The Memphis Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors have reached an agreement in principle on a trade that would send forward Rudy Gay to the Raptors, ESPN.com reported Wednesday, based on sources.
The Gay trade appears to be part of a three-team deal.
In exchange for Gay, the Raptors will send forward/center Ed Davis and point guard Jose Calderon to the Grizzlies, who would then trade Calderon to a third team, which apparently will be the Detroit Pistons.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Pistons have agreed to send Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye to the Grizzlies to acquire Calderon.
Gay is averaging 17.2 points and 5.9 rebounds this season.
Calderon, who has started 30 of the 45 games he’s played, is averaging 11.1 points and 7.4 assists while hitting 42.6 percent of his three-point shots. Davis has started 24 of the 45 games he’s played this season and is averaging 9.7 points and 6.7 rebounds.
Prince, 32, is averaging 11.7 points and 4.6 rebounds this season while starting all 45 games, and Daye, who has not made any starts, is averaging 5.1 points and 2.6 rebounds.
Memphis is also expected to receive a second-round pick from Toronto, while the Raptors will also get reserve center Hamed Haddadi from Memphis.
According to the report, the Dallas Mavericks also had an interest in Calderon, but would have had to send Vince Carter to Memphis, and the Mavs were unwilling to do that.
