A blockbuster trade is in the works and it doesn’t involve Boston, yet.
Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski has reported Memphis and Toronto are a third team away from sending Rudy Gay, and the three years and $37 million left on his contract, to the Raptors. This puts to an end the Rudy Gay for Paul Pierce trade rumors.
Since the Grizzles brought in new front office personnel, including former ESPN stat guru John Hollinger, the team has been working hard to get under the salary cap. They already traded three players and a first round pick to Cleveland and this latest deal should put them well under the cap.
(By the way, this is kind of nuts considering Memphis is currently sitting in the fourth spot in the West. Either Hollinger and the rest of the execs don’t think they can win it all or are willing to risk it seeing cap flexibility as more important.)
Woj says the Raptors are looking for a team to take on Jose Calderon’s expiring $10.5+ contract to make the deal work. Calderon...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Memphis Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors are actively discussing a trade involving forward Rudy Gay, according to an ESPN.com report. No framework has been established, however, and the Grizzlies maintain that they feel no pressure to deal Gay or another high-salaried player before the Feb. 21 trade deadline. "We really like our team," Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien told...
Jose Calderon was just traded to the Pistons as part of the 3-team Rudy Gay trade. What's interesting about the trade is that the Pistons didn't want Calderon to be their point guard. They were attracted to his expiring contract and the chance to dump Tayshaun Prince's rich deal for a couple more years. If it hasn't been done already, expect Calderon's agent and...
Former UConn Huskies small forward Rudy Gay has a new home in the NBA as his former team, the Memphis Grizzlies, has traded him to the Toronto Raptors in a three-team deal that also included the Detroit Pistons.
Here's how that trade breaks down:
Raptors get - Rudy Gay (Grizzlies), Hammed Haddadi (Grizzlies)
Grizzlies get - Ed Davis (Raptors), Tayshaun Prince (Pistons...
Rudy Gay is the centerpiece of a three-team trade involving the Raptors, Grizzlies and Pistons.
The first domino before the February 21 trade deadline fell Wednesday when the Grizzlies traded Rudy Gay to the Raptors for Jose Calderon and Ed Davis and then sent Calderon to the Pistons for Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye.
It was not quite the deal everyone expected for Gay, but it was not totally unexpected that Gay would get moved. Memphis is desperate to get under the tax...
In our Week 13 NBA power rankings we stated that the Toronto Raptors are probably out of the hunt for Rudy Gay.
The reasoning for that revolved around a four player trade that Memphis put together with Cleveland.
Now it looks like all hope may not be lost.
