Grizzlies are trading Rudy Gay to Raptors in 3-team deal
 
http://www.insidehoops.com/nba_rumors.shtml

The Grizzlies receive point guard Jose Calderon as part of the deal, and will route Calderon's $10.5 million expiring contract to the Detroit Pistons for a package that includes forwards Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye, league sources told Y! Sports. The Raptors also sent forward Ed Davis and a second-round pick to the Grizzlies. Memphis sent center Hamed Haddadi to the Raptors. Gay, 26, is averaging 17.2 points and 5.9 rebounds. Yahoo

Under new owner Robert Para, Memphis has been desperate to unload contracts for the short- and long-term. In Prince, the Grizzlies get a respected, if not aging, small forward who'll give them considerable savings over the $37 million owed Gay the next two seasons. Yahoo

Detroit clears the final two years, $15 million left on Prince's deal, and moves nearly $25 million under the salary cap beginning with free agency in July. The Pistons will then be in the market for two young perimeter players to build around their promising young core of Greg Monroe, center Andre Drummond and guard Brandon Knight. Yahoo

The Grizzlies are losing a great player if this happens. I can't condone this. So idiotic.

This is idiotic. If people think Rudy is was a terrible iso player, wait till they see ZBO trying to post up every play. ZBO oftens try to do too much when he is called upon to be the primary offensive player.

Seems like a cheap price to pay for a good scorer and athlete.

Memphis gave up when they got rid of their entire bench.
Might as well go all out.

So is this deal a vote of no confidence for DeRozan?

It sucks to see a player that can contribute like Gay being traded to a team that isnt going to contend.

Possibly the worst place for Gay to be traded at the moment considering hes on a contending Grizz.

Clips need to jump in.

Butler to Memphis, Bledsoe to Toronto.

Ross and Calderon to the Clips.

:bowdown: :D
