Raptors Colangelo likely to offer Gay an extension this summer

Quote:
After Robert Pera bought the Grizzlies last offseason, Gay's name often came up in trade conversations. Gay quietly had an intuition he would be dealt.

"With [new management], I don't think anybody's comfortable," Gay said. "They're rookie owners. They come in there and they want it their own way, and you can't blame them for that. But it's a player's league."

The struggling Raptors appear to believe in Gay. 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. Toronto is in need of star power since the departure of Chris Bosh and the demise of Andrea Bargnani, the former No. 1 draft pick. Attempts will be made to move Bargnani this summer for a proven scoring post player, sources said.

"I needed a change," Gay said of the trade. "I needed a new situation. A new task. I needed a new task with something I could grasp, something I could take over. I need to be challenged. I was challenged in Memphis, but it was tug of war at times. Here I'm being challenged and they're seeing what I'm made of."

That would be a great value, but are you sure he'd take it?

This dude isn't even an average player.

I would offer him max wat Demar is making.

His impact is worth that much.

I love Gay as much as the next guy but why lock ourselves into such a contract when we already have him for another two years. At least wait until he plays an entire season with us. Stupid move in my opinion.

No matter how much they want to spend, there is a cap in place that's going to handcuff them a bunch.

Way too little. It's hard to find really good/possibly great small forwards.

Gay is a top 10 SF. Take that for what it's worth I guess.

^ this is true.

I would guess he gets a 3-4 year extension with salaries in the $13-15 a season range. Which isn't terrible imo considering he wants to be here, can deliver in the clutch, and has the ability to actually gel with people he likes.

I honestly don't believe the Raptors will have a legit shot at a championship in the next 10 years, so... might as well make shit interesting.

He has the potential to be an all-star here on a consistent basis.
The only other guy who MAYBE could be an all-star at some point, not even on a consistant basis, would be Demar, and Pre-Rudy I don't think you could say that.

i don't see much point to give him a huge extension. if you extend him so early, it better be reasonable. Something in Gallinari/Batum/Kirilenko range at most since all 3 are outplaying him.
