Calderon wasn't in the team's long-term plans.

Davis/Amir are both young PFs with very similar style games - they make each other redundant.

Gay is only 26, so he is now part of the team's young core, but at a position that was sorely lacking.

Financial impact aside, the Raps traded a backup PG on an expiring contract and a redundant backup PF for one of the top 10-15 SFs in the league.

Toronto now has good young core of players at more positions than they did before the trade
C: Valanciunas
PF: Johnson
SF: Gay
SG: Ross, Fields
PG: Lowry

Plus, it's almost guaranteed that the trading isn't done yet. I think Bargnani is 99% gone and I would hope that options to trade DeRozan would also be exhausted. I also hope that Anderson is cashed in while his value is peaked. Once all the moves are done, it will just make this Gay trade look even better.
Agrede with everything. We traded 2 players we didn't need for 1 we SORELY needed.
