Raptors finalizing trade with Grizzlies for Marc Gasol

Raptors guard Lowry I've never asked for a trade Amid reports of a potential trade to the Memphis Grizzlies Kyle Lowry says he would prefer to stay with the Toronto

Prior to the trade deadline, the Philadelphia 76ers acquired Tobias Harris, while the Milwaukee Bucks made a move for Nikola Mirotic. The team reportedly offered Kyle Lowry and Valanciunas to Memphis for he and Mike Conley earlier this week, a proposal that was quickly rebuffed by the Grizzlies.

According to reports, the Grizzlies will send multi-time All-Star big man Marc Gasol to the Toronto Raptors.

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. In 53 appearances this season, he's averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.2 blocks, and 1.1 steals while shooting 34.4 percent on 4.2 3-point attempts per game.

The trade deadline ends at 2 p.m. Thursday. It seems the trade demands for Memphis make this deal unlikely to happen.

Bulls Acquire Otto Porter From Wizards
Expect the Wizards to remain active through Thursday's deadline to shed more salary and get out of the tax entirely. He played his way out of the team's rotation shortly after Jim Boylen took over as the team's head coach.

Basically, it remains to be seen both where Big Spain fits in with the Raptors and how his offensive skills will be utilized.

Toronto Raptors centre Jonas Valanciunas is expected to play Thusday against the Atlanta Hawks after missing the last 25 games recovering from a dislocated thumb.

The Raptors are now second in the Eastern Conference with a record of 39-16, while the Grizzlies rank among the worst in the league at 22-23. 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. But adding Gasol to the mix will be a huge addition for the Raptors, who now have multiple winners of the NBA's Defensive Player of the Year award.
