Gets us into the top 6 in the East and could very well make it into the 2nd round...easily imo. Our current roster "growing together" will be lucky to crack 7th place and win one game in the 1st round of a playoff series. So if I pick my poison I take option A while posters like you delude yourselves into thinking our current roster has "potential" and that Colangelo won't blow all our cap on retaining them as he has proven over and over and over (ie/ Amir, Jose, DeMar, Bargnani...). No thanks

Top 6? Talk about speculating. I think there are a lot of Demar haters who share a trait in common. Anytime a player gets a big raise like Jose, Amir, Demar they move into a category of intense dislike by some posters. No question next year Demar will be overpaid but he is a decent player. The Raptors biggest problem is playing consistently as a unit and not have players taking free licence to jack up ridiculous ill advised perimeter shots. Both Lowry and Demar did that tonight with time running out and failing to execute whatever play Casey had them doing. The fact that we are in close games in an early rebuild phase should serve to temper the desire to see instant success by whatever flavour of the week star acquisition becomes popular. Gay would help the raps and so would a healthy Gordon. But not now when our line-up showcases twin point guards and twin power forwards? A trade for a player like Gay is a year or 2 away no matter who manages the team.

Yes, let's sign another Demar Derozan that will be making $20 million in 2014! That will definitely make us a contender.

Both Gay and DeMar are overpaid. Gay should be making what DeMar signed for his extension and DeMar should be making rotational player money at $4-5mil tops...............absolute tops! I'd give him less, but he loves Toronto right?

Rudy Gay isn't even that much of an upgrade in talent anyways...but again don't fall for the same trap when it comes to overpaying players. We've made that mistake so many times already and look where we at. I didn't agree at first but now I am thoroughly convinced tanking is the way to go (2014 that is).

Rudy gay would make this team marginally better, especially when you consider of what we will be trading out to get him (Ed, Ross, etc.)

Gay is severely lacking in that department.

I agree. Gay has no talent. Lebron James. Now that is a guy worth spending our cap space on.

I don't want him because he's way too expensive and because the very ppl who want him will be the first to complain about hos excessive contract with every shot he misses. I can just picture it now, "omg I can't believe we're paying 17 million for this." This place will be even more unbearable to visit.
