Grizzlies manager Chris Wallace explains team’s moves after Gasol

The Toronto Raptors are finalizing a deal that would send three players and a draft pick to Memphis for Marc Gasol, ESPN is reporting.

That wasn't the only deal the Grizzlies made, as management was busy, pulling off four deals in total and one big "no deal", electing to hold onto to Conley instead of deal him to the long-rumored Utah Jazz or Detroit Pistons.

Overall, it will be hard to see Gasol in anything other than a Memphis uniform, especially after the way the season started, but keep in mind, this can the chance for him to get the ring he deserves.

Jose Calderon picked up a lot of assists while playing for the Toronto Raptors - 4,288 regular season dimes and another 67 in the playoffs to be exact.

In a separate deal, the Raptors traded veteran center Greg Monroe and a 2021 second-round pick to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for cash considerations.

The 34-year-old center leaves the Grizzlies as the all-time leader in points, blocks, and minutes played.

JJJ has averaged 36 minutes without Marc Gasol, so this is a flawless time to note that without Gasol in the lineup his per-36 averages are 18.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.2 dimes, 1.3 steals, 2.4 blocks and 1.1 threes.

Valanciunas has been out since mid-December with a thumb injury but was going to make his return Thursday night against the Atlanta Hawks.
