TORONTO - Rudy Gay and the Toronto Raptors just didn't work out, according to team general manager Masai Ujiri.
Ujiri said he didn't have a problem with Gay's talent level or attitude. But he said that the Raptors were lacking in chemistry, and changes had to come.
So Ujiri pulled off his second major trade since joining the Raptors in the off-season, sending Gay and his sizable contract to the Sacramento Kings.
"Phenomenal talented player, it just wasn't working," Ujiri said at a press conference Monday.
