The Grizzlies have been trying to trade Rudy Gay for awhile now like he slapped the owner in the face or something. Even though they made a deal to get under the luxury tax a couple of weeks ago, they are still pushing to get Gay out of Memphis.
According ESPN.com the Raptors are the frontrunners.
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.
