Kentucky Basketball: Tayshaun Prince reportedly headed to the Memphis Grizzlies

Elsa

Former Kentucky Wildcat standout Tayshaun Prince will be heading to the Grizzlies to replace Rudy Gay, according to multiple sources.

Tayshaun Prince appears to be the key piece in the latest NBA trade. According to ESPN's Marc Stein and other reporters, Prince will be part of a three-team trade that will send Rudy Gay to the Toronto Raptors.

The Detroit Pistons will send small forward Tayshaun Prince and forward Austin Daye to the Memphis Grizzlies. In return, the Pistons will receive Spanish point guard Jose Calderon from the Raptors. The Raptors will receive Rudy Gay and Hamed Haddadi from the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies were reportedly looking for a small forward to fill in for Gay before trading him and Prince seems to be that guy. Prince is averaging 11.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game this season. He's shooting 44.4 percent from the field and a career best 43.4 percent from the 3-point line.

CBSSports reporter Ken Berger reports that the trade will save the Grizzlies $5.8 million this year and $26.4 million over the next three years.
