Gasol joins Kawhi Leonard, victor of the 2015 and 2016 Defensive Player Awards, on a 40-16 Raptors squad that through yesterday's games is one of the only teams in the National Basketball Association to rank in the top 10 in both offense and defense.

With the end of the trade deadline comes the next big stage for the Toronto Raptors, which is looking at the buyout market for upgrades on what is now a depleted roster.

Gasol, the 2013 Defensive Player of the Year, is averaging 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists through 53 games this season. Wright is a nice wing to add, and extra picks are never bad, but a second-rounder from the Raptors isn't exactly that exciting.

But many were also outraged on social media and wanted the authorities to cancel the Miss Curvy Uganda competition all together. Most tourists visit Uganda to tour national parks for diverse wildlife species such as gorillas, birds and other animals.

"I don't understand why Mike is in those talks", Gasol told the Memphis Commercial Appeal. While Gasol and Conley were both hot-button topics over recent days, many believed the veteran center would be heading to the Charlotte Hornets.

After the Milwaukee Bucks - acquiring Nikola Mirotic - and Philadelphia 76ers - picking up Tobias Harris - made big moves to try and bolster their status atop the Eastern Conference, it appears the Raptors felt the pressure to jump into the arms race. Miles, Delon Wright and a second-round pick.

The 2019 National Basketball Association trade deadline is really kicking into gear.
