Default hawkfan Trade Scenario (where amazing happens): Toronto and Charlotte

Charlotte gets

Rudy Gay

Toronto gets

Brendan Haywood
Ben Gordon (expirer)

The Raptors get rid of Gay and his big contract. They get a bunch of cap space to try to rebuild the team next summer.

The Bobcats finally get a real perimeter scorer in Gay, to go alongside their first real low post player in a long time, Al Jefferson. They are paying Gordon a lot of money and he's just sitting on the bench. It's hard to get free agents to go to Charlotte, so this will get them a good player.

Gay-Jefferson is a solid offensive duo, and it takes pressure off of the younger players. With these two and solid play from the other players, the Bobcats should be competitive every night.

Why does Toronto do this? A $13mil expirer isn't worth much to a team that can't land has to overpay to get Landry Fields...

The new GM is looking to blow up the roster.

Gordon expires after this season. Charlotte would have better options next summer. The reason they trade for Gay now is that they are paying 13 million to Gordon and getting nothing out of it; if they get Gay now, he can certainly contribute.

Might as well give Gay to the Pacers for Granger (after the All Star break if Granger is still injured)
