Memphis Grizzlies' Mike Conley Prefers To Be Traded To The Eastern Conference

Memphis Grizzlies' Mike Conley Prefers To Be Traded To The Eastern Conference

Valanciunas was tied with Kyle Lowry as the Raptors' longest-tenured player, making his debut during the 2012-13 season after being selected fifth overall in the 2011 draft. They dealt pending unrestricted free agent Reggie Bullock to the Lakers Tuesday night and shipped Stanley Johnson to the Bucks Wednesday morning, but owner Tom Gores made it clear last week he wants the team to make a playoff push.

The Toronto Raptors have reportedly agreed to a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies that will send veteran center Marc Gasol north of the border in exchange for Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, CJ Miles and a 2024 second-round pick. The Raptors (39-16) currently sit in second place in the Eastern Conference standings and are in win-now mode with no guarantee Kawhi Leonard re-signs this offseason.

Rubio is either cool as they come with regards to the business side of the National Basketball Association, i.e. perpetual trade talk and maneuvering, or he's a man who knows he's not going anywhere. "I don't think there's one thing I can say or do [to change that], you know what I mean?"

Miles, in his 14th campaign, has struggled with the Raptors this season.

A three-time All-Star and the 2013 Defensive Player of the Year, Gasol has a 15 percent trade bonus that is valued at $1.28 million. He scores, he rebounds, he passes, he even shoots threes. Four more players from that 13-man roster are also now all former Raptors: Wright, Jakob Poeltl, Lorenzo Brown and Bebe Nogueira. Originally drafted in the second round by the Jazz out of high school in 2005, the 6-foot-5 wing player had played for Utah (2005-12), Cleveland (2012-14) and in (2014-17) before signing a three-year deal with Toronto last offseason.

"I personally want to be in Toronto", Lowry said, per The Athletic. Either not much, or that was an excellent poker face he displayed.
