I like this trade for Memphis. They get a defensive SF who won't command so many shots, freeing up their bigs to get more looks, you know, the more efficient players. They get added depth up front, and shed some long term salary, even if Prince's deal is also ridiculous, at least its not franchise handicapping, like Gay's would be to a lot of teams.
Toronto, meh. Took on a ton of salary for a solid starter, nothing more, just to get a name.
Pistons get a half season rental on a real PG, and shed that ridiculous deal Dumars gave Prince, and Daye just sucks, who cares.
I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.
Except for all of y'all.
Toronto dominated this trade. They got an All-Star caliber player for not much. Calderon/Lowry wasn't going to work long term.
What is Memphis doing? Gay, Speights, Selby and a 1st for virtually nothing. Small market owners can never fully sustain putting up the cash.
lot of overrated Rudy Gay here, damn.
I think Colangelo must have been offered a job in Memphis or someone else is pulling the strings. This doesn't make sense to me at all.
Rudy will be a big hit in Church and Wellesley, that's for sure.
id rather have faried than gay
Same goes for Pierce who the Celtics were rumored to be giving up for Gay himself. I mean you have your opinions and their condemnable doesn't mean everything your saying is based of actual scouting.
I can go explain more and break down why he's a top 5 SF but its pointless because it's no tlike it'll change your opinion.
I'll give you Gallo though, I think they are similar except Gay edges him defensively
Same thing goes on in the baseball forum, people just don't understand the context or nature of using adv stats.
Now I'm not saying Gay is some amazing top 15 player but to say he's not even top 50 and a top 5 SF is just being delusional and ignorant.

Rudy will be the go to guy in Toronto, don't see how this is a negative for the Raps at all...
