Chicago: No need to explain why they would do this trade...
Memphis: They were close to contending last year, and the main reason they fell short was mostly due to a thin thin bench. They have a decent backup wing in Sam Young, but that's about it last year. They drafted henry & other 2's so their depth on wing is set, but still need a proper big man and pg in their rotation to contend. Deng is a poor man's version of Gay (almost identical PER last year) with a shorter contract (assuming Gay signs a 5 or 6 yr extension), while calderon and gibson would give them a much needed boost in their second unit. For those who thinks that they dont' want this much salary back; this team is in a win now mode and need immediate upgrades to build upon the success of last year or risk falling back into the old grizzlies.
Randolph/Gibson/Carroll & Arthur
Gasol/Haddadi/Carroll & Arthur
Gay: The fact that memphis drafted Henry seems like a message that his time is up. Why not start anew in an (big) new city where he will have a shot as a #1?
Raptors: Admittedly this leaves us a little short at the pg position, but that can be easily rectified elsewhere. If nothing else we could continue to let Turk lead our second unit then Our lineup would become:
whoever we sign with our MLE would preferably be a good shooter to space the floor. Maybe steve blake or luke ridnour?
