Adding Rudy Gay to the team should obviously make them better, but can they afford it? If you have to choose between keeping Gay and losing Gasol, or keeping Gasol and trading Gay for a one year rental and some young talent or picks, it might be better to keep Gasol and trade Gay.

Regardless, I think it would be in their best interest to keep Gay for atleast the year. The home crowd showed a lot of promise for the upcoming year and if Memphis keeps winning I can't really see it as a problem.

I think he's implying that OJ is due for an extension soon (this summer?), so they'll probably have to make a decision to chose to pay one of them (either keep Gay and let OJ walk/trade him or re-sign OJ and trade Gay). I think they should keep Gay unless a team offers something rly great... but I can't even think what Memphis would want... maybe another cheaper starting SF with a back up C and/or back up PG

They tried to unload OJ for pennies to Indy right before the deadline but they were too late. I always thought they would try to get value in return for him but that showed me that they are simply looking to dump him bc they know they cannot afford him later on.

I think James Posey would thrive on this Grizzlies team more than any other team out there right now. Dude has the team mindset and grit that exemplifies this Memphis squad.

Maybe the Grizz and Pacers FO's lines of communication are still open...

We will keep them together one more year, both are too good, at such a young age to do otherwise. We have now become championship contenders for next season
