    That's true, they turned a 3 year contract into an expiring.. and I'm sure Austin Daye was out of their at this point anyways.. from a salary perspective it makes sense.. it's not like it's a big win, unless they reach a deal with Jose, but it seems they'd be pretty stuffed in the back court..
    They should flip the expiring into something more useful.

    Yeah, you guys got a player who likely won't re sign with you and Toronto got a potential All-Star for an expiring and a fringe starting PF, but Detroit won the deal.

    GTFO

    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.

    Each team got what they wanted.

    Detroit got rid of Prince while getting a temporary PG.

    Grizzlies got a salary dump while adding depth.

    Toronto got a legit SF in his prime who just so happens to be Lowry's best friend.

    Memphis and Detroit are winners, I'm not buying it for the Raptors. They're basically capping themselves out for what looks to be a 7-8 seed.

    I just never liked this for Toronto. Let the young guys play. Jonas's development might suffer here too. Derozan, Gay, Bargs and even Lowry some nights like to shoot quite a bit.

    I dunno, never a fan of it, and to me there was a reason why nobody else bit on a Rudy Gay deal.

    Wow.......this thread has officially gone to the crapper.

    LOL at everyone who insists that only 1 team can win a trade and someone has to lose.

    Every team can't be rebuilding. The purpose of the new CBA is to add balance to the league. While I'm not sure that's what was accomplished, at some point you have to take risk.

    Toronto from my understanding while a non-glamour team isn't a small market team so money isn't as big of an issue as getting players there. As I said in another thread I could see them shipping Derozan and Bargnani for a guy like Pau Gasol.

    The league is top heavy. Only 4 or 5 team in the entire league at a time are really title contenders the way things are step up now. I think a roster with Lowry/Gay/and a Gasol type player can be as good as Memphis is now. Which is better than rebuilding every 3-5 years.

    Everyone talking about money like it's coming out of their pocket. Ownership should have no problems paying the luxury tax.

    Gay's role will change in Toronto. He'll be a true #1 option playing alongside a PG in Lowry he already has chemistry with. Toronto won this trade if you look past the money YOU don't have to pay him. Gay will effectively guard the other team's best wing player and provide Toronto with some consistent offense. People forget how good he is because he put up weak numbers this year on a Memphis team that made it clear they wanted to get rid of him.

    People are forgetting about the most important piece of this trade. The Raptors also got HAMED HADDADDI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    there was a Lowry, Gay, Gasol roster some years ago.

    guess what, they went into the lottery.
    gasol is older now.

    Make your math.

    You've got a true pg for the next 36 games, lol. You traded for cap space. You traded for potentialities, nothing concrete. Potentiality is not greater than a tangible asset. You don't believe that your GM can drop the ball again and sign terrible contracts? Your ownerships unwillingness to spend is what is holding you back. Not Prince...

    You're arguing that freeing up playing time for young guys that I'd bet won't even come close to being as good as Rudy Gay means you won the trade? lol Come on man. It was a good trade for Det but they did not benefit the most from it directly. You got the smallest slice of the pie and yet you're here telling me you walked away with the biggest. Wrong.

    Since when is cap space better than a fringe All-Star?
