Why would Memphis do this isn't he one of their 1-2 3 punches aside Gasol and Conley or Z Bo??

I think there's a very interested option where Gay goes to PHX, Gortat goes to BOS, Jason Terry and Jared Dudley go to Memphis, and the Grizzlies get under the lux tax this year and beyond (a key part of their reasoning):

Deal solves major problems for all teams. Lee could be subbed in for Terry, though I'd prefer to keep him if one of the two is traded.

Not sure who says no...

It's a good idea, but I can 't imagine the Suns wanting to take on Rudy Gay's contract

Pierce for Gay wouldn't get them under the tax this year, but he's only $5 mil guaranteed for next year, helping them to get out of the repeater penalties. Throw in Wilcox and Joseph (to be waived) in return for Arthur and they shave off $2 mil off this years bill and free up $3 mil more from next year's cap.

Not a big fan of Gay, but Rondo/Bradley/Gay is a pretty electric perimeter trio in terms of speed, defense and athleticism

Correct me if I'm wrong, but PHX has been looking for a star scorer for a while now, both to build around and to attract fans. Gay could be that player.

I know they're cost sensitive, but he sure seems like a darn good fit there.

They did throw a lot of money at Eric Gordon, but I think Gay being that much older thurts.

Like the trade, I would figure Lee instead of Terry because his added size helps along with Dudly to fill gays role. I would also also offer wilcox and a 1st instead of melo.

He's 26, same age as Rondo. Gordon is 24.
I don't think age is an issue there.

What are your thoughts on this trade?
To Cleveland: Rudy Gay, Kris Joseph
To Boston: Anderson Varejao
To Memphis: Jason Terry, Alonzo Gee, Fab Melo, First from Boston

Getís Memphis under the tax, gives them an athletic 3 to replace Gay and the 3 point shooter that they sorely need.
DKC:  Rockets
CB Draft: Memphis Grizz
Players: Klay Thompson, Jabari Parker, Aaron Gordon
Next 3 picks: 4.14, 4.15, 4.19

Watching their last game against us, I'd say Conley is filling that role just fine :P

If there where willing to pay Gordon they would be willing to pay Gay. He is the closest thing to a star they are going to be able to get with what they have to offer

There next problem is getting rid of beasley...



one other side note what would keep Memphis from just doing Gay for Dudly and Gortat? Giving them the best big man rotation in basketball?

Why would Memphis do this isn't he one of their 1-2 3 punches aside Gasol and Conley or Z Bo??

Couple of reasons I would think:

Hollinger has some input in Memphis now and his beloved PER has Gay at only 15.4.

Gay is owed a lot of money going forward and the Grizz are a small market team.

They played well without Gay a couple of years ago. Without him, they defeated the Spurs in the 1st round and took the Thunder to 7 in the WCSF.
LarBrd33- If Brooklyn remains healthy, I think there's a chance they can make the playoffs next season.  Obviously that depends on how they fill out their roster. Here's hoping they are riddled with injuries again and we get another top 3 pick.
