    Keep in mind that Calderon wasn't a rental player 2 years ago. Would Memphis be willing to give up Gay for Calderon without a guarantee that he re-signs?
    If Memphis gives up Gay to the Raps, it won't be for Calderon whether he resigned or not.

    It will be for 100% financial.

    Only problem is that Dallas doesn't have $10 mil in salary that they can send back that the raps would actually want, so a 3rd team would probably have to get involved. So I don't have a good suggestion of how exactly this ends up going down.

    Thoughts?

    Oh c'mon pillowmint, those are all Technicalities.

    The Hard part is already done; he IS going to Dallas. Let them figure out to make it work. Geez.

    I don't think that's unreasonable, especially if we throw in our second rounder and the other team either a) can't afford the players contract (rudy gay) b) the other team is looking for cap flexibility, or c) is shitting the bed this season. This would also depend on how much the raptors brass like or dislike the play of Terrance Ross nearing the deadline.

    Keep in mind we almost netted Chandler and Diaw for Calderon 2 seasons ago. I don't think its that far fetched.
    James Harden -IMO we have to add to Jose, Demar.
    As for Rudy Gay -See what Atlanta got got Joe J. The price for an overpriced borderline all-star was set. Sure JJ makes more (annually than Gay), but JJ was a legit all-star (Gay, almost -big difference).
    Jose, DD (and maybe Ed) -all 3 at least decent bench/rotation players, is a lot more than Hawks got for JJ.
    As for Harden -another major difference (wrt Gay) -Even if he gets max deal -still a lot less than Gay or JJ & thus it would likely cost a bid more to acquire than Gay.
