What does Marc Gasol bring to the Toronto Raptors?

Ricky Rubio involved in potential trade between Jazz and Grizzlies

The 34-year-old center is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists over 53 games with the Grizzlies this season. Gasol has been linked to several teams, most notably the Charlotte Hornets.

The trade still must be approved by the National Basketball Association. They dealt pending unrestricted free agent Reggie Bullock to the Lakers Tuesday night and shipped Stanley Johnson to the Bucks Wednesday morning, but owner Tom Gores made it clear last week he wants the team to make a playoff push. Unlike Ibaka, he's also developed into a reliable threat from 3-point range.

Portland is expected to make Harkless available, according to sources, as well as the team's first-round pick.

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. I just want to go on the court and play ball and win games. He scores, he rebounds, he passes, he even shoots threes.

Sam Amick and Tony Jones of The Athletic both reported that the Pacers have been in contact with the Memphis Grizzlies about Conley. He's now averaging 4.7 assists per game, the highest mark of his career and the second-most among centres this season behind only Nikola Jokic.

Miles, in his 14th campaign, has struggled with the Raptors this season.

The combination means Gasol should be able to replace Valanciunas, Wright and Miles on offence. Given how the DeMar DeRozan trade went down, its hardly surprising the All-Star is keeping one eye open just in case he is moved.

Gasol has been with the Grizzlies for 11 seasons, which was tied with Russell Westbrook for the fourth-longest tenure with one franchise among active players.

"I've been in rumours so many times I don't even look at it", Valanciunas said.
