Grizzlies offers fond farewell to Gasol

Grizzlies offers fond farewell to Gasol

The 34-year-old Spanish 7-footer (2.16m) has played for the Grizzlies since making his 2008 National Basketball Association debut but was moved to the contending Raptors at Thursday's league trade deadline.

That wasn't the only deal the Grizzlies made, as management was busy, pulling off four deals in total and one big "no deal", electing to hold onto to Conley instead of deal him to the long-rumored Utah Jazz or Detroit Pistons. Both teams have yet to confirm the deal.

Gasol, a second-round pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, will now get to play for a legitimate NBA Finals contender in the Raptors.

"Toronto is nearing an agreement to land Marc Gasol, league sources tell ESPN", he reports. After a bit of a slow start to the day, we've got our first really big trade of the day.

The Memphis Grizzlies may ultimately decide they would have more options to deal Conley closer to the draft.

There are several spots to be filled on the team's roster and the buyout market is where Toronto will try to round out a lineup that is expected to make a serious run for the franchise's first ever Eastern Conference title. Valanciunas and Miles have player options, and Wright will become a restricted free agent.

Memphis will keep guard Mike Conley following Thursday's trade deadline.

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.
