In a deal that I honestly thought would never happen after the Grizzlies front office managed to get under the luxury tax threshold by dealing Marreese Speights, Rudy Gay has been traded.The Raptors will send out Jose Calderon and Ed Davis for Gay and Hamed Haddadi.The Pistons will acquire Calderon, with the Grizzlies receiving Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye.The Grizzlies will also receive a second round pick from the Raptors. - RealGMToronto now boosts a starting lineup of Kyle Lowry, DeMar Derozan, Rudy Gay, and for now Amir Johnson and Aaron Gray? until Andre Bargnani and Jonas Valanciunas return.  I am not sure how the ball will be spread in Toronto but clearly all 3 guys have seen a decrease in fantasy value for the moment, but Rudy Gay should take the smallest hit followed by Lowry, with Derozan seeing the largest decline, in my opinionRaptors Fans ReactionsMemphis, when healthy, will run Mike Conley, Tony Allen, Tayshaun Prince, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol.  With Gay gone, Randolph and Gasol see HUGE boosts as the Grizzlies are clearly a low post team now.  Tayshaun Prince should see slight increase in fantasy value while Conley and Allen's games shouldn't change all that much.  Ed Davis and Darrell Arthur lose big time value in this trade.Grizzlies Fans ReactionsDetroit's starting five looks like Brandon Knight, Rodney Stuckey, Kyle Singler, Jason Maxiell and Greg Monroe.  Clearly Kyle Singler is a must own now as he will see a huge boost in minutes while Monroe, Knight and Stuckey should all see a slight boost as they will attempt to take over as the leader of the team.  Jose Calderon will most likely be the 6th man with PLENTY of playing time so his value should stay the same.Pistons Fans Reactions
