Grizzlies trade Marc Gasol to Toronto

Marc Gasol Grizzlies Hornets

And Conley's tenure might only last the rest of this season.

Over the years, the NBA's trade deadline has been one of the more entertaining times of the season. It is not so much that Gasol is no longer good, because he is.

Gasol, while at 34 is eight years older than the big Lithuanian, is a three-time All-Star, two-time All-NBA, and a former Defensive Player of the Year. However, Utah's apparent pursuit of Conley may have hit some snags. The version of Gasol from even two years ago would render this deal a no-brainer. It was a bit surprising in light of the Gasol move that the Grizzlies wouldn't go through a hard reset but, in the end, Conley is sticking around. It seems the trade demands for Memphis make this deal unlikely to happen.

Memphis also reportedly traded JaMychal Green and Garrett Temple to the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday.

Toronto's roster will be down 11 after the trade, meaning the Raptors will likely need to make a few more additions.

Charlotte Hornets veteran point guard Tony Parker spent the majority of his career with the San Antonio Spurs, and he will now don a different team's jersey for the first time during his long National Basketball Association career when he takes the court for the Hornets this upcoming season. He is the Grizzlies' franchise leader in points, rebounds, blocks and field goals made.

Valanciunas was cleared to play today after missing 25 games with a dislocated left thumb and was expected in Toronto's lineup for Thursday's game at Atlanta. Now the center gets to try to replace Gasol. "My relationship with the Grizzlies might change, but my relationship with Memphis won't. But there is no replacing what Marc has done here, and what he's meant to this team". MarShon Brooks finally was traded away January 3 along with Wayne Selden Jr.to Chicago.

"Indications from Toronto and Pacers side that Grizzlies' price is prohibitively high", Amick reported. 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.
