Report: Grizzlies finalizing trade to send Marc Gasol to Raptors

Marc Gasol

The NBA trade deadline was expected to see several blockbuster deals, and one of the largest appears to include Memphis Grizzlies All-Star center Marc Gasol.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Grizzlies are finalizing a trade that will send Gasol to the Toronto Raptors.

The 34-year-old Gasol had been linked to and had drawn interest from several other Eastern Conference teams, but north of the boarder appears to be his immediate destination as the two teams took a trade call with the league in effort to finish the deal.

Gasol is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and a career-high 4.7 assists this season, which is second in the league for centers behind only Denver’s Nikola Jokic (7.7).

While Gasol has spent his entire career in Memphis, the team is in a rebuilding mode and felt both sides would be better off with a fresh start. He will now get to play for a team that is a legitimate NBA title contender.
