Marc Gasol has officially joined the Toronto Raptors

Marc Gasol

He was averaging 15.7 points and 8.6 rebounds per game with Memphis and will make the 41-16 Raptors that much tougher.

Gasol came off the bench and had 7 points and 6 rebounds in 19 minutes. The three-time All-Star entered late in the first quarter and made a hook shot on his first try.

He has been linked with a move to the New York Knicks, the LA Clippers as well as the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Knicks' Kadeem Allen had a career-high 14 points.

The Knicks closed within 99-96 on Knox's 3-pointer with 1:59 left.

Leonard spent some time in the NY area a year ago away from the Spurs while rehabbing.

The Knicks have cap room for two max players this July.


He talked about the vivacious Garden crowd, which cheered him during pregame intros after which he had an off night - shooting 4-of-15 for 11 points in a 104-99 Raptors win.

He credited the home crowd for supporting a team that dropped to a league-worst 10-45. "That's what you want from an organization that you're playing for".

"Just playing the season right now".

Of course, coach Nurse must also be very pleased about the production "Big Spain" will bring to the team.

"Basically he is a great passer, someone who sees the next play a split-second before most of the opponents, most of the teammates as well, most of the coaches".

Following their matchup with the Knicks, Toronto will be back in action Monday at home against the Brooklyn Nets.
