The NBA is often a cold, heartless business. Rudy Gay and his shocked former teammates discovered this harsh reality when he was dealt to Toronto last night — Gay says that no one from the Memphis Grizzlies’ front-office contacted him regarding the trade. Per the Commercial Appeal’s Twitter feed: “Gay said Griz CEO Jason Levien nor anyone from team’s new management team called him to reveal trade … Gay: ‘I can’t even get a phone call?’ … Gay on Griz years: ‘It was good. I can’t really complain about what happened when I was here. I was happy to see the team progress.’ … Gay on Griz decision: ‘We shall see.’ … Gay didn’t sound angry. He actually seemed sad that his time in Memphis has come to an end after nearly 7 years.”
