Former Raptors star helps welcome Marc Gasol to Toronto

Let’s get it

"I gave it my all (in Memphis)", Gasol said, according to Lewenberg.

Marc Gasol will make his Toronto Raptors debut as they take on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.

Gasol has spent his entire National Basketball Association career with the Grizzlies.

JV averaged 25.1 FanDuel points in 30 games (10 starts) for the Toronto Raptors before being traded last week. numberFire's models expect him to record 16.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.6 steals, and 1.7 blocks per game over the remainder of the year.

"Jose was one of the first guys to reach out (and tell me) how much I'm going to love the organization and the city and he was very excited", Gasol told reporters on Saturday. He was just 16 when his brother Pau was drafted by the Grizzlies in 2001, and the entire Gasol family made the move from Barcelona to the southern US city.

The three-time All-Star also mentioned the familiarity he has with former Memphis Grizzlies teammate Kyle Lowry, former Spanish National Team teammate Serge Ibaka and the multiple playoff runs he had against Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green.

"It's not as emotional probably". You understand the chance you have coming from a team that hasn't made the playoffs last year and more likely than not this year as well, having a chance to be back (in the post-season), you know how much it means.

Gasol's wife works in Memphis, and so will move to Toronto in about a month with their two kids, aged two and four.
