The Toronto Raptors will acquire Marc Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies, according to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

In return, Toronto will send Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, CJ Miles and a future second round pick to Memphis.

Gasol, the 2013 Defensive Player of the Year, is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists through 53 games this season. He has recorded 18 double-doubles this season and recorded a 22-point, 17-rebound, 10-assist triple-double on Jan. 23.

The 34-year-old has a one year remaining on a five-year $110 million contract he signed in 2015. Gasol has a player option for the 2019-20 season that would see him earn over $25 million.

Valanciunas, who has been sidelined for the past 25 games with a thumb injury, is averaging 12.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 30 games this season (10 starts). He would reportedly be leaving Toronto after spending the first 6.5 years of his career with the Raptors. Over 470 career games with Toronto (444 starts), the 26-year-old averaged 11.8 points and 8.4 rebounds.

Wright, who was selected 20th overall by the Raptors in the 2015 draft, is averaging 6.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game this year. 14-year veteran CJ Miles has come on strong as of late and is averaging 5.5 points through 40 games this season.

Toronto returns to action Thursday as it seeks its third straight win and a season sweep of Atlanta. The Grizzlies are in Oklahoma City and will take on the Thunder.
