The rumored trade of Rudy Gay to the Toronto Raptors is not "imminent," according to Yahoo Sports' Adrain Wojnarowski. Toronto and the Memphis Grizzlies have been discussing a deal for a month, Woj wrote on the Twitter machine, but have yet to reach an agreement.
Woj's tweets follows yesterday's report by ESPN's Marc Stein that the Raptors' proposed package included Jose Calderon and Ed Davis (and the Raps wanted Darrell Arthur included in a deal with Gay).
Wojnarowski expanded on Stein's report, noting that Toronto is looking for a third team to take Calderon but has yet to find one willing to pitch in.
