Marc Gasol

  • Marc Gasol - C - Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol took a bit of a backseat on Wednesday night, though he was still able to post seven points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 19 minutes off the bench.

    Gasol missed a few easy looks tonight that he'd normally drill, and there was one confusing possession where he spun his way to an open dunk before kicking the ball out to the corner. Other than that, he really should've had at least five assists tonight — the Raptors struggled to hit their shots during Gasol's second quarter run — and he also ate Bradley Beal's lunch with two blocks in the second half, including one where he basically palmed a driving Beal to the ground. We'd expect Gasol to start at center eventually here, and the upcoming break will give him a chance to get familiar with his new teammates and playbook.

  • Marc Gasol - C - Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol came off the bench again on Monday and scored 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Gasol's effiiciency is something we've missed due to his increased 3-point attempts, but so far in two games he's only attempted one shot from beyond the arc. It would be a welcome sight and even a a boost to his value if he could tone down the shots from deep and stick to playing as a traditional big man. In limited minutes he's produced solid value across the board so owners should be excited, especially since there's no shutdown risk now in Toronto.

  • Marc Gasol - C - Toronto Raptors

    Nick Nurse says that he hasn't decided on a starting lineup and could keep the frontcourt rotation fluid going forward.

    Marc Gasol came off the bench in his team debut on Saturday, but that had a lot to do with easing him into a new situation. We'd imagine that he settles in as a full-time starter sooner rather than later, which means that the Raptors will have to send one of Serge Ibaka, Pascal Siakam or Danny Green to the bench. Toronto was able to play a bit of the matchup game with Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas earlier in the year so he's the likeliest to head to the second unit, although Siakam's playmaking would do the most to lift up bench groups. The Raptors have plenty of options and fantasy owners should expect Gasol, Ibaka and Siakam to produce a little less than usual while they figure it all out.

  • Marc Gasol - C - Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol scored seven points on 3-of-7 shooting with six rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in 19 minutes off the bench in his Raptors debut on Saturday against the Knicks.

    It will be interesting to see whether Gasol's minutes get clipped in a crowded frontcourt rotation, but he should be plenty productive whether he starts or comes off the bench. If he plays in the 25 mpg range, look for efficiencies to increase but a dip into the early middle rounds is probably where he lands in that scenario.

  • Marc Gasol - C - Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol will make his Raptors debut on Saturday and come off the bench.

    Coach Nick Nurse said Gasol will come off the bench for the first game, at least, but the situation will be fluid. It sounds like the Raptors want a similar three-man rotation that Jonas Valanciunas was a part of. One of Pascal Siakam, Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol will be coming off the bench. Time will tell how the rotation pans out.

  • Marc Gasol - C - Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol (trade) was in Toronto this morning for his physical and could make his Raptors debut in Saturday's game versus the Knicks.

    Gasol will likely be thrust into the starting lineup. Serge Ibaka and Paskal Siakam's value will take a small bump, with Ibaka likely moving to the bench.

  • Marc Gasol - C - Toronto Raptors

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Grizzlies are finalizing a deal to send Marc Gasol to the Raptors in return for Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, C.J. Miles and a 2024 second-round pick.

    Wow, the arms race in the East continues. This is likely less than Memphis originally wanted for the Spanish big man, but his age and contract are big factors in his trade value. Gasol will lose a few touches in Toronto and could sit a few games for rest which will hurt his value. He'll take JV's spot in the three-way rotation with Pascal Siakam and Serge Ibaka. Both Siakam and Ibaka will see a noticeable drop since JV had been out for a while before this trade. One of them will need to move to the bench as a result of this deal, and while they figure to remain productive whenever they're on the floor at least one player will have to make that sacrifice.
