Default Contract Extension for Rudy Gay?

Quote:
General manager Bryan Colangelo already views him as the face of the franchise, and a source said he will likely offer a contract extension in the offseason.

BC is going to try and extend him in the offseason to save his own ass.

Can they still give 6 year 120 million dollar contracts?

jesus, the dude plays what like 14-15 games with us and he's already talking extension? We already owe him close to 40M over the next 2 seasons, for ONCE can we just wait to see how things pan out? I like Rudy just as much as the next guy but he's not a guy we should be paying huge franchise money unless we actually had a competitive GOOD team around him like the Grizzlies did.

Yeah, it is kind of funny that a dude who doesn't even have a deal in place for next season is already offering Rudy the world. Thus further proving that the move to acquire gay was more about saving his ass than it was making us a playoff contender.

The real focus should be on re-signing Lowry who's contract expires after next season and is our future at the PG position.

Gay will obviously accept the player option for the 2014-2015 season at $19M. Therefore, he is locked up for the next two years and re-signing at this point would not be optimal unless he signs a much cheaper contract at something like $10M per, which is not likely. Lots can happen in two years and who knows, maybe Rudy blows out his ACL next year and turns into a Danny Granger or Amar'e Stoudemire type situation.

BC has a soft spot for the draft class of 2006

___


Well I guess we will see what it looks like in time.. I mean the contract.

__

More fundemental than the amount of money or the number of games he played here ( I think ) is whether Rudy is the guy that will be the face of the franchise to other players and agents.

We have had 2 legit all stars here - Vince and Bosh and neither would be that player. Vince was for a brief time ala Hakeem signing... but then he simply lacked the heart to see it out... past 1 year. He would'nt stay to see it built over time...

There is an argument that is legitimate that says if you have a << insert here >> (i.e. Paul Pierce, Kobe, Duncan, etc) you can attract others ( i.e.a Ray Allen) and or it becomes easier to keep the draft picks here.

The question is can Toronto be that attractive?? 4th largest city in North America, border, misdemeanor for carrying pot, 10th in NBA revenues and attendance.

This is of course "excatly the opposite" of the supposed BC plan in 2006 when he was going to build "International Central" and compete for championships with internationals and a few select US college grads.

Kind of role reversal.

A lot depends on the contract obviously

Are you guys getting as excited about this as I am? I'm dying of anticipation at the possibility of watching Gay throw up bad 20-footers for this team for the next 4-5 years while completely destroying cap flexibility.

It's like they know Bargnani's time is coming to an end so why not replace him with the SF version of him for the next couple years?

7-26 Rudy Gay? Yeah, if anything its going to be 5 years 15-16 mill. Demars extension looks way better than the extention Rudy's getting.
