Raptors nearing deal for Marc Gasol

Raptors nearing deal for Marc Gasol

The Raptors are now sitting behind the Milwaukee Bucks in second place in the NBA's Eastern Conference. "I think it's amusing to say, as a coach-player deal, but I think we'll be friends for life man, for sure".

The deal came at an interesting time for the big Lithuanian, who was expected to be in Toronto's lineup for Thursday night's game in Atlanta after missing the previous 25 games with a dislocated left thumb. I don't think there's one thing I can say or do [to change that].

But the last time that Memphis traded a Gasol brother, it led to Pau Gasol's first championship in 2009, with the Los Angeles Lakers. The 76ers and Bucks have also made major moves as the trade deadline nears, with the Sixers landing Tobias Harris and Milwaukee getting Nikola Mirotic. That Raptors team was swept by Cleveland in the second round of the playoffs.

Valanciunas is averaging 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds while Wright is scoring 6.9 points per game and Miles is putting up 5.5 points. He had surgery after suffering a dislocated left thumb on December 12 and has not played since. The former second-team All-American is averaging 8.0 points, 2.9 asissts, 2.9 rebounds and 20 minutes this season in his third season as an National Basketball Association reserve. Of his first six selections, five will become free agents at season's end.

The North is also apparently demanding the inclusion of a multilateral peace treaty on the summit agenda. He said the USA has "contingencies" prepared in case negotiations fail, but did not give details.

Gasol has a $25.6 million player option for next season.

The Marc Gasol trade made it seem like it was only a matter of time before Mike Conley was going to leave Memphis. Over 470 career games with Toronto (444 starts), the 26-year-old averaged 11.8 points and 8.4 rebounds.

Teodosic has proven himself as a capable shooter when healthy (37.8 percent on threes since joining the NBA), but gambling on the 31-year-old staying healthy could dissuade the Raptors from pursuing him.
