The contenders in the Western Conference were largely quiet, but the top dogs in the East were busy this week. The Celtics could add someone via buyout, with some folks suggesting Enes Kanter being a possible match, but they're the only one of those four teams to stand pat as of now. Boston (+260) stood pat before the deadline.

Utah Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey and his brain trust have reportedly been aggressive in their attempts to upgrade the team's roster ahead of Wednesday's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

Wright, 26, is averaging 6.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 49 games this season.

The Philadelphia 76ers boosted their perimeter defense Thursday by acquiring veteran forward James Ennis from the Houston Rockets, according to multiple reports. "I just know one thing, we have a good team, we have a good future in front of us".

The Grizzlies have been shopping Gasol and star point guard Mike Conley for a month.

The Raptors are planning to deal away their former fifth overall draft pick (2011) Jonas Valanciunas along with Delon Wright and C.J. Miles to Memphis.

Gasol, 34, was in his 12th season with Memphis. As an assistant he had worked closely with Valanciunas over many years, often travelling overseas in the summer to see him.

Temple started 49 games for the Grizzlies this season, averaging career highs in points (9.4) and rebounds (3.1).

Gasol heads north of the border averaging 15.7 points with 8.6 rebounds per game.

In addition to trading Gasol, the Grizzlies traded Garrett Temple and JaMychal Green to the Los Angeles Clippers in a separate deadline-day deal, according to ESPN. However, they might not be able to find any trade partners before the deadline buzzer sounds due to their steep asking price for both veterans. Or, perhaps, Gasol comes off the bench.
