Unhappy Doug Smith: Rudy Gay - Nothing coming any time soon

DAMMIT! ..... we need a 3rd team involved...

Quote:
Nothing coming any time soon

Not game specific, thatís for sure, but according to a highly-placed source, any chance of the Raptors picking up Rudy Gay in a trade are diminishing rapidly and itís less and less likely something will happen.

The reason?

The asking price is far too high.

As I mentioned last week, the players most coveted include the likes of Jose Calderon, Terrence Ross and one of the young bigs Ė and I know Valanciunasís name has come up in conversation Ė and I would suggest Bryan should have no interest in that kind of chatter.

Gayís a good player Ė heís a definite upgrade on what they have now Ė but if itís such a steep price that it robs you of your assets, itís not worth it.

All it does is make you different, and not necessarily better.

So you can put the chatter on hold for now; Iíd say itís 5-95 at best that they even have more serious discussions.

Yeah, we saw yesterday how far we can go with the current squad. Jose is an expiring contract and will leave with nothing coming back, and we hope Ross becomes an impact player like Rudy Gay. Lets not over esitmate our assets just like Bargnani. This team needs a major upgrade in talent to compete on anightly basis, Rudy Gay will become the best player on the Raptors.

Yup way too much.

We might as well kiss Gay goodbye.

I'm not a fan of Iggy either. Lets just figure out how to trade Bargs & Jose for picks 1 this year & the other an extra pick for next year.

Let them pick whoever they want. We need star power. This team blows. Rudy's a beast.

I have a hard time seeing how Rudy Gay helps this team win yesterday. There's still room to grow with this team, and a need to get rid of too much deadwood, so going for some kind of a home run that turns out to be only a ground rule double isn't what they should be looking at right now. If Gay's value wasn't overestimated to start with it would be a different story.

When Leo said the other day that Memphis is offf to their best start ever (and has the best SF, PFG, C combo in the league, whether true or not)... I came to the conclusion Rudy Gay is going nowhere ...unless it was for a giant fleecing.

it's the giant luxury tax that'll have him traded. if they could keep him without paying the premium, i'm sure they'll try their hardest. imo, they've proven that they can win without him, so that and his price tag is probably what makes him the most expendable.

You're probably the least worthwhile, most adolescent poster on this forum so I'll pass on what you've got to say, thanks.
