Rudy Gay back on Raptors' radar
By RYAN WOLSTAT, QMI Agency
Rudy Gay seemed safe in Memphis after the team dumped salary to get under the luxury tax.
But the team only gave Gay a lukewarm endorsement following the move, which seemed a bit odd, and lo and behold, he remained on the trade block.
Now, Toronto has returned to the fore, continuing a long pursuit of Gay that dates back to the 2006 draft, when he was among the final options to go No. 1 overall.
The teams continue to discuss a deal involving Ed Davis and Jose Calderon heading to Memphis for Gay, who would provide a considerable upgrade at small forward.
Gay is a close friend of Kyle Lowry, who would return to the starting point guard role.
