Rick Zamperin: Toronto Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri is going all in

Rumors: Pacers made an offer for Mike Conley

The person spoke Thursday to the AP on condition of anonymity because the National Basketball Association has not held the trade call. That, however, didn't stop him from connecting with Gasol after he was traded for Jonas Valanciunas, C.J. Miles, Delon Wright and a second-round pick on Thursday. The 76ers and Bucks also made major moves ahead of the trade deadline, with Philly landing Tobias Harris and Milwaukee getting Nikola Mirotic. The 2013 NBA Defensive Player of the Year has career averages of 15.2 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.5 blocks, while twice being named to the All-NBA team. He had surgery after suffering a dislocated left thumb on December 12 and has not played since. A player of Gasol's caliber doesn't become available often.

After trading star player Marc Gasol to the Toronto Raptors, the owner of the Memphis Grizzlies Robert Pera said Friday the team consider retiring the center's No. 33 jersey some day in the future.

"I've been in rumours so many times I don't even look at it", Valanciunas said. Yes, they offered me something similar, but I did not want to finish assistant-coach. Currently, the Raptors sit at the 2nd spot in the Eastern Conference.

Question marks are what the Raptors are all about.

76ers acquire Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic in major trade with Clippers
Many felt he had a legitimate case to make the All-Star team for the first time in his career. The Heat's 2021 unprotected first-rounder, in particular, is a big-time pick-up.

While averaging just under 19 minutes a game this season, Valanciunas, 26, has posted a career-high 12.8 points per game, and pulls down 7.2 rebounds per contest. He was selected by the Raptors in the first round of the 2015 NBA Draft. Miles, 31, has been a disappointment, scoring just 5.5 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 0.6 assists per game. He was in his second season in Toronto, having joined the team during the 2017 off-season.
