Wiretap Speculation:3 way:PP to Grizz,Pau to Cs, Gay to Fakers

"The Boston Celtics have held exploratory trade talks with the Memphis Grizzlies on Rudy Gay.

More than one team has speculated that a three-way trade that would send Pau Gasol to the Celtics, Paul Pierce to the Grizzlies and Rudy Gay to the Lakers makes "some sense".

Pierce's $15.3 million salary for next season is guaranteed for only $5 million, which would make his contract tradable."

Via Marc Stein/ESPN

Some of us have advocated for a Paul for Pau trade. This is even better if it becomes a reality.

1. Fakers don't get Pierce.

2. We get the multi-talented big we need with assets to make another trade for a shooter, if need be.

3.Grizz get $$$ relief for next year and a champion for their quest in the West.

Anybody in?

We're not trading Pierce so that Ainge can help the Lakers land Gay.

Nope.

Adding Pau but subtracting Pierce doesn't make us a contender.

Good trade for Boston. Gasol would be our number 1 option, running the entire offense through him (he is a great passer). He's still got it, he is just stuck in a system that doesn't fit, in LA. I would then flip Rondo and Terry for Lowry, Pietrus, Davis and a pick.

we would be a worse team overall. Pau is very slow. its not all about height, those obsessed with height will like that trade, but pierce is 10 times more talented than pau. how many times has pau dropped 40 pts on a team recently?

TOTALLY disagree. Pierce looks awful. Gasol and KG down low would be deadly together. I would've made this trade yesterday and twice the day before.

I think a Gay for Pierce trade is becoming more real every day. Just a feeling I have.

Terrific deal for LA. Whoever gets Gay wins the deal.

Pau and Pierce are old guys. Gay is a long term building block.

"So it's premature, to me, to throw Pierce's name up there with Rudy Gay and Pau Gasol on the list of high-profile names available this trade season, even though we've heard more than one rival team speculate -- given that the Celtics and Grizzlies, sources say, have indeed held some exploratory trade talks since Gay hit the market -- that a three-way deal where Pierce lands in Memphis, Gasol goes to Boston and Gay joins the Lakers makes "some sense.""

Apart from the fact that Gay ain't no star.

I think this improves our chances this year and extends our window a bit. We just can't get into the paint anymore.  This would help.

I'd trade PP straight up for Gay. Gay and Green on the wings Rondo Bradley at PG. A man can dream right? Plus a future FC of Sully, Melo, and Oden? Well while we're dreaming.  :D
