    Only for this year. Not for the entire length of Randolph, Gay and Gasols contracts, which would have put them over luxury tax next year.

    A WAY better player than Rudy Gay.

    No.

    Pierce
    Faried
    George
    Batum
    Deng
    Josh Smith
    Danilo Gallinari
    Thad Young (iffy, if not here, then in the next category for sure...also, he's probably more of a PF)

    Guys who I'd rather have on my team because of salary reasons:

    Ersan Ilyasova
    MKG
    Evan Turner (maybe)
    If Faried is a SF, then what is Gallo?

    This man just said Kenneth Faried is better than Rudy Gay
    Except Faried IS better than Rudy Gay.

    If thats the case then I don't know as well.

    Its a trade that Colangelo had to make to save his job for the season. He does not give a **** about the future of the Raptors, he just needs to keep his job. With Rudy Gay I'm still not confident that this team will make the playoffs. Whats the point of Getting Rudy Gay that will avg. 16 points when you got Barganani starting giving away 20 points.

    Memphis got better with Ed Davis who is solid young player and Prince Solid D and can score consistently.

    Not sure how the backcourt defense is going to work out though.

    Calderon, Knight & Singler doesn't seem like a good combination in that regard.


    SWAGUEZ!!!

    Some players just need a change of scenery in order to flourish their careers. For example Zach randolph going to memphis did wonders for him. I think rudy gay will thrive in toronto with lowry, derozen and ross. I like this trade for the raps!

    This is actually a good trade for all three teams.

    Rudy Gay's contract is terrible, but the Raptors did get better..

    its a good trade for everyone..the raptors never had a sf who can provide what rudy gay will provide...its tough losing ed davis but when you look at the frontcourt of bargnani, j val, johnson and gray getting minutes..someone had to be moved and amir johnson/ gray aren't gonna land you rudy gay..raptors sold high on ed davis...as the the grizz makes sense they unlad salary...add an underrated player in prince who can knock down shots and can hold his own at the 3 spot while you have guys like conley, z bo and gasol providing the scoring load...as for the pistons it make sense if they are going after the expiring but with stuckey, knight, will bynum, singler, and calderon its just to many players in the backcourt when they are trying to develop knight

    I am not sure I buy the system argument, but we shall see. He will be the feature player in Toronto, which will hike up his usage, and I am not sure thats a good thing.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Gay will thrive in a fast paced offense. He can put his athletic abilities to use now in an up-tempo offense. Nice deal for the Grizz.

    I have a feeling Stuckey will be departing soon.

    It was time for Prince to go. His contract on a building team was a waste and Daye needs a new place. Calderon gives them a solid PG for now and an expiring.

    Love this for Grizz and Pistons. Not horrible for Raps.
