In return, the Pistons landed Jose Calderon (now with the Mavericks), while the Raptors landing Rudy Gay and Hamed Haddadi.

In 33 games with the Raptors, Rudy Gay averaged 19.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.7 steals per game. He shot 42.5% from the field, and 33.6% from the three-point line. During the 2014/15 NBA season, Rudy Gay will receive over $19 million, assuming he accepts the player option on the final year of his contract.

In early July, reports from ESPN claimed that the Pistons offered the expiring contracts of Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva in exchange for Rudy Gay. As expected, the Raptors turned down the offer.
