Tayshaun Prince reportedly traded to Grizzlies as part of Rudy Gay deal

USA TODAY Sports

Tayshaun Prince appears headed to Memphis from the Detroit Pistons as Rudy Gay's replacement.

The Detroit Pistons appear to be the third team involved with the Rudy Gay trade, and ESPN's Marc Stein is one of multiple reporters citing sources that say they will send small forward Tayshaun Prince and former first-round pick Austin Daye to the Memphis Grizzlies.

Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News reports that Prince and Daye were called into head coach Lawrence Frank's office, meaning the deal could become official soon. Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski also confirmed Daye was part of the deal, though there are differing reports about whether Detroit will also give up a second-round draft pick.

David Aldridge and Sam Amick of USA Today report the Pistons will give up a pick in addition to shipping off Prince and Daye.

In return, Detroit will take on Toronto Raptors point guard Jose Calderon and his contract that is worth $10.5 million in its final year. Gay will head to the Raptors with big man Hamed Haddadi, and Memphis will also receive second-year forward Ed Davis from Toronto.

Toronto and Memphis had recently been gaining more momentum on a deal involving Gay and presumably needed a third team to take on Calderon's contract. The Grizzlies also were seeking out a third team willing to give up a small forward capable of replacing Gay on the roster.
