Report: Raptors "interested" in acquiring Rudy Gay
 
Have you guys heard any rumblings of a potential deal. It would be very hard to see Davis leave, seeing his progression as a Raptor (I was a doubter).

Thoughts

Here's a link for all those interested.http://espn.go.com/blog/truehoop/pos...rudy-gay-chase

Quote:

The Toronto Raptors, by contrast, have definitively decided to make a real run at Gay.

The Raptors might not be able to swing a deal for him. But they'd love to.

Sources told ESPN.com this week that the Raptors -- who tried to make a play for Gay before the 2012 NBA draft -- remain seriously "interested" in the Grizzlies' leading scorer and are trying to assemble trade packages to bring the 26-year-old to Toronto after preliminary talks with Memphis.

Among the trade chips that the Raptors are believed to be dangling, in addition to draft considerations, are veteran point guard Jose Calderon (who has an expiring contract worth $10.6 million) and young big man Ed Davis.

The Raptors, meanwhile, tried to trade for Gay six months ago, offering up various packages headlined by the No. 8 pick in the draft (eventually used on Terrence Ross) and Calderon. The Grizzlies, still owned by Michael Heisley at the time, passed.

Word is that the Grizzlies' new regime is adamant that it won't merely try to dump salary by dealing Gay in-season if it severely weakens their team in the process. Gay, averaging a team-high 17.8 points per game but shooting a career-low 40.8 percent from the floor, is earning $16.4 million in 2012-13 and is scheduled to earn $17.8 million and $19.3 million in the next two seasons, respectively.

Said another GM: "I think keeping Gay is still on the table for them, too."

I'd do that.

Hell, I don't even need Gay, just give me Nene!

Ugh.

Why can't the Raptors just rebuild? Why can't BC be fired before he makes more of these patchwork fixes to get the Raptors setup for a 1st round slaughter and nothing better?

The only way I'm down for Gay to Toronto is if Bargnani or Derozan are going the other way. Unloading those contracts would be nice. But then Memphis is looking to trade Gay to save money right? So that's not going to happen.

I'll take him.

Lowry/Gay/our bigs should be enough to win a playoff round

Raptors - Gay + T Chandler + Felton

Grizz- Calderon + Davis

Knicks- Bargnani + Amir + kleiza + wroten


Who gets the ny 1st Tor or Mem?

I don't see any incentive for the Knicks to complete that deal. They're losing their starting pg and the heart and soul of their defense. And in return getting more forwards to add to the fray along with a D-League player.

Ed Davis my favourite Raptor this year, to me he's gone from expendable/wasted pick to a key roleplayer, say Nick Collison like. Too bad he's undersized though, that's still a limit for him.
