I think Denver still owns a huge trade exemption from the Nene trade.

I don't think you can combine an exemption with a player in a trade.

I thought that was for a multiplayer trade but I honestly do not know. Larry Coons is the best in the business so that is why I checked out his site. I'm not sure if it matters that much now in hindsight. If a trade was discussed as reported than the 2 main guys were Gallo and Gay.

Mane stop that, I'm talking bout come playoff time. The only reason I wouldn't do the deal, because I probably wouldn't want Gay & AI together (Gay>>AI). That's a lot of money tied-up into similar players. If I need a bucket with five seconds left and I had to choose between Gay & Galli, I would go with Gay everytime. When Galli was the second option when STAT first came to New York, he was just ok. How has Galli performed in the playoffs for the nuggets? I like Galli, but even he knows he's not going to be a star in this league..

Because Gay has won many playoff series for Memphis.. Oh wait

He was injured when they beat the Spurs and notched up brick after brick against LAC when Memphis lost inspite of HCA.

Gallo better fit for nuggets because they don't got a guy that can stretch the floor and knock down 3s. Denver scores most PIP or atleast 80% of their points are in the paint. If they got Rudy teams would just play zone all day.

Gallo has barely tasted the playoffs. Hopefully he will mature in the playoffs just like he has in the regular season so far this season.

In regards to late in game situations Gallo has hit several clutch daggers this season late in games. I could link multiple videos and quotes from opposing coaches/players to back that.

The image below also shows how he has played in the last minute of games.

I know this stuff pretty well - you can't combine a TPE with outgoing player salary to bring in a bigger salary. This applies to any type of trade and any situations - you can't combine exceptions.
Rudy earns $16,460,538 this season (according to the trade machine) and the Nuggets' Nene TPE is $13,000,000 - so the TPE isn't big enough to absorb his salary and can't be used.

Andre Miller is a pretty good guess, I think, but they also could've used Brewer, Mozgov, or Koufos to match things up.

It's all moot because Denver wouldn't do Gallo for Gay straight up, so adding things wouldn't help, but whatever.

Denver would have been crazy to accept this any pay both Gay and Iggy 15 mil next season

02-20-2013, 04:28 PM
First lets ignore the contracts. Gay and Gallo are similar in terms of how they can help a team, but the way they do things on the court are different. From a team stand point, it never makes sense to disrupt team chemistry for the sake of a trade when the trade involves 2 players that are equal.

Now add the contract issue and this was an easy decline.

JEDean89
02-20-2013, 05:50 PM
so for 9.4 mil a year nuggets get gallo and his 17.3 ppg 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists on 42% shooting and 37% from deep for a PER of 17.5

for 16.4 mil a year raps get Gay and his 17.8 ppg 6 rebounds and 2.6 assists on 40% shooting and 30% from deep for a PER of 14.7

You basically get from Gallo, for 7 mil a year less than Gay the same production in 5 fewer minutes much more efficiently. He is also blossoming into a good defender as well as the aforementioned clutch shooter. No GM on the planet makes that trade. Also, Gallo is improving a lot averaging awesome numbers in 2013, way bettter than Gay's who seems to have reached his ceiling. The problem with Gay is that he isn't a good shooter. Someone said that the nuggs already have Iggy and couldn't be more right. Nuggs would get 0 wing scoring between the 2, something like 30ppg for 30 mil a year.

He's been in the league 7 years. Nobody becomes a different player after 7 years in the league. Rudy Gay is the player he's gonna be skill wise.

He's pretty good too, just paid a lot more than guys who do the same are getting paid.

02-21-2013, 06:06 AM
i'm sorry but anyone who thinks that 40% from the field and 29% from deep for a PER of 14.7 (below league average) while being paid 16 mil a year is acceptable then you are crazy. their are a few exceptions of excellent defenders who make up for their bad PER but Gay is not one of them. he's a good defender but not necessarily elite. Hollinger understood that Gay was a massive contract on a team that was bound for 2nd round purgatory. imo they should have kept OJ Mayo over Gay, they could have a really nice team after this trade if they still had OJ.

