SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz haven't been involved in a trade yet — at least not one that's gone public — but former Beehive State players Delon Wright and C.J. Miles will reportedly have new NBA homes.
The former University of Utah star point guard and ex-Jazz shooting guard will both be sent to Memphis in part of a trade that will send center Marc Gasol to the Toronto Raptors, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Grizzlies will also receive Jonas Valanciunas and a 2024 second-round draft pick from Memphis in exchange for the 7-foot-1 big man. The Raptors are hopeful the addition of Gasol, a three-time All-Star who's averaging 18 points and eight rebounds, will give them even more firepower heading into the playoffs.
Wright has been with Toronto since being picked 20th overall by the Raptors out of Utah in 2015. The former second-team All-American is averaging 8.0 points, 2.9 asissts, 2.9 rebounds and 20 minutes this season in his third season as an NBA reserve.
Miles, who turns 32 in March, is averaging 10 points per game off the bench for Toronto. Originally drafted in the second round by the Jazz out of high school in 2005, the 6-foot-5 wing player had played for Utah (2005-12), Cleveland (2012-14) and Indiana (2014-17) before signing a three-year deal with Toronto last offseason.
