CJ Miles and Delon Wright will also be going to Memphis.

According to Sports Illustrated's Jake Fischer, talks between Memphis and the Charlotte Hornets surrounding a deal for Gasol fell short of being completed on Tuesday night, opening the door for Toronto to make a move.

"He came here and I just remember those days, there was nearly a trade with NY at the time (when the Raptors were going to tank for Andrew Wiggins or Joel Embiid), for him to accomplish being a five-time all-star, I think is a hell of an accomplishment on his part, and the work he put in to the game".

A fan favourite in Toronto, Valanciunas showed flashes of promise with the Raptors but never fully materialized into a dominant centre.

This is kind of the question after the Raptors acquired Marc Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies at the trade deadline Thursday in a deal first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

"I think that there's a lot of positives with a guy like Gasol, and I think majority come with being battle-tested", Nurse said.

Emiliano Sala remembered by footballers after body found in plane wreckage
The plane had been en route to Cardiff from Nantes , France when it vanished from radars near the Channel Islands. Dorset Police have now confirmed that a coroner has officially identified the body as the former Nantes striker.

Gasol, 34, is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and a career-high 4.7 assists (which ranks second among National Basketball Association centers, trailing only Nikola Jokic's 7.7).

The 34-year-old center leaves the Grizzlies as the all-time leader in points, blocks, and minutes played. Especially considering how much pressure they're under to go on a deep playoff run - something that could be vital if they want to convince Kawhi Leonard to stay. "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", Pera said in a statement.

Miles, who turns 32 in March, is averaging 10 points per game off the bench for Toronto. He's under contract until the end of next season, earning $25.6 million. The 7-foot big man had surgery for a dislocated thumb December 12, and hasn't played in a contest since his procedure.

Valanciunas, 26, has missed Toronto's last 25 games with a thumb injury, but was scheduled to return to the lineup tonight in Atlanta.

Also, adding a player like Gasol would probably increase the chances of re-signing Walker when he hits free agency over the summer. The 6-6 swingman is averaging 5.5 points.
