A rumor surfaced that had the Memphis Grizzlies considering trading Rudy Gay for Monta Ellis.

GM Chris Wallace is not interested in that scenario.

"We're committed to this core,” Wallace said. “It's obvious. We've stepped up and extended three of them so far.

“What could we have done if Rudy was healthy (last season)? You're going to see Rudy Gay. We have no interest in trading Rudy Gay. We see Rudy as a cornerstone for this franchise."
