Memphis will receive Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, C.J. Miles and a 2024 second-round pick in return.

Toronto finalized a deal with Memphis to pick up the three-time All-Star, the team announced Thursday.

They traded Marc Gasol to the Toronto Raptors; Shelvin Mack to Atlanta; and Garrett Temple and JaMychal Green to the Clippers.

The Raptors pulled out all the stops ahead of the NBA's 3pm EST trade deadline on Thursday. The 76ers and Bucks also made major moves ahead of the trade deadline, with Philly landing Tobias Harris and Milwaukee getting Nikola Mirotic. Memphis added a few intriguing pieces and players who should make an immediate impact as well. The 34-year-old big man has a player option for next season which comes with a cap hit of more than $25.59 million, per Spotrac. The amount of his bonus (if not waived) will be applied to his $24.1 million salary.

Jonas Valanciunas had been sidelined since December 12 (Dec. 13, PHL time) with a dislocated left thumb.
