Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan - teammates soon?

According to Doug Smith, Toronto is “close” to reaching an agreement in principle with a free agent for some, if not all, of the team’s mid-level salary cap exception. He doesn’t know who it is or who it could be, but does mention names like Matt Barnes, Ronnie Brewer, Shannon Brown and J.J Redick as being available. A full MLE for any of those players would be a big salary boost for them.
