NBA Trade Deadline: Raptors reportedly trade Greg Monroe to Nets

NBA Trade Deadline: Raptors reportedly trade Greg Monroe to Nets

Memphis chose to hold onto franchise point guard Mike Conley - he was also informed last month a trade was possible - as the Raptors made another bold move created to keep Toronto on the heels of the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference.

The Grizzlies reportedly will receive Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, CJ Miles, and a 2024 second-round pick in exchange for Gasol. Both teams have yet to confirm the deal. Thats going to be the tough part.” Raptors head coach Nick Nurse also discussed Gasol, who is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and a career-high 4.7 assists this season, after the game: "I think that there's a lot of positives with a guy like Gasol, and I think majority come with being battle-tested", Nurse said. He spent 11 seasons with the Grizzlies and is the franchise's all-time leader in points, rebounds, blocks and made field goals.

Miles, 31, has been a disappointment, scoring just 5.5 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 0.6 assists per game.

Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol (33) shoots a three point shot from the corner during a game against the Denver Nuggets at FedExForum.

Memphis ended up making several deals though none involved Conley.

Valanciunas, 26, was drafted by the Raptors in the first round (fifth overall) of the 2011 National Basketball Association entry draft and is in his seventh season with the team. Any player put on the market by then can suit up for Toronto in the playoffs as long as they are signed on or before the last day of the NBA's regular season. Of his first six selections, five will become free agents at season's end.
