Marc Gasol has officially joined the Toronto Raptors

Marc Gasol has officially joined the Toronto Raptors

VanVleet has a partially torn ligament in the thumb and will wear a splint for approximately three weeks before it is reevaluated. The Raptors would be the eighth National Basketball Association team Lin has played for in his career, which includes stops with the Warriors, Knicks, Rockets, Lakers, Hornets, Nets, and Hawks.

The Raptors star stonewalled questions about free agency following Saturday's 104-99 victory over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, refusing to discuss anything but the win.

"How many fans for the Raptors were in the stands", Gasol said. "So that makes things a lot easier because at the end of the day that's the answer that you're going to get".

They are planning to sign veteran guard Jeremy Lin after he completes his buyout negotiations with the Atlanta Hawks.

"We were playing in NY and you could already feel that energy", Gasol said.

JV averaged 25.1 FanDuel points in 30 games (10 starts) for the Toronto Raptors before being traded last week. numberFire's models expect him to record 16.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.6 steals, and 1.7 blocks per game over the remainder of the year. "And what you're playing for, it's exciting as well".

Based on his performance, it didn't appear to concern him very much at all. The three-time All-Star was a stalwart of Memphis' "Grit and Grind" era that saw the club make seven straight playoff appearances, including the Western Conference final in the 2012-13 season. Gasol was also named Defensive Player of the Year in 2013.

Although this is the first time that the 34-year-old Gasol has been traded in his 11-year career, the warm welcomes, guidance of others and familiar faces within the organization seem to be helping with his transition. "Memphis fans - we get some fans in the stands - but not as many as you guys, or "us" now".
