Moderators: Yuri Vaultin, tsherkin, Alfred, FluLikeSymptoms, Rhettmatic, itbobby007, Undefeated, DG88, Morris_Shatford

How do you feel about the Raptors pursuing Rudy Gay?

Yes! Do it. He'd be our best wing by a mile.

No way! He's overpaid, overrated.

Meh. Only if he comes very cheap.

I often hear that only thing that counts is the W but I disagree. I think the only thing that counts is the performance during the 200 or so possessions. The result is not as meaningful to me as the play that lead to the result.

I want to see proper execution for 200 plays.

Win or lose I don't care for me it's all about the content that lead to the result.



Why watch the NBA? You sound like a natural NCAA fan.


I like both :)

Don't think the Raps can compete with that offer even if they put Ross in the trade, because MEM is still trying to win a title the next 2 years and nothing we can offer helps that as much as PHX giving them that Dudley glue guy piece on the wings


This is basically spot on to what is going on. People downplaying Dudley haven't analyzed much of what the guy does. With Conley, Randolph and Gasol, they don't need much playmaking ability - especially at the behest of 19 million a season. Dudley will do the job well, and for a fifth of the cost. We can't compete with the offer, and I haven't seen Hollinger talk well about one of our players for YEARS. Dudley is a Hollinger star - cheap and efficient.

Didn't MEM have similar player in Shane Battier 2 years ago? How did that work for them in their championship quest? TOR can offer a much better package for Gay than PHX.

Hope he ends up on the Suns. Once Gay is traded, there won't be any knee-jerk BC treadmill moves left, right?

We'll not get a player anywhere near that talented anytime soon. Fans of this team being this absurdly picky is ridicuous considering our history.

That's true, but unless we're contender's , i don't care because our roster isn't talented enough with gay and that's not a knock on him! we're just not in a position to be adding high priced players to a mediocre roster at this point.

Yeah if we get Rudy we have to add more

If the goal is "be a decent playoff team":

Lowry
Demar
Gay
Milsap
Val

Thats a decent team, I don't like the idea though

The chance to draft a perfect prospect for this city like Wiggins may not reappear anytime soon either.

Fapworthy.

It's more or less not happening if we are to keep Lowry, DD, and Val.
Here's taking a shot at it though:

TO RAPTORS:
Paul Millsap
Raja Bell

TO JAZZ:
Andrea Bargnani
Terrence Ross

TO RAPTORS:
Rudy Gay
Jared Bayless
Hamid Haddadi
Josh Selby

TO GRIZZLIES:
Jose Calderon
Linas Kleiza
Alan Anderson
Quincy Acy
2nd Rd Pick 2014 (SAC) via Toronto

LOWRY / Lucas / Selby
DEROZAN / Bayless / Bell
GAY / Fields / Pietrus
MILLSAP / Davis / Johnson
VALANCIUNAS / Gray / Haddadi
