    I actually didn't like the Chandler trade at the time. Didn't think he was that great coming out of Charlotte. Still think he's a bit overrated to be honest. The only thing I liked about that whole move was how Bryan was able to unload Turk and get Barbosa - yet that still happened.

    The Rudy Gay trade is much better. He's the most dynamic wing since Carter and we've had such crap players playing the SF spot that it's nice to have someone legitimate play there.

    This was a fun activity.

    We could have had Chandler *and* Gay! Man oh man.

    OR:

    We could have had Kobe Bryant! Man oh man oh man.

    I think it should be pointed out, for context, that since the trade fell through Chandler has gone on to:

    -Win a Championship, while being credited as the 'Heart and Soul' of the Team.
    -Become an All-Star.
    -Record the 3rd highest Field Goal percentage in League History (67.9%).
    -Be named Second Team All-Defense.
    -Be named Defensive Player of the Year.
    -Average basically a Double-Double over those 3 years.


    With all that said, I still take the Gay trade I think .. but man its hard to say.

    Didn't we have a chance to sign him as well before he signed with New York? The same summer we poached Casey from Dallas?

    The question is, would Chandler have reached those heights had he not played for a Championship calibre team (vs. a lottery team like the Raptors)? He was a 9-year veteran before the Dallas trade, and nobody was considering him "all-NBA" back then.

    this is a hard one to gauge. i liked both deals. Chandler even back then was considered a strong rebounder & good post D it was injury concerns that stop him from being all NBA back then..who knows how he would have felt about T.O though, he prob wouldnt have resigned..Gay genuinely seems to like it here & as long as this team keeps taking steps forward id say theres a very good chance he resigns here, so from a long term perspective id say the Gay deal makes more sense i guess

    That is a good question.

    There are too many variables.

    Personally, I'd rather have Rudy and am pleased the way Calderon's contract worked out to benefit the team moving forward.
    Too many variables is an understatement.
