The deal is interesting as it provides not only depth across the roster but also provides the Grizzlies a solid guard in Wright who could even see additional minutes if Conley is dealt. Both teams have yet to confirm the deal.

Gasol, a three-time NBA All-Star and 2013 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, helped Spain to two Eurobasket titles and two Olympic silver medals in 2008 and 2012.

The other goal in these moves is to play well enough over the season's final 26 games to convey this year's first round pick, a top 8 protected pick, to Boston and get a clean slate.

"Toronto is nearing an agreement to land Marc Gasol, league sources tell ESPN", he reports.


The Raptors are able to get Gasol without giving up a first-round pick.

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.

The Utah Jazz haven't been involved in a trade yet - at least not one that's gone public - but former Beehive State players Delon Wright and C.J. Miles will reportedly have new National Basketball Association homes.

The Raptors are second in the Eastern Conference and they added a boost in Gasol to help them keep pace with conference frontrunner Milwaukee Bucks, who traded for Nikola Mirotic on Thursday.

Despite the fact that his name was mentioned in trade rumors for some time during the lead-up to the deadline, however, 3 p.m. came and went without Conley getting traded.
