The Charlotte Hornets and Memphis Grizzlies were close to a trade of Marc Gasol, but it was derailed by some last-minute haggling.

The Hornets were prepared to trade a lottery protected first round pick for Gasol.

The Grizzlies eventually traded Gasol to the Toronto Raptors. Memphis acquired Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, C.J. Miles and a 2024 second round pick.
