UPDATE: Done Deal...

Grizzlies trade Rudy Gay to Raptors in three-team deal with Pistons

The Memphis Grizzlies have reached an agreement in principle to trade forward Rudy Gay to the Toronto Raptors, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

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.

Quote:
The Memphis Grizzlies continue to field calls from teams interested in Rudy Gay and are engaged in active trade discussions with the Toronto Raptors, sources with knowledge of the talks told ESPN.com.

Although the framework of a workable trade has not yet been established, sources told ESPN.com that Toronto -- known to be perhaps Gay's most determined suitor -- has continued to make a hard push for the swingman.

The Grizzlies, though, maintain that last week's luxury-tax-slashing trade with Cleveland means they no longer feel the same pressure to move Gay or another high-priced player before the NBA's Feb. 21 trade deadline.

New Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien told local reporters late last week that "we really like our team" and that it is "more likely than not that we do nothing" in terms of breaking up Memphis' marquee foursome of Gay, point guard Mike Conley, forward Zach Randolph and center Marc Gasol.

But sources say that the Raptors, undaunted by that stance, continue to pursue Gay and also covet Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur. Toronto, sources said, has made veteran point guard Jose Calderon and blossoming young forward Ed Davis available as the two cornerstones of its offer.

Other teams remain engaged with the Grizzlies as well, as Memphis officials continue to weigh whether it is best to trade Gay or keep together the core of a team that has ranked among the top four in the Western Conference.

If talks with the Raptors do progress, according to sources, it's possible that a trade with Memphis could expand to include other teams and players. NBA front-office sources have maintained for weeks that Calderon (who has an expiring contract), fellow Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry (only $1 million in guaranteed salary next season) and former No. 1 overall pick Andrea Bargnani all are available.

The Boston Celtics, sources say, are another team that has registered exploratory interest in Gay. But making a trade for Gay would require Boston to part with Paul Pierce -- a step that Celtics management may not be ready to take, especially since Gay has two years left on his contract valued at more $35 million.

Sources say that the Grizzlies, meanwhile, know Pierce would likely have strong reservations about leaving Boston for Memphis and aren't sure he could address the various priorities they've identified as musts in a Gay trade, such as adding depth and youth to the roster as well as balancing out a top-heavy payroll.

Sources told ESPN.com on Sunday night, in the wake of Rajon Rondo's season-ending knee injury, that Boston was more likely to pursue Lowry and his cap-friendly contract.

ESPN.com reported Friday that there is no shortage of teams convinced that the Grizzlies might still opt to move Gay before the trade deadline, especially in the wake of their recent trade with Cleveland that shed more than $6 million in salary and took the Grizzlies under the luxury-tax threshold.

But Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins and various players have publicly lobbied for the right to play out this season with no dramatic changes to the roster, now that Memphis will not have a luxury-tax bill at season's end.

Taking the long-term view, however, Memphis' management team under new owner Robert Pera is said to be concerned about its limited ability to keep improving the roster and address obvious concerns regarding the Grizzlies' depth and perimeter shooting. The bulk of Memphis' payroll is tied up in four players: Gay, Conley, Randolph and Gasol.

To convince Cleveland to take back reserves Marreese Speights, Wayne Ellington and Josh Selby in Tuesday's trade, Memphis was forced to surrender a protected future first-round pick.

The Grizzlies, sources said, were concerned about their lack of future first-round picks before that trade and are thus believed to be pursuing picks as part of any in-season deal involving Gay.

The Grizzlies could also elect to resist in-season trades and then try to move Gay or Randolph in connection with the draft in June or during free agency in July.

I can't believe Raps giving up Ed Davis. I wish Morey snags him somehow, he is the power forward that we need cheap, young and talented.

It makes perfect sense for the Raptors. You can't have Davis getting in the way of their awesome future superstar Andrea Bargnani.

I keep hearing about trades for Gay, Z-bo, and even Gasol. What is the interest of the Grizzlies in trading Gay and Z-Bo again? They may not be a championship team, but they can go deep with their current roster and are currently a 600 team. It's not like a trade is gonna help them win a championship.

i don't understand how you can say Rudy gay sucks or is terrible. He is a good player, overpriced, but a good player.

I seriously don't believe that Grizzlies management is in a rush to move Rudy Gay BEFORE the season ends.

Doing so would garner such ill-will among the grizzlies fanbase that it wouldn't be logical. I also think Pera and company KNOW that they owe the fans THIS last season before they decide to make a major move. In addition to the fact that allowing the grizzlies to go into the playoffs with this team, they would be in a better position to know what they have and what they need to do in the off-season.

Of course, that isn't to say that Rudy absolutely won't get traded before the deadline. But it does mean that any deal the grizzlies make for Rudy would have to be a no-brainer deal that they COULDN'T pass up. With high picks and/or substantial players that management covets.

I wouldn't be so quick to bash Toronto. I will forever be grateful that they gave us a lottery pick for Lowry to make the Harden trade possible. Thank you, Brian Colangelo, for your big heart.

The Grizzlies are beasting with Rudy Gay shooting Jeremy Lin-esque 40% from the field, 47TS%. Put random decent SF, like Parsons in his place, and they're not going to win any less. I agree there were seasons in the past when Gay was quite important to the team. This year? Not so much
