Pau and Marc squaring off for the first time with Pau as a Bull ended up taking a back seat to the storylines of Jimmy Butler's continued stunning offensive prowess, Nikola Mirotic's 3-point marksmanship en route to his career-high 27 points and a defensive effort that held the Grizzlies to 39.4 percent shooting and no fast-break points until the final quarter. But their sibling rivalry never get old, particularly since Pau won his Rookie of the Year award here way back in 2002. "It's special to have the opportunity to play against your brother at the highest level of basketball," Pau said. "We're both doing pretty well so it's meaningful. It's a lot of pride involved. But it is a little weird. "We're both competitive. We don't like losing. As much as we love to see the other one play well, in these particular matchups, we're hoping the other one doesn't have a good game and your team wins. Ultimately, that's what we stand for."

A player that increasingly intrigues Raptors management is Memphis centre Marc Gasol. The Spaniard is a free agent this summer. The greatest lack on the Raptors roster is a truly dominant big man. Gasol is a Jungian figure that features prominently in GM Masai Ujiri’s bedside dream diary. Gasol, 29, has good fiduciary and competitive reasons to stay where he is, but it’s still the Western Conference. He might be great for five or six more years and never make it past the second round of the playoffs. Maybe Gasol can be convinced that he should take a free-agent discount in order to ride roughshod over the Eastern Conference for the foreseeable future. Toronto Globe & Mail

Cleveland is high on Koufos, we're told. They view his talent as a remedy to their lack of protection around the paint. However, beyond this season, a team is going to have to make a financial commitment. Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Teams around the league say they haven't received any trade calls and they see this as an indication that Prokhorov is back to selling the team, particularly since he's trying to move three of the biggest contracts on their roster," he says in a Bucher Buzz segment. He explains, "This for the uninitiated is what teams do. It's what the Memphis Grizzlies did, what the Detroit Pistons did. Any team looking to sell. One, there's not a lot of overhead. Two, they start with a blank slate. They get to create a team the way they see fit." NetsDaily
