They won just 22 games last season without Randolph and Allen, and Conley out most of the season with an injured heel.
Gasol has played his entire career with the Grizzlies since entering the National Basketball Association in 2008.
It's a big trade, both literally and figuratively, with the Raptors sending 7-foot centre Jonas Valanciunas to the Grizzlies in exchange for 7-foot-1 centre Marc Gasol. "The trade also provides us with an opportunity to continue to develop two promising young players while giving us future flexibility".
Washington lost point guard John Wall for 2018-19 earlier this season as he elected to have surgery to remove bone spurs in his left heel.
Gasol first signed with the Grizzlies back in 2008, and during his tenure with the team, he was able to lead Memphis to numerous playoff victories.
"The Spurs offered me the same thing (contractually) as Charlotte, but it was more about the role", Parker said, during an interview with L'Espresso.
Bud Light's corn syrup Super Bowl ad prompts response from competition

The 34-year-old center is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists over 53 games with the Grizzlies this season. In his 11 seasons with Memphis, Gasol became the franchise leader in points, rebounds, blocks and field goals made. "I'm sure if they were going to trade me, they'd say, 'Hey, Kyle, this is what's on the table'". It seems the trade demands for Memphis make this deal unlikely to happen. Valanciunas was averaging 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds at the time of his injury.
Valanciunas will be paired with Jaren Jackson Jr. for the long haul.
Valanciunas had been expected to return to the court Thursday after missing 25 games with an injured thumb. We have a good team.
Miles, in his 14th campaign, has struggled with the Raptors this season.
