Rudy G - Memphis - Restricted.

I expect a lot of teams to make a bid for Rudy.

Complete player - upside potential. A great 2A or 2B option on most teams and on the right team the guy could be lethal.

Additionally Memphis is kinda in holding pattern - for sale not for sale. I can see Rudy interested in getting out based on the Paul G Lakers trade a couple of years ago.

There is a reason why hughes was dropped and why no one wants ricky davis. They are both BUMS. They are chuckers. They will mess up this team's chemistry.

Neither one would really benefit the team basketball wise, and both have had questionable attitudes in the past. No thanks.

Bump - also refer to Salmons thread.

Seemingly we are now prepared to spend over the luxury tax publicly.

This might be a ploy to publicaly call out CB4 to resign here; or in MLSE parlance 'cover their PR A$$es so if they loose Chris they can point to the fact that they 'promised' to spend over the luxury if CB4 re-signed.

This might be a legitimate MLSE business decision based on BC foot work demonstrating Toronto is a "big 8 revenue" team and needs to keep in step with the NBA as the other MLSE properties are suffering.

If the latter is the case - sign Rudy G. Restricted. Next best thing after Joe Johnson and certainly better than Salmons tho I am impressed with Salmon's performance.

i just cant see how we can afford it, isnt there a limit on how much you can offer a player once your over the salary cap. if we re-sign bosh to the max, we will probably be over the cap allready

Yes, once we hit the cap which signing Bosh will cause to happen, we can only spend the MLE to get over it. So there will be no Joe Johnson or Rudy Gay signing this summer. The only way we get a player of significance is through trades. End of story. If we are a "Tax" team, as BC has said, we will be 7 mill or so over it (the MLE + increases in pay for re-upping players). The only FA watching that we need to do is for Bosh and MLE-tallented players.
