A person familiar with the deal said the Toronto Raptors reached an agreement to send Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings in a multiplayer trade.

The Raptors will receive Greivis Vasquez, Patrick Patterson, John Salmons and Chuck Hayes. The Kings also will acquire Aaron Gray and Quincy Acy.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday night because the trade was still pending NBA approval, said the deal is expected to become official Monday.

The move is the second major one for the Kings already this season as they begin rebuilding under new owner Vivek Ranadive. Sacramento sent Luc Mbah a Moute to Minnesota for Derrick Williams on Nov. 26.

Sacramento (5-13) had lost six straight games until beating the NBA-worst Utah Jazz on Saturday night. The Kings are hoping Gay can provide immediate help while convincing him to stay long-term.

Gay is making $17.8 million this season. He holds a $19.3-million player option for the 2014-15 season but is widely expected to opt out of his contract and test free agency.
