    Rudy Gay and Darrell Arthur for Calderon and Ed Davis rumor heating up

    Ed Davis has been great this year, risky trade
    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.

    The Grizzlies, though, maintain that last week's luxury-tax-slashing trade with Cleveland means they no longer feel the same pressure to move Gay or another high-priced player before the NBA's Feb. 21 trade deadline.

    New Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien told local reporters late last week that "we really like our team" and that it is "more likely than not that we do nothing" in terms of breaking up Memphis' marquee foursome of Gay, point guard Mike Conley, forward Zach Randolph and center Marc Gasol.

    But sources say that the Raptors, undaunted by that stance, continue to pursue Gay and also covet Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur. Toronto, sources said, has made veteran point guard Jose Calderon and blossoming young forward Ed Davis available as the two cornerstones of its offer.

    Other teams remain engaged with the Grizzlies as well, as Memphis officials continue to weigh whether it is best to trade Gay or keep together the core of a team that has ranked among the top four in the Western Conference.

    If talks with the Raptors do progress, according to sources, it's possible that a trade with Memphis could expand to include other teams and players. NBA front-office sources have maintained for weeks that Calderon (who has an expiring contract), fellow Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry (only $1 million in guaranteed salary next season) and former No. 1 overall pick Andrea Bargnani all are available.

    honestly, i'd rather keep davis.. he's a great young player and i've heard far too many issues with Gay being too much of an ISO player and is only effective with the ball. His defense is probably overrated due to the elite backcourt of Conley and Allen.

    On the other hand, maybe Rudy's production isn't as great because of the offensive firepower Memphis has in Gasol, Randolph, and conley..? I mean look at OJ mayo.. he's been beasting it ever since he left.

    completely wrong. Gay is overrated. Why do you think the Grizz want to dump him? He's overpaid for what he does. All he is , is an inefficient chucker.

    Davis is showing he can be a 20/10 guy. This is the first year he gets minutes, and he is averaging 15/8 for the month. Plus, he plays great defense and is efficient. He should be untouchable along with Ross and Valanciunas. Raptors need to build thru draft NOT crappy trades.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    Really don't understand why the Raptors do this, they're not close to being a playoff team and Gay is not the difference between playoffs or not.

    Raptors fans hated the Ross pick. They hated the Davis pick too.

    I don't know about that. At first maybe but within the hour we were fine with those picks.
