While the basketball world waits with baited breath to find out Anthony Davis' fate, the Memphis Grizzlies have been quietly looking for trade partners to offload one of their top players: point guard Mike Conley.

New Orleans only chose to play Davis after the league reminded the franchise of the rest rule, wherever the team could be levied a $100,000 fine per game that he Saturday Memphis dealt away Gasol and almost shifted Conley but couldn't get teams to meet their demands.

Last January, Jackson said Trump's health was "excellent" compared to other 71-year-old American men in health results. It remained unclear how numerous test results would eventually be made public.


Davis and the team agreed that his minutes would be reduced and that Davis would consult with the Pelicans on which ends of back-to-backs he will play in the rest of the season, sources told ESPN. They added an elite centre in Marc Gasol, and according to Masai Ujiri they are not done adding pieces for the playoff run.

Fortunately for the Raptors, they have made it known that any player brought in will get an opportunity to play for a contending team.

The 34-year-old center leaves the Grizzlies as the all-time leader in points, blocks, and minutes played. The 76ers and Bucks also made major moves ahead of the trade deadline, with Philly landing Tobias Harris and Milwaukee getting Nikola Mirotic. He is the only player in franchise history to be named to the All-NBA First Team (2014-15) and Second Team (2012-13) and was selected to a franchise-record three NBA All-Star Games (2012, 2015, 2017), starting the 2015 NBA All-Star Game opposite his older brother, Pau Gasol. Conley is third at 12 seasons. Prior to the trade, the Raptors had expected the center to return against Atlanta on Thursday night, with the team tweeting out a picture of Valanciunas with a quote from him saying, "I'm back".
