The team values him as a mentor for rookie Jaren Jackson Jr., and Conley was not eager to be dealt, a separate ESPN report added.

The Raptors are second in the Eastern Conference and they added a boost in Gasol to help them keep pace with conference frontrunner Milwaukee Bucks, who traded for Nikola Mirotic on Thursday.

Gasol is one of eight players to average at least 10 points and six rebounds for each of the 11 seasons since the start of the 2008-09 year, according to Opta.

Valanciunas is averaging 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds this season with the Raptors.

The Memphis Grizzlies have reportedly decided on a trade featuring All-Star big man Marc Gasol.

The 31-year-old Miles is averaging 5.5 points and 1.7 rebounds in the 2018-19 campaign.

After over a decade manning the middle, endearing himself to an entire city for what he did both on and off the court, Marc Gasol is now a Toronto Raptor.

Once the captains got down to the real serious business and all was said and done, Raptors stars Kyle Lowry and Kawhi Leonard found themselves as opponents, as the former was selected as a reserve for Team Giannis, while LeBron used one of his starter selections to pick Kawhi. Valanciunas and Miles have player options, and Wright will become a restricted free agent. 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. He is owed $67 million over the next two seasons, including an early termination option in 2020-21, and is expected to draw interest as a trade target after the season.
