The Raptors’ Jonas Valanciunas tried to pick up the basketball to inbound it after a foul was called on the Thunder during their game in Oklahoma City on Wednesday night. That sounds like a pretty normal thing that happens many times in games. However, this time, Westbrook was holding the ball and he didn’t like that the big man was trying to take it out of his hands, so the OKC star flailed, popped up on his feet and got in the 7-footer’s face. Then, Steven Adams tried to defend him as a bunch of other players tried to prevent anything else from happening.
Among the teams that could make a move for Marc Gasol are Toronto, Cleveland, Boston, and Portland. The Celtics and Cavaliers are seen as the class of the East, with Toronto a notch below. That could set up a potential bidding war that Memphis could use to its advantage in landing the best package for Gasol, 32, a former defensive player of the year. Industry sources tell me that the Raptors are open to moving center Jonas Valanciunas and have young players the Griz might be interested in pursuing, including Jakob Poeltl and Lucas Nogueira. Gasol would be a marked upgrade for a “now” team that needs to get to a finals with core stars DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry.
Storyline: Jakob Poeltl Trade?
