Picture this. It will soon be reality.

The Memphis Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors have come to an agreement to send star swingman Rudy Gay to Canada, according to’s Marc Stein. Toronto’s Ed Davis will be shipped to Memphis and Jose Calderon will move to an undetermined third team.

As of now, the Detroit Pistons look to be the most likely candidate, a team that has been interested in the Spanish point guard since the beginning of the season. The Pistons have two small forwards – Tayshaun Prince and Corey Maggette – that could entice the Grizzlies since they need a cheaper option to replace Gay in the rotation.

Sitting at 16-29 and 5 1/2 games out of the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference, this deal could give the Raptors a fighting chance to squeeze into the playoffs – if Kyle Lowry can get back to one hundred percent.

As for the Grizzlies, they might be less potent offensively, but they certainly look to be in a better economic position moving forward while still having their core consisting of Mike Conley Jr., Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol.
