Default Memphis agrees to trade Rudy Gay to the Raptors

MEMPHIS gets: Ed Davis, Tayshaun Prince, Austin Daye, 2nd rounder (from Toronto)

TORONTO gets: Rudy Gay, Hamed Haddadi

DETROIT gets: Jose Calderon

The Memphis Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors have agreed in principle on a trade that will send leading scorer Rudy Gay to the Raptors, according to sources with knowledge of the deal.

Sources told that the Grizzlies will acquire forward Ed Davis and veteran guard Jose Calderon from the Raptors and then move Calderon on to a third team to ultimately make this a three-team deal.

The Detroit Pistons, sources said, are one of the prime options to take on Calderon, having pursued the Spanish floor leader all season.

The Grizzlies want a small forward out of the trade and Detroit has two believed to be available: Tayshaun Prince and Corey Maggette. But Memphis, sources said, is talking to at least one other team about taking on Calderon and is expected to receive a second-round pick from Toronto as part of the deal.

The Raptors, sources said, are expected to take on Grizzlies reserve center Hamed Haddadi in addition to Gay.

The Dallas Mavericks are the other most likely landing spot for Calderon, but sources said Dallas is resistant to parting with Vince Carter, Memphis' prime target on the Mavs' roster.

Going online now: ESPN sources say Grizzlies and Raps have deal in place to swap Rudy Gay and Hamed Haddadi for Ed Davis and Jose Calderon

Goes on to say that Jose Calderon will go to a third team. Detroit is the most likely team with Tayshaun Prince or Corey Maggette coming back to Memphis.

Also says that another prime landing spot for Calderon could be Dallas, but Memphis wants Vince Carter while Dallas doesn't want to part with him.
