Source: Raptors Likely To Offer Extension To Rudy Gay

Rudy Gay disagrees with the Memphis Grizzlies' new ownership's decision to trade him.

"You have to give me a chance to see if I'm worth that," Gay told Yahoo! Sports.

Gay anticipated a possible trade when Robert Pera assumed ownership of the Grizzlies.

"With [new management], I don't think anybody's comfortable," Gay said. "They're rookie owners. They come in there and they want it their own way, and you can't blame them for that. But it's a player's league."

A source says the Raptors will likely offer a contract extension to Gay in the offseason.

"I needed a change," Gay said of the trade. "I needed a new situation. A new task. I needed a new task with something I could grasp, something I could take over. I need to be challenged. I was challenged in Memphis, but it was tug of war at times. Here I'm being challenged and they're seeing what I'm made of."

The Raptors are 7-8 since Gay was acquired.

"Last time I left it up to my agent and it worked for me," Gay said about a possible extension with the Raptors. "I love the city. I think the team has a lot of potential. The organization is great. [Bryan Colangelo] is here and he is watching every step trying to make this team better."
