Re: UPDATE: Gay to Raptors agreed in principle MERGED

Why would the Grizzlies need him to be? Gay topped out as "Fourth best offensive player on a darkhorse contender". So really the Grizz don't need much more than that from him.

Tayshaun Prince is one of them.

I love the trade for Memphis. They cut salary and might have even improved. They at least got deeper. In addition to Ed Davis, Prince is a very good fit on a mature, defensive minded team. Even Austin Daye could be a rotation player as the backup SF, he'll never be as good as his skill set suggests he should be, but he is valuable as a floor spacer.

The post I quoted said that Davis should be able to step in for Randolph when he slows down/is traded. If they're saying that Davis can be a stopgap starter, then sure. Seemed to be saying that Davis is a Randolph replacement, which he isn't.

Seriously? In what world do the Pistons turn this trade down? There isn't a single bad thing that you can say about this trade for Detroit. Even if Calderon were completely incapable of taking the floor - this would be a winning deal for Detroit.

Re: UPDATE: Gay to Raptors agreed in principle MERGED

Is Prince still any good? I honestly haven't watched a Pistons game in years. I mean I saw his numbers for the season, but are they just the byproduct of being on a bad team?

Gay looks like a dropped off a bit this year, but the Grizz could have easily waited until the offseason to find a trade for him.

They have Arthur to replace Speights as the main backup for ZBo and Gasol. Of course given Arthur's injury history I understand why they were looking for another backup.

ZBo's game doesn't rely on athleticism, so him slowing down doesn't matter as much as it does with a lot of other big men.

The Ed Davis love on this board is intense. He put up some ok numbers on a bad team. Is there something I'm missing? Seems like another inconsistent young big man.

LOL, better with his T-shirt too. That guy might of went to UK 10 years ago and this was the first time he would of saw Prince play in person.

Maybe he should sue the Pistons like the Spurs fan did in regards to the game at Miami?

At least Brandon Knight was still on the Pistons.

...maybe from a financial perspective. Idk - I don't keep myself up to date on the rules and regulations surrounding salary caps and things of the sort...that's not what I love about the game of basketball. In no way does this deal make Detroit a better basketball team. They were the third team in my "if not all three" comment tho

Re: UPDATE: Gay to Raptors agreed in principle MERGED

Sounds like Memphis may have blew it with Hollins too. Before the trade:

“If they break up the team and get rid of everybody, I’ll coach them until the season’s over,” he said. “Then I’ll make a decision about what I’m going to do.”


After the trade:

“When you have champagne taste, you can't be on a beer budget. It's a small market and I understand the economics of being in a small market."

Re: UPDATE: Gay to Raptors agreed in principle MERGED

I've thought Memphis was better without Gay since early 2011 when he went down and they turned into a juggernaut. He takes shots away from their most effective offensive options (Randolph and Gasol), and their defense isn't as aggressive with him in there. He is a good player, but he made Memphis worse on both ends.

This is a good trade for Memphis.

I don't like Memphis' rotation since this trade. Playing Jerryd Bayless 35 minutes a night is not a longterm winning strategy.
