Delon Wright, C.J. Miles getting traded to Memphis for Marc Gasol

He has to report and have a physical, and Valanciunas, Miles and Wright have to report to Memphis to do the same.

The trade comes after a flurry of activity in the Eastern Conference that saw several potential playoff opponents of the Raptors make moves to bolster their squads.

He obliged. It was Ujiri's biggest trade-deadline deal since he returned to the team as GM in 2013. "Obviously he had little battles with his back and he's trying to get back to where he was before, and I think maybe we should take time and acknowledge that from when we came here, and this is all credit to him", he said.

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.

Of all the teams that were interested in Marc Gasol, the Toronto Raptors were the best option for him, as a player.


Kyle Lowry is fully aware of the speculation and uncertainty surrounding his future with the Toronto Raptors but says he hopes to stay with the team.

The 76ers and Bucks were both big players before Thursday's 3 p.m. ET deadline, the Sixers landing Tobias Harris and Milwaukee acquiring Nikola Mirotic. He had surgery after suffering a dislocated left thumb on December 12 and has not played since.

The 26-year-old Wright, who was selected by Toronto in the first round of the 2015 draft, is averaging 6.9 points, 2.2 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 18.3 minutes of action per game this season.

The seven-foot-one Spaniard, who played all 11 of his National Basketball Association seasons in Memphis, is slated to make US$24.1 million this season and has a player option for $25.6 million next season. Miles, 31, has been a disappointment, scoring just 5.5 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 0.6 assists per game.
