The final hurdle for the salary dump of Memphis Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay to the Toronto Raptors hinges on finding a third team to absorb the expiring contract of Raptors guard Jose Calderon, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Rudy Gay is averaging 17.2 points and 5.9 boards this season. (USA Today Sports)The Grizzlies have inquired with multiple teams over the past several days, searching for a willing partner to facilitate a three-team deal, sources said.

Despite organizational proclamations to the contrary, new Memphis ownership and management is determined to unload Gay and the $37 million owed him as soon as possible, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Quote:
Preferably, the Grizzlies want a less expensive small forward to plug into the lineup for Gay, sources said. Memphis has been relentless in shopping Gay over the past several weeks.

In a proposed deal, Memphis would likely receive another young Raptors player and a future draft pick, sources said. The Grizzlies have unsuccessfully tried to pry Raptors rookie Terrence Ross as part of the deal, sources said. Toronto has deemed Ross untouchable in these talks.
I'm thinking we must be sending them DeRozan then.....

Happy Ross is untouchable. Mixed feelings on possibly moving DeMar.

Well this is a relief...

They can take Caldy, DeRozan and a 2nd if they want a pick. That's the most I'd do.

EDIT: Looks like I got beat to it. Quick fingers guys!

Rudy Gay is a more expensive, better version of Demar. Demar IMO is not that huge of a loss since I don't see his game fitting well with a successful team until he adds more range and becomes a better shooter/defender.

I would hope both ED and Ross aren't going anywhere. But it seems BC isn't that fond of Ed as a future piece, hence his name continuing to leak in trade talks.

One problem with trading Davis is his work ethic.

Now I have never seen him practice or anything, but he must have clearly put in a ton of work over the summer to improve his shooting as much as he has. If he can have one more summer where he improves some aspect of his game, he is going to be a very good player.

What if BC's master plan is to get both Josh Smith and Rudy Gay here?

BC has no plan
Just throws a bunch of stuff at the wall and hopes it sticks.

lol this exactly.. If this trade goes down then the stuff will hit the fan. More treadmill for the Raps and no chance at Wiggins next year.

Demar for Gay would definitely be an upgrade, as Rudy is more established and brings a bit more to the table than Demar. I would be completely fine with DeRozan+Calderon+2nd.

Get er done BC!!

Haven't been following the Raps as closely now that hockey is back, but are these Rudy Gay rumors a reality? It's been talked about pretty much since the off-season, but these rumors seem to have a lot more clout now. Should I realistically expect Gay in a Raps uniform this season?

Whether it's weak or strong doesn't deny the fact that it is a plan.

This is his plan. He wants two above average players for one year in hopes of entertaining the fans and signing an extension. This is a masterful plan to continue the mediocrity of the Raptors' franchise.

I have no problems moving Derozan and a pick for Gay. Rudy is much better player then DD, I hate to see Jose go but KL deserves his shot to take over the starting job again imo.

Acquiring Gay for ED+filler leaves us with very little cap space for the next few years. So we'd be going to war with Bargnani+Gay+Derozan against the rest of the east. I don't like our chances. BC shouldn't be allowed to make trades just to save his job.

DeRo would most likely be going the other way in trade for Gay.

Thats what we'd prefer, but his name wasn't mentioned in any of the rumors. Memphis probably doesn't like the idea of paying him 40 million over 4 years. Memphis can't spend too much money

What exactly is the ultimate goal of this franchise? Is it to win a championship? If so, then trading for Gay will secure that we will NEVER win a title with this core. You think you can beat Miami with Lowry/Gay/Val as our core? We should be looking to hang a championship banner in Toronto, not a division winner banner, if we are lucky enough to even do that with this horrible team.

At this rate, we are headed for the worst place in the conference, the bottom playoff seeds with zero chance of winning the lottery and zero chance of beating Miami.

In the team's defense, I don't think any team will beat Miami in the East until LeBron leaves or Wade completely regresses to an almost useless player.

Fair enough but even going for that 2nd seed would be very very very unlikely. Trying to beat out Chicago, New York or Brooklyn would be almost impossible with Rudy Gay as our go to option.

Yeah I know. Only thing the team would accomplish is advancing to the 2nd round.
