Default Re: Official: Rudy Gay to Raptors for Ed Davis and Calderon

This makes the Derozan extension even more mind-boggling considering he is simply a carbon-copy of the recent Rudy Gay, but worse.

Hopefully Rudy is prepped by his agent on what needs to be done next:

Rudy: "I love Toronto. The city is great, the fans are great and I hope to stay for a long time."

Colangelo: "Ok, $80 million. If you could just sign here..."

Lol. So sad that this is probably the way things will unfold.

Don't like this at all. Davis and Calderon were my two favorite Raptors (although I do know it made sense to trade Jose).

Mildly surprised that Colangelo didn't find a way to include Ross and our next first rounder into the deal too.

Jose is expiring and will probably re-sign here in the offseason. We pretty much dealt Ed Davis for Rudy Gay, a 2nd round pick and cash. Good deal for the Raps.

What.

A.

DISASTER.

If I'm doing my math right, the Raptors currently have about $71M in salaries committed to 2013 before amnesties and trades. And now, no draft picks. This makes them a... 7th place team for the next 2 years as is? Maybe? Wonderful. Love those first round blowouts.

Awful. AWFUL.

There HAS to be something more, right? I mean, we still have all of our picks in 2014 to trade away? What about Valanciunis? If we're going all in might as well go all the way and shoot for 6th!

Holy crapola.

Obviously colangelo loves Bargnani but if he wants to avoid hate from the fans being taken even farther either kleiza or fields or both need to be packaged together with bargnani for a new pf


I think Lowry can be pleased over the next year as the clear cut #1 pg but one more piece needs added because I think gay and Lowry would be better as the #2 and 3 options as opposed to 1 and 2

I'm really curious to know what you think a package like this would net the team.

Best part of that Hollinger analysis is that John Hollinger is the one making the trades in real life for Memphis now.

Default Re: Official: Rudy Gay to Raptors for Ed Davis and Calderon

I'm dying to hear as to what the narrative will be now when it comes to extending Derozan, signing Fields, drafting Ross and now trading for Gay.




"Depth at the 2 and 3 spots in the NBA is paramount to building a winning team. We felt that we had to address these issues and all those moves were leading up to us adding Rudy."


Does that sound about right?

RT @ekoreen Colangelo told NBA TV he's shopping Andrea Bargnani. Has talked with agent about moving him, but won't just trade him to trade him.


I will enjoy watching someone else's problem play for the Toronto Raptors.

I guess one positive is we won't be seeing the 5 year $55 mill extension for Ed Davis this offseason we all know Colangelo was going to offer up.

Default Re: Official: Rudy Gay to Raptors for Ed Davis and Calderon

Ok so BC says he's not gonna trade Bargs just to trade him. I wonder to myself, now that the whole package him with Lowry or Calderon option is out the window, what are the chances of someone just straight up wanting to take him and the remaining years on his contract based on how much they like him and want his talents? Not only is that extremely unlikely, we'd probably also have to sweeten the pot by throwing in a draft pick or something. I bet teams are gonna be like "i'll take Bargs off your hands if you give us a 1st or Ross." Rudy Gay wasn't the piece we need. And yeah Ed is replaceable but in a deal like this which arguably might not even make us much better, it simply wasn't worth it.

That's what I mean... the other option to what you've said here is the trading team says "here's our horrible contract back". Unless BC can swindle some poor sap into giving value back, I certainly don't see a second trade coming that pushes this team into any sort of upper echelon.

If this Rudy Gay trade happened during the off-season the hype on this board would have been unreal.

I'm pretty sure we can find an acceptable trade for AB. There is always someone dumber out there.
