Toronto Raptors Acquire Marc Gasol In Trade With Memphis Grizzlies

Coming to Toronto is Marc Gasol, but it came at a cost of Jonas Valanciunas, C.J.

The Grizzlies traded Gasol, 34, on Thursday at the National Basketball Association trade deadline with the center holding a $25 million option he can exercise this summer. He spent 11 seasons with the Grizzlies and is the franchise's all-time leader in points, rebounds, blocks and made field goals.

While averaging just under 19 minutes a game this season, Valanciunas, 26, has posted a career-high 12.8 points per game, and pulls down 7.2 rebounds per contest. 14-year veteran CJ Miles has come on strong as of late and is averaging 5.5 points through 40 games this season.

The 32-year-old sharpshooter is now part of the New York Knicks (with a buyout impending) after being traded by the Dallas Mavericks in the deal that centered around Kristaps Porzingis. InsideHoops.com exclusively spoke with three-time NBA All-Defensive team member Serge Ibaka and one-time NBA All-Defensive team member Danny Green about adding Gasol after the Raptors defeated the Atlanta Hawks 119-101 at State Farm Arena last night.

This is kind of the question after the Raptors acquired Marc Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies at the trade deadline Thursday in a deal first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

It's a bit surprising that this was all they were able to get back for Gasol, but the big man is clearly past his prime and could opt-in to a player option for next season for $25 million. Whether he'll opt into that player option is anyone's guess, and it probably won't become clear until the after the playoffs.
