Which team can my Raptors trick into trading for Rudy Gay?
 
Some thoughts:

Bulls: Their fan base is always going on and on about needing "creators". With Rose gone this could be amplified.

Lakers: Lakers could panic if they realize they won't get LeBron or Melo this summer and be potentially tricked into taking Gay.

Knicks: Given their organizational history - no explanation necessary.

Any other possibilities?

Knicks wouldn't fell for another trick, they already took Bargnani.

But then, they're the knicks again, so anything can happens.

Hawks seem to know what they're doing recently (getting rid of Josh Smith getting Millsap etc..). Bucks are a maybe. What about the Pistons?

The Raptors can always trade away Rudy Gay, if they want to take on a few bad contracts.

Otherwise, they have two options:

1. Let him expire next year.
2. Waive him via stretch provision and use that cap space to sign another player.

Most likely, they will simply let him play out his contract.

LeBron* isn't going anywhere. This dude didn't take a shortcut via collusion just to stop at 2 maybe 3 rings.
