The Memphis Grizzlies are surprisingly competitive this year.  Yet, they are still willing to trade away a big piece of their team it seems.  The Grizzlies may be willing to entertain trade offers on Rudy Gay.  With the trade deadline fast approaching, Memphis is considering putting Gay on the block. According to Zach Lowe of Grantland, the Grizzlies may trade Gay because of their payroll issues.  The team is still facing luxury tax penalties, and being from a small market makes it hard to continue down that path.  Memphis could get a solid return on Gay, so the trade route may be the best bet for this team if they want to continue to be contenders. Gay has remained healthy this season despite some serious injury concerns in the 2011-12 season.  Gay suffered a concussion but did not miss much time.  He averaged 19.0 points per game and 6.4 rebounds per game last season.  So far this year, Gay has averaged 18.0 points per game and 5.8 rebounds per game.Memphis has struggled offensively at times, so it would be difficult to watch Gay's offensive production walk via trade.  However, if they could get a healthy, young player or two and maybe some draft pick compensation, the Grizzlies could still be in good shape.
