Delon Wright, C.J. Miles getting traded to Memphis for Marc Gasol

The first of the two deals, both reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski will bring Los Angeles Clippers guard Avery Bradley to town in exchange for JaMychal Green and Garrett Temple.

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.

The 34-year-old center is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists over 53 games with the Grizzlies this season.

Memphis chose to hold onto franchise point guard Mike Conley - he was also informed last month a trade was possible - as the Raptors made another bold move created to keep Toronto on the heels of the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference.

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

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

Last month, teammate Marc Gasol - who was reportedly traded Thursday to the Toronto Raptors - expressed frustration that Conley was on the trading block.

The Raptors selected Wright with a first-round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Owner Robert Pera issued a statement Friday morning after the franchise confirmed the trade netting Memphis a trio of players and a second-round draft pick in the 2024 draft.

It's a bit surprising that this was all they were able to get back for Gasol, but the big man is clearly past his prime and could opt-in to a player option for next season for $25 million.
