Default Which duo would you rather have going forward?

Rudy's making about $16M/yr right now. Lowry is probably set to make at least $10M/yr for his new contract.

Ilyasova (MIL) makes about $8M/yr right now.... and Jennings is probably looking for a max contract (close to $16M/yr?).

If MIL was willing to deal which two would you rather have here going forward?

I was never a big Jennings fan... no secret there... but I have to admit I've been shocked at the transformation that he's undergone since the all-star break. He's become a much more willing passer and has curtailed the wild shots a bit. Would he be a better running mate for DD with Ilyasova joining Amir and JV in the frontcourt? Or would you prefer things the way they are?

I think you'd be trading the wrong wing player.

Rudy is better than Ersan and Lowry is better than Jennings so easy choice (plus Jennings will be even more overpaid than Rudy). Ilyasova would be a great fit over here, though.

I really don't think that under the new CBA that Lowry will command 10mil/yr, unless he get's back up to 15/7/7 that he was once capable of. His numbers, defence, and general court awareness seem to have fallen off a cliff. I suspect IF we decide to throw something at him, it will be 4 for 30 type of deal, absolutely no way he gets 10/yr in the open market after this season.
Just my 2 cents.

Gay is the best player for this team of the 4,so I chose him and Lowry. I like Jennings alot more than Lowry though, I've always liked Jennings so I'm not surprised that he's playing even better right now. Anything above $10 mill per is a gamble but I can see him getting $11 mill per from a desperate suitor.

I would vote jennings + Gay.

i wasn't and still not a big fan of lowry, but i suspect his back trouble bother him this season.
Ilyasova is good even a very good player, but to me we need the gay's ability to close games.
and also jeenings seem to have more that in him than lowry (this season).

I THOUGHT this would be a tough one for me as I have to agree with TORap, Jennings is looking more like the pg I thought he was going to be - guess he just needed some time to mature, he is only 23. Still, it is a contract year and curbing your instincts for a big time contract is not unheard of...

Bottom line, Gay is the best player of the 4 and the Raps need him. KL brings something that Jennings doesn't and thats defense which keeps the Raps' bigs outta foul trouble (also, we all know what happens when you have an offensive pg with no ability to defend), so I go with Gay/Lowry.

Why 2 for 2? I'd trade Derozan for Ilyasova in a heartbeat and hold on to Gay and Lowry.

Jennings is a losing player. I'd take Lucas and Telfair over him, and I hate Telfair and Lucas.

I would take Ily in a second with his defense, rebounds and 3s - he would be a tough cover. Add in TR's defense and his 3's, I like it. A balanced line of defense and offense that could grow together and be something.

KL/TR/Gay/Ily/JV.....

Add in Amir and Landry, we'd have a good versatile two-way rotation and we'd be one of the best rebounding teams in the league and good defensively.
