Memphis Grizzlies: 4 takeaways from the 2019 NBA Trade Deadline

Toronto Raptors Acquire Marc Gasol In Trade With Memphis Grizzlies

That, however, didn't stop him from connecting with Gasol after he was traded for Jonas Valanciunas, C.J. Miles, Delon Wright and a second-round pick on Thursday.

Davis and the team agreed that his minutes would be reduced and that Davis would consult with the Pelicans on which ends of back-to-backs he will play in the rest of the season, sources told ESPN.

Gasol isn't playing tonight against the Timberwolves, further amplifying all of the trade chatter surrounding the Grizzlies.

Head coach Nick Nurse said he believes Gasol's experience will give the Raptors "a settling force" come playoff time.

The six-time All-Star was on the court for the first time since making a trade request almost two weeks ago. Moving forward, Memphis has added a few young pieces and moved a decent-sized contract in Gasol in the process.

The complex on the edge of the city was blocked off to the press, with dozens of reporters and TV crews waiting outside the gates. Jefferson Rodrigues, who runs a small inn near the club, said he had reached a 15-year-old player he had befriended.

Gasol has career averages of 15.2 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.5 blocked shots a game for the Grizzlies. He was a part of a core group of players that helped shape the identity of this franchise on and off the court and were embraced by the City of Memphis. The amount of his bonus (if not waived) will be applied to his $24.1 million salary. Mike Conley is averaging 20.3 points and 6.4 assists while Jaren Jackson Jr.is averaging 13.9 points and 4.8 rebounds. New Orleans gives up an average of 120 points per game in those outings, which is worse than their full season mark of 116.9 points a contest.

Gasol also has a $25.6 million player option for next season. He had surgery after suffering a dislocated left thumb on December 12 and has not played since.

Valanciunas, Wright and Miles can become free agents next season.

Ujiri said some of the minor moves were made to get the luxury tax line down in advance of potential buyouts. The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 100.3 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 103.6 points on 44.9 percent shooting.
