Grizzlies trade Marc Gasol to Toronto

  • Kyle Lowry

Sam Amick and Tony Jones of The Athletic both reported that the Pacers have been in contact with the Memphis Grizzlies about Conley.

Lowry, who has been selected as an all-star in each of the past five seasons, is averaging 14.2 points and 4.4 rebounds per game with his 9.2 assists per game ranking second-best in the National Basketball Association behind Russell Westbrook.

According to Sports Illustrated's Jake Fischer, talks between Memphis and the Charlotte Hornets surrounding a deal for Gasol fell short of being completed on Tuesday night, opening the door for Toronto to make a move.

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.

Memphis sent Gasol to the Raptors in exchange for Jonas Valanciunas.

The company faces demographic challenges as younger users shift to other platforms, seeing Facebook as less cool than it once was. At the time the report stated that Mark Zuckerburg was personally involved in the project and was pushing for its completion.

The Raptors do assume some risk in this trade as Gasol carries an expensive player option next season at $25 million and they need to fill out the rest of the roster with only 26 games to get it all together ahead of the postseason.

The 26-year-old Wright, who was selected by Toronto in the first round of the 2015 draft, is averaging 6.9 points, 2.2 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 18.3 minutes of action per game this season.

The Raptors next play Thursday on the road against the Atlanta Hawks but until the 3 p.m. ET deadline passes it could be an interesting, albeit stressful, time for Lowry and others.

Considering he is on a better, more well-rounded team now, it is possible we will see Gasol's overall production take a dip, though he will undoubtedly be a vital part of the Raptors for the remainder of the season. I just know one thing. The Raptors (39-16) currently sit in second place in the Eastern Conference standings and are in win-now mode with no guarantee Kawhi Leonard re-signs this offseason. Valanciunas was averaging 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds at the time of his injury.

Miles, 31, is averaging 5.5 points and 1.7 rebounds this season.
