Pascal Siakam scored a career-high 33 points, Fred VanVleet added a career-best 30 and the Raptors rallied after trailing by 17 points in the first half to beat the Atlanta Hawks 119-101 on Thursday night. Toronto, which pulled within 1 1/2 games of Eastern Conference leader Milwaukee, acquired center Marc Gasol from Memphis before Thursday's trade deadline for Jonas Valanciunas, C.J. Miles and Delon Wright, and a 2024 second-round draft pick. The team should learn Friday when to expect Gasol's arrival.
The Toronto Raptors are finalizing a deal that would send three players and a draft pick to Memphis for Marc Gasol, ESPN is reporting. The Raptors are planning to deal away their former fifth overall draft pick (2011) Jonas Valanciunas along with Delon Wright and C.J. Miles to Memphis.
