Since their season ended at the hands of the Clippers in the first round of the playoffs, rumors have circulated that the Grizzlies would trade Rudy Gay to help bolster their roster.  Tired of hearing the rumors, Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley addressed those rumors.

"We're not looking to trade Rudy Gay," Heisley said. "We're not shopping him around. Period. Do we sit around and say, 'What if we traded Rudy, who could we get?' No. Right now, Rudy is part of the future of this team.....Our plan was always to protect the core. I've got the core for four years," Heisley said. "If we ever decide to do something, it won't be because of salary. We're going to build a team around this core group. We understand Rudy's salary. We understood it when we gave it to him. We're not looking to cut salary. We're looking to try and win a championship."
