Raptors finalizing deal to acquire Gasol from Memphis

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. That Raptors team was swept by Cleveland in the second round of the playoffs.

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

"The Spurs offered me the same thing (contractually) as Charlotte, but it was more about the role", Parker said, during an interview with L'Espresso. After a bit of a slow start to the day, we've got our first really big trade of the day.

In a separate deal, the Raptors traded veteran center Greg Monroe and a 2021 second-round pick to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for cash considerations.

In just under 20 minutes per game, Lin is averaging 10.6 points and 3.5 assists on 46.5 per cent shooting (32.5 per cent from three-point range) this season.

The 31-year-old hits 38 per cent of his three-pointers on 3.8 attempts per game for his career, and he's shot at least 35 per cent from distance in all but one of his 10 National Basketball Association seasons.

The Raptors are now second in the Eastern Conference with a record of 39-16, while the Grizzlies rank among the worst in the league at 22-23. The 76ers and Bucks also made major moves ahead of the trade deadline, with Philly landing Tobias Harris and Milwaukee getting Nikola Mirotic. Moving forward, Memphis has added a few young pieces and moved a decent-sized contract in Gasol in the process. Conley is third at 12 seasons. The amount of his bonus (if not waived) will be applied to his $24.1 million salary. The 34-year-old big man has a player option for next season which comes with a cap hit of more than $25.59 million, per Spotrac. The 7-foot big man had surgery for a dislocated thumb December 12, and hasn't played in a contest since his procedure.
