Calderon and ED are clearly not going to land you Gay. More teams will have to be involved.

Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
[QUOTE=Craiger;181778]I'm not sure why Demar would be easier to trade next year than this year. His new contract doesn't start until next year at which point the team would be trying to trade a 9 mil contract as opposed to a 4 mil contract. (Demar also doesn't have a poison pill contract - that refers to low front end contracts that jump at the end of their term so that the 'average cost' of the contract makes it unaffordable for a team)
I was under the impression when a player is signed to an early extension they can't be traded for the current salary and the extension effects it some how. Poison pill was the wrong term but I don't think it is just his current salary that i factored in. Maybe I'm wong
TRADE 1: http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=bacx9u3
* Utah would likely waive Collins & Barbosa
* Toronto would send 2 2nd round picks to Utah
* Utah would send a 1st round pick to Memphis
* Toronto would send a 2nd round pick to Boston
* Boston would send a 1st round pick to Toronto
TRADE 2: http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=atq2plq
* Minnesota would send a 1st round pick to Lakers (Memphis' 2013 pick, which is already owed to Minny)
* Toronto would send a 1st round pick to Lakers (from Boston in Trade #1)

Dreaming I know... but on the surface they actually make sense to me...

I think whats also making losing Ed easier to swallow is the sudden improvement of Amir.
Although Ed's putbacks and pump-fake dunks in traffic will be sorely, sorely missed.
Ryan wolstat says on twitter that based on what he's heard he thinks "it's 70% likely the raptors aquire Rudy Gay"
he said there are "many many factors at play. Tons of stuff going on, but there's a good chance it happens before the deadline"
