Raptors Not Looking To Trade Rudy Gay

The Raptors are not looking to move Rudy Gay and the two years ($37.2MM) remaining on his contract, according to ESPN.com's Chris Broussard (via Twitter). When a report surfaced yesterday that the Pistons had offered up two expiring contracts for Gay, there was speculation that new GM Masai Ujiri could be looking to unload his small forward, but that's not the case, says Broussard.

Because Gay was acquired by the Raptors' old front-office regime, headed by Bryan Colangelo, it was unclear whether Ujiri valued the 26-year-old as strongly and considered him a part of Toronto's long-term plan. While that's still not entirely clear, it's at least obvious that Ujiri and the Raptors won't be inclined to move Gay for nothing, and likely don't plan to shop him either.
