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.
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.
