The Toronto Raptors have agreed to a trade that will send Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. The Raptors will get back John Salmons, Greivis Vasquez, Chuck Hayes and Patrick Patterson, per reports. The Kings will also get Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray in the deal.

Gay joined Toronto in the middle of last season after playing the first six seasons of his NBA career with the Memphis Grizzlies. This season, Gay is averaging 19.4 points and 7.4 rebounds per game, but shooting a career-low 39 percent from the field. Acquired by now-replaced general manager Bryan Colangelo, Gay's presence was viewed as a final swing by the old Toronto front office to make a playoff-capable basketball team.

That plan has been trashed soon enough under first-year general manager Masai Ujiri. The Raptors are off to a 6-12 start and just as the season began, reports surfaced that Toronto would give the current roster until December before looking into a rebuild.

Update: Gay will make sure Sacramento debut on Wednesday.
