I’m not sure what the Memphis Grizzlies true goals are as a franchise. The Griz have finally made good on the rumors to trade Rudy Gay. Check out the details of the trade, which seems more of a salary dump than a move to get better.
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.
This comes on the heels of a trade the Grizzlies made recently that sent Marresse Speights and Wayne Ellington to the Cavaliers. So do the Grizzlies seriously want to compete for a title? None of the moves look as if it’s about this season or getting better.
