Jazz Say what?

Toronto Raptors looking to deal Rudy Gay to Utah Jazz?

The Toronto Raptors have already made a big trade during the off-season, but new General Manager Masai Ujiri still has lots of work if he wants to make this franchise a winner.

This team still needs more young talent and the best way to get more youth and athleticism is moving Rudy Gay. Gay is the best player on the roster, but he is also the highest paid, making $17.8 million in 2013.

Ujiri and the Raptors need more depth in the front court if this team wants to challenge in the Eastern Conference and the Utah Jazz are one NBA franchise with plenty of good young talent, but also needs help with their front court.

Gay could play small forward or shooting guard with the Jazz and make them instant contenders in the West. Toronto could get a couple young big bodied players to help at center or power forward, plus lose money off the cap, giving the team a shot at adding a star player next summer.

NBA training camps will begin soon, but both of these teams have needs if they want to compete in the upcoming basketball season. This deal would benefit both sides and could make one or both franchises a dark horse contender this season.

I don't think we will trade Gay, but DD, Lowry and Fields might be on the block.
Also, Gay is a SF or PF if you play small ball. He is no way a SG.

Probably BS, just like pretty much all Jazz rumors.

Pretty sure it's an opinion piece with a title looking to raise some eyebrows.

Just thought it might generate some interesting discussion.

I always go to the digital journal when I need a good basketball source.

Utah would be a nice trading partner though.

This is the equivalent of 99% of posts in the trade thread. It'd be nice, but it'll never happen, since Utah is in a full rebuild, and getting Gay makes no sense for them right now. Utah also has no bigmen they're willing to part ways with(outside of getting a top 20 player back in the deal) for a player like Gay, as Favors and Kanter would never be on the table in this scenario.

The only trade that would work if Utahs GM did some crack cocaine and decided he wanted Gay this year, would be Biedrins, 1st rd pick from GSW that Utah acquired, and Alec Burks for Gay.

If we don't get Derrick Favors for Gay...a trade wouldn't be worth even entertaining with Utah.

I wouldn't touch Kanter with a 10 foot pole as long as we already have JV. And Hayward's potential is nowhere near Gay's current play.

Favors + 1st round pick for Gay and Lowry.

Trey Burke is a stud! Give them Gay+Lowry and take Williams while they're at it and call it a night.

Don't want to see Rudy leave yet because I believe him and DeRozan will become a top 8 SF/SG tandem after having half a season,an off season and training camp together.
