Playoff Push: Raptors Deal Fan Favourite Jonas Valanciunas For Marc Gasol

Johnson, 22, was the eighth overall pick in the 2015 draft.

Now, team president Masai Ujiri hopes Toronto isn't done yet.

The Toronto Raptors are reportedly finalizing a deal that will ship yet another fan favourite out.

The person spoke Thursday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the National Basketball Association has not held the trade call.

"The Spurs offered me the same thing (contractually) as Charlotte, but it was more about the role", Parker said, during an interview with L'Espresso.

The combination means Gasol should be able to replace Valanciunas, Wright and Miles on offence.

The Clippers also waived center Marcin Gortat, who averaged 5.0 points and 5.6 rebounds in 47 games.

Gasol is one of eight players to average at least 10 points and six rebounds for each of the 11 seasons since the start of the 2008-09 year, according to Opta. With an excess of young big men, the Magic likely won't want to spend the money it'll take to retain Vucevic, especially after signing Aaron Gordon last summer.

To go along with his scoring, Gasol is an excellent passer. Miles was averaging less than 15 minutes per game. "The trade also provides us with an opportunity to continue to develop two promising young players while giving us future flexibility".

Kyle Lowry appears to be one of those players, but the Raptors starting point guard is taking everything in stride.

"I've been in rumours so many times I don't even look at it", said Valanciunas, as reported by TSN's Josh Lewenberg. Or, perhaps, Gasol comes off the bench.

Conley was asked about his preferences after several reports saying he had made it clear he would prefer a trade to an Eastern Conference team.

The Raptors are doing all they can to get to the NBA Finals this season, but you already knew that.
