Anything that makes it more difficult for us to re-sign Pekovic does not make sense to me.
Plus, like others have said, AK's defense/intangibles are more important than what Gay could bring us.
Yeah to me the math is off if you say: MN + Gay = MN - AK and Pek (next season)
I would be WAY more interested in signing Tony Allen away from them in the offseason. Glen says he will go into the luxury tax.
Ricky/JJ (or Luke)
AK/draft pick/Nemanja (or preferably Bud if we can re-sign him for cheap enough)
To me that is a team we could actually afford and that and wouldn't require us to break up our core. We would probably have to go right up to the luxury threshold to sign that team depending on who we keep and who gets jettisoned.
Also why would we want to help Memphis get under the tax anyways? I'd rather see that team have to break it up and hurt what a nice thing they have going.
