Default Will Rudy Gay get a max contract?

39 MPG 19.8 PPG 6 rebs 2 assists 1.5 steals 2.0 turnovers per game
46.9 % FG, 31.4 % from three, 73% free throws

pro's: good athlete, only 23 years old (24 in August), pretty allround player, has experience as the go to guy in the clutch

cons: restricted free agent, doesn't really have a career year (but his team is doing well and is more balanced), probably not good enough for max money based on his production alone

Why I think he might get a max is, because he might be the best player available for a lot of teams that put a lot into the 2010 sweepstakes. I can imagine some GM's trying to save their offseason by signing Gay as a young potential (fringe?) franchise player and overpaying.

There might be more players out there who get overpaid but Gay is the one that stands out for me.

I'm also very curious how far Memphis will go to match the offer sheet.

In a perfect world he deserves 9-10 mil. In todays NBA he'll get 12 or 13.

Hes a really good 3rd option on a championship team IMO.

Yeah. I agree with Thriller. I think he'll get around $12 mill/per...maybe a little more. That's what his agent was seeking in the offseason when his negotiations with Memphis came to a hault. I only bring that up because you wondered how far Memphis would go to match. Given the success the Grizz have had this season, they might now be willing to pay more to keep Rudy. It's possible, but I have doubts. Rudy's name has come up in trade rumours, which, if true, suggest that Memphis is worried about his stock going up and they're trying to get something for him before they have to dish out the big dough. At least that's how I'd interpret the rumours. Memphis has made huge strides this year, so I doubt it would be a basketball related move...gotta be a financial one.

I wouldn't say he won't get much. This isn't the NHL.

It seems inevitable that guys like Lee and Gay are going to get overpaid this summer as consolation prizes for teams looking to appease fan bases after blowing their season to save up for the off season.
