the East.


In exchange, the Sixers gave the Rockets the right to swap second-round picks in 2021, sources told The Athletic.

Wright, 26, is averaging 6.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 49 games this season. The 28-year-old forward has been shooting 48 percent from the field, 40 percent from 3-point range, and 79 percent from the free-throw line.

The deal was done largely to get Houston under the luxury tax threshold, according to the person who spoke Thursday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it is pending league approval. Both players joined the Cavaliers two days earlier in a trade that sent Rodney Hood to the Portland Trail Blazers.

A person familiar with the negotiations says Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin are on the move yet again, this time going from the Houston Rockets to the Indiana Pacers.
