Rudy Gay traded to the Toronto Raptors


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 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. 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.
