The recent Cavs-Grizzlies deal lessens the urgency for Memphis to move Rudy Gay but doesn't eliminate its desire to
do so, a team executive interested in acquiring Gay said. Dealing Mo Speights, Josh Selby and Wayne Ellington for Jon Leuer clears $6 million off their payroll and puts them on the cusp, according to one GM, of not paying the $1 for $1 luxury tax. The Grizzlies are still interested in moving Gay, the first executive insisted, they simply can be more judicious about what they want in return and how long they'll wait -- possibly until this summer -- to strike a deal.
