    Rudy Gay deal is indeed headed to the MLSE board.

    Finally going to get to see what Lowry can do with the keys to the team. That reason alone is enough to get me excited.

    You don't seem to be very high on Rudy Gay. Why is that? He was playing at pure all-star level before the shoulder injury. Actually, last season he was playing very well too. Many thought he was an all-star snub.
    Maybe, I am wrong. That is what I will be hoping for if this trade goes through.

    I would rather see a much more realistic asset come back for Jose, and then aim to move up in next seasons draft with the players we currently have. Trade Andrea in the off season, if he comes back looking serviceable. Take the pile and trade for more talent in the next draft.

    Gay is not a franchise savior in my eyes, and can see this ending very badly. Just because he is available doesn't mean we should do it.

    ESPN sources say Dallas is other prime landing spot for Calderon, but I'm told Mavs reluctant to part with SF that Grizz want: Vince Carter

    Who the hell is Hamed Haddiidi????someone fill me in!
    He's a big 27 y/o Iranian C, decent defense/rebounding for low minute guy. He's got 1 non-guaranteed year left on his contract after this season, at $1,397,500. They could either keep him for C depth, or look to trade either him or Gray.

    Wow, BC the tyrant!

    Ryan Wolstat ‏@WolstatSun

    Raptors already taking on a ton of salary and Arthur isn't particularly great at anything (my opinion)
    Ryan Wolstat Ryan Wolstat ‏@WolstatSun

    Hamed Haddadi has an unguaranteed deal for next season. Raptors balked at adding 2 years of Darrell Arthur

    Steffi: No, we aren't taking Arthur's money. You have our final offer.

    Bryan: but, but, but, c'mon now Eddie....

    Steffi: Bryan, shut the fuck up. Two words: Jermaine O'Neal.

    Bryan: fine *pout*

    Steffi: Yeah, I'm still here. Sorry about that. Listen, we'll take Haddadi.

    Who ever said he was? Or that he has to be?

    Does this trade improve the talent level of the team, while addressing the most glaring positional weakness over the past decade? YES.

    I hope Robert Pera doesn't pull a Jordan and cancels the trade... you never know since Calderon is involved

    I'm still going to go back to Demar's extension on this one. I'm with you, I don't think he's going to save this franchise. However, this is perhaps an option to establish something. Clearly the pressure is on management to really do something. But the DD extension is crippling IMO.

    How long do we have to wait to start #TradeDemar? He'd look so good in Jazz colors, in exchange for Millsap...

    This better not be his last move. Am really not a fan of DeMar/Gay in the same line up.. and we still have Mr. Noodles on the roster.

    I know eh....fuck....All I can hope is that other deals will be made to make the long-term outlook of the team palatable.....

    Rudy Gay trade today = 3 years of first round exits at best followed by a lengthy rebuild again...
