According to Marc Stein on ESPN, the Memphis Grizzlies have agreed to trade Rudy Gay to the Toronto Raptors in a trade that also involves the Detroit Pistons.
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 ESPN.com the Grizzlies will acquire forward Ed Davis and veteran guard Jose Calderon from the Raptors and then move Calderon 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.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Pistons have agreed to send Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye to the Grizzlies to acquire Calderon as part of the trade.
Memphis, sources said, is also 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.
This will be an emotional trade as players like Rudy Gay, Jose Calderon, and Tayshaun Prince have played for the same team their entire careers with the same team and it will be hard for them leaving. This is of particular interest to Celtics fans as it now puts to rest all the rumors of trading Paul Pierce for Rudy Gay. At the end of the day, I'm happy the Captain is still a Celtic. He has earned the right to finish his career in Boston.
