Rudy Gay’s name has popped up in recent trade chatter, and according to Yahoo! Sports, the Phoenix Suns are interested in acquiring the star forward from Memphis: “The Grizzlies have been shopping Gay to multiple teams, and found an interested trade partner with the Suns, sources said. There’s no framework of a possible deal in place, but the Grizzlies have expressed a strong desire that any package involving Gay include Suns forward Jared Dudley and future first-round draft picks, sources said. In an effort to avoid paying luxury tax in the short term, as well as get off the $17.8 million and $19.3 million owed Gay in the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons, new Memphis management has aggressively shopped Gay. [...] The Suns have been mindful of their financial state under Phoenix owner Robert Sarver, and there are still doubts within the organization they will ultimately be able to absorb the remainder of Gay’s contract.”
