The Memphis Grizzlies have held preliminary trade talks over the past few weeks centered on Rudy Gay, according to sources.

John Hollinger and Jason Levien have recently joined the Grizzlies' front office, while Chris Wallace's level of influence on personnel decisions is unclear.

Gay signed an $84 million contract in 2010 and is making $16.4 million this season.

Gay's name also surfaced in trade rumors before the 2012 NBA Draft.

theres no reason to trade him. He fits into their offense very well, it's just about efficiency for him. What they need is a 20 ppg scorer and a go to guy down the stretch, and that's what he gives.

Buzz around Memphis is they are testing the waters, but not actively pursuing a deal.

The two deals I've heard of around the league are Milsap for Gay base, or a Monta Ellis for Gay base. Neither of which I like much for Memphis.

I doubt Randolph, Gay, Gasol or Conley get traded any time soon they are probably gonna keep the core together.

Why would they trade him? He's holds this team together pretty much if you ask me

Who would they get that's better at the SF position than Gay?

I don't think it's about getting better at SF because Gay is one of the best at his position today. but since the Grizzlies are a small-market team taking on 3 max contracts, it's about adding depth and financial flexibility.
