The Memphis Grizzlies are likely to hang onto Rudy Gay for the remainder of this season.
The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports that Gay has been told that he likely won't be dealt -- unless the franchise receives an offer that it can't refuse.
From the Commercial Appeal:
According to a person with knowledge of those conversations, Gay is
likely to remain a Grizzly through the end of this season. The message
to Gay at the moment is that if he is dealt by the league's Feb. 21
trade deadline, then the Griz will have been offered a no-brainer
For example, the Griz have entertained the Washington Wizards' offer
for Gay. The crux of that exchange would have the Griz receiving rookie
shooting guard Bradley Beal in a larger package.
Gay's name has also been linked to the Phoenix Suns, Toronto Raptors, Minnesota Timberwolves, Sacramento Kings, and Golden State Warriors.
