Rudy Gay will be an RFA this upcoming offseason. Someone earlier claimed that Rudy and his camp are looking for max while the Grizzlies refuse to fork over that much. What do you think he deserves?

rudy gay would be a terrible max contract, don't get me wrong i think he is a great number two guy on a team, but he isn't worth a max at all.

SFs like Deng, Carter, A.I, RJ, etc all got over 12M and he's every bit as good as those guys or better. He will without a doubt be offered 12-13M a year next season and the Grizzles will no doubt match any offer on the table. 2010 has a lot of teams with cap room and we'll see many players being over payed like Arenas and Rashard Lewis have been payed. Joe Johnson will likely get the max as well as Amare

yeah they got those contracts in a different economy..

Arenes Brand and Lewis got those contracts the same way Gordon and Villinuava did.. a team had some money and noone else was a free agent so.. hey why not.. they were impatient.. if they waited until the end they could have gotten better deals for them.. what was Gordons and Villianuava options sign a 1 year mle.. come on

I would be fine with the Wolves throwing him a 5 year, $60 million deal.

good point on the economy. The deals that Deng, Lewis, Jefferson, etc got were with expectations of the salary cap going up, teams were doing better, etc. Last summer was the first indication that those deals are not available for 2nd tier players anymore. This summer will be the same. LeBron, Wade, will get max deals. Maybe even Amare (ugh), but nobody else will. Bosh may, but shouldn't. Everyone else, including Johnson, will need to settle in the $11-13 million range

If he stays in Memphis, I'm guessing 6 years 70 million

Elsewhere, somewhere around 5 years 60 million+

Memphis can match. So, if they would pay him that, why wouldn't they match a lower offer? This is Eisley. He will need to make a decision, cause in 3 years, Mayo is going to need a $11 million deal, and Gasol around $8-10. Cant keep all 3. Needs to figure it out

Like I said, if he stays in Memphis. I don't know that they will keep him. If they do that's the deal that seems likely. If Memphis decides they aren't will to pay Gay and would rather save the money for Mayo and Gasol, then it's up to other teams and I'm guessing somewhere around 5 years 60+ million

Being in Memphis i love Rudy but like i said before anybody who pays him 13 mil will be disappointed. Grizz included.

I think he deserves around 50-60 million seeing his upside and he's still young but I wouldnt be shocked if he ended up with 70-90 million for the simple fact I can see A few teams going into panic mode once LeBron,Wade, and Bosh make thier decisions. I can see A few guys getting overpaid this summer, Joe Johnson,Stat,Gay and Boozer will end up with max or near max deals cause teams will be scrambling to overpay for these guys once the top 3 guys are off the market.

I remember back when Duncan,T-Mac, and Hill were all free agents that one summer and the Bulls went into panic mode when they were unable to grab one of the big free agents and we ended up giving Ron Mercer A ridiculous contract.

11-12 Million. Rudy is an amazing slasher, and the guy can score, I like him a lot.

I would not be surprised if he got 12 mill. So many teams with spending cash and they will definitely sign a borderline allstar for a lot of money if they don't get the tier 1 guys. Thats why No D Amare will get a max. Just because GMs wanna give their fans false hope.

I would pay him more then I would pay Amare Stoudemire thats for sure. He defends, plays with intensity, he can shoot it and score from ANYWHERE on the floor. Hoping the Suns make a deal for him.. He'd be perfect for them!

He'll get around 12 mil a year.. teams with $$ will outbid each other and end up over paying. Rudy is a GREAT.. number 2 player on a team.

Someone is going to over-pay gay by a lot. I think a lot of players will not get the contracts they want or possibly deserve compared to other players at their position. But I think some GM is going to fall for Gay and pay big.

If i had a choice, I'd pay all these ball players 75k per year.....they make too much damn money.

I say 5yr 50mill for Gay; similar to a Corey Magette-type deal.

I hope Memphis resigns him. I like the core they have right now.
