Marc Gasol's imminent trade is the worst-kept secret in the National Basketball Association.
The Raptors are planning to deal away their former fifth overall draft pick (2011) Jonas Valanciunas along with Delon Wright and C.J. Miles to Memphis.
The Grizzlies, however, kept Mike Conley after discussing deals for their franchise point guard with multiple teams. "We look forward to welcoming Marc to our city and team".
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.
Bryce Harper prefers to play on West Coast
I am starting a petition for the other 28 teams in the Major League Baseball to offer this man a contract to keep him out of NY . Bryce Harper met with the San Francisco Giants this week, adding a new wrinkle to his market - and perhaps an enticing one.
Head coach Nick Nurse said he believes Gasol's experience will give the Raptors "a settling force" come playoff time.
Gasol has been with the Grizzlies for 11 seasons, which was tied with Russell Westbrook for the fourth-longest tenure with one franchise among active players.
Though he's now in the twilight of his career, the three-time All-Star is having a nice season in Memphis, averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 4.7 assists.
The other goal in these moves is to play well enough over the season's final 26 games to convey this year's first round pick, a top 8 protected pick, to Boston and get a clean slate.

The statement did not say whether she had had access to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul , as she had requested. But I think wisdom has to prevail, and people have to let the legal process play out", he said.
The 34-year-old Gasol is making $24.1 million this season and has a player option worth $25.6 million for next season.
Owner Robert Pera issued a statement Friday morning after the franchise confirmed the trade netting Memphis a trio of players and a second-round draft pick in the 2024 draft.
Valanciunas has been out since mid-December with a thumb injury but was going to make his return Thursday night against the Atlanta Hawks. Anthony Davis contributes a team high 29.3 points, 13.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 2.56 blocks and 1.71 steals per contest.
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.