Couldn't have kept OJ with all the money the commited to Conley, Gasol, Randolph and Gay.

The new CBA shafted them a bit, to say the least. All those contracts make it quite impossible to put a good 9-man rotation on the floor. They had to trade away Gay.

Now if you add OJ, who would have asked for at least 8-10M a year, this team would be handicapped.

All those contracts handed out in the previous CBA pretty much gave them 0 flexibility with regards to contracts and choices.

Grizz has the same punching chance it always had. Maybe even more now and they are definitely better positioned for the future. They made the right move for them, Gallo would've been better but they cant complain. Dropping alot of salary without dropping much, if at all, in the standings isnt bad.

I think Grizz have a great chance, because they are different from everybody. In terms of their attack, they pound it low, beat you up and will it into the basket almost. Current teams aren't built to defend that.

A 7-game series against the Grizzlie is gonna be hell for any team.

Thats an interesting take. You think the fact that they have an inefficient offense is a benefit in the playoffs. I still think its their defense that will dictate what they do, but if their offense is anything more than below average, I will be shocked.

The fact that they have an elite defense (both perimeter and down low) and score most of their points down low, where most teams don't have strong low post presence is why I think they are a good match up for anyone.

At the end of the day I agree with you grizz are 1 and done with or with out Rudy.

I think the most important thing is, the trade has seemed to have kept the Grizz at the same level (maybe better) while also shedding payroll, and it has also helped the Raptors improve as a team.

It was a rare trade where both teams got what they wanted, and thats a good thing.

what the hell how? wahts ed davis shown that he's playing well? One game where he scored well means he's playing well? come on. you guys give him hardly any minutes and 1 good game is enough to say you won the trade? smh ..

No not really. Maybe slightly better but he really isn't that great.

I am glad we didn't trade Rudy in the western conference. He can look brilliant at times, but I finally GOT his efficiency problems. SO I for one, am very happy he didn't get traded to the Nuggs, although the Nuggs have been my second favorite team for years.

Am i missing something? I would take Gay over galo 10/10 times.

Salaries don't match so I wonder what else was in the trade.

Even if you think Gay is undoubtedly better(which i completely disagree with) Gallo undoubtedly is better in the context of team needs, they would drop off with Gay replacing him unless another move was made to change the team dynamic

I'm not saying we won the trade if you ask me what deal would I take this one(Gallo)or the Raptors one I would take the Raptors one.

At the end of the day we all won the trade even Detroit.

If that was true what a terrible decision. Gay can be a stud.

People still think that Rudy Gay's good? :laugh2:

For the Raptors, he's averaging 21.4ppg in 38.4mpg. Seems sorta nice right? So very wrong. The guy scores 21.4ppg but he needs 20.5fga (4.4 attempts from three) AND 5.0fta.

Again. He needs over 20 field goal attempts and 5 free throw attempts just to score a little over 21 points a game. This is the worst stretch of his career, and people think he's good still? :laugh:

I'm a big Gallo fan and I think Denver made the right decision. With that said Gallo's numbers are going to take a beating after the last two games. He has been trying to play through a upper respiratory infection and a leg injury. I think Denver should tell him to take the games off until he is 100%. He is laboring up and down the court and looks pale as a ghost.

Any numbskull that thinks this trade was declined with the beleif that Galinari is a better basketball player than Rudy Gay needs to have their head examined...This trade, if actually proposed, was declined due to Gay's disgusting contract that he doesn't deserve. End of story.

Rudy may be shooting a poor percentage at the moment but we are winning and derozan has been much more efficient

Which is why I think it's silly to say that since the Raps are 7-3, they won this trade. This is gonna make things interesting/tough in the upcoming years. No one has won or lost this trade already. It's all TBD, especially for TOR and MEM. A lot of long-term repercussions.

do me a favor and compare Deng, Gallo's and Gay's statlines and then STFU, you have no idea what you're talking about. Then also understand that Gallo makes a lot less than either of these players.
