ATLANTA - In desperate need of both a massive shakeup and star talent, Bryan Colangelo got busy on Wednesday.

In a deal that will have consequences that will reverberate across all facets of the organization, the Raptors acquired small forward Rudy Gay from the Memphis Grizzlies, in exchange for promising young forward Ed Davis, longest-serving Raptor Jose Calderon and the teamís second round pick this summer.

Colangelo had long been in pursuit of the silky smooth, 6-foot-9 Gay.
