Rudy Gay and OJ Mayo for Monta Ellis, Dorrell Wright, and Ekpe Udoh.

I'd really hate to lose Rudy and OJ but who knows if the Grizzlies will even resign OJ (probably won't) and they'd be getting what they need out of the trade.
F^ck No

I think that's what it would take for both side actually. Then again I don't see why Memphis wants Ellis so badly, he's really good, but I see it as a horrible fit.

Hmmm Warriors still lack size down low though.

They do need a swing man but another Big will really help them get into the playoffs.

I'd try to get Al Jeff or NeNe.

I it was two seasons ago, could have even been last season... don't remember, but they were offering Mayo and Thabeet for Ellis. GS wanted no part in that deal. I doubt they part ways with Ellis for Rudy either. However I do believe Ellis will get traded eventually. Hopefully for a good big man and not another wing/perimeter player.

I don't like this at all.

Why not give the team a chance at the season first before ****ing it up. Gay and Allen played well together when they both started.

Just read that Rob Tillery (griz court reporter) is saying all this is not true and the grizzlies aren't shopping Gay at all. This is all based on speculation that they think they can win without him and are unhappy with his contract, which they aren't.

Let's say the grizzlies use amnesty on Conley, then trade Gay for Monta + D.Wright, and would also then have the space to resign M.Gasol.

Gasol
Zbo
Wright
Allen
Monta

Bench: Mayo, Arthur, Haddadi, Vasquez

That team would be very balanced, one thing they lacked was backcourt scoring, now monta solves that, wright would also help spread the court.

It's been so long since I've been on here that I forgot how bad you are. Amnesty Conley? He is becoming very good for them and isn't very expensive. And how is Wright a filler? Come on man.

Don't fix the things that are not broken. The Grizzlies now have a huge chance of making it into the conference finals if Dallas fails to resign Chandler.

I'd take Gay over Monta.

The thing is that Monta Ellis might be the best player in the trade. If he had a Tony Allen to cover up his weaknesses defensively, he could really thrive.
