I said back when Mike Conley got that extension it was going to cost them one or two other starters.

Apparently Memphis wants Dudley + future picks. If we can somehow hold on to any valuable picks and send maybe the Minny/Memphis pick and/or Lakers pick then do it. I don't care about the cap implications.

Give them Beasley. Dudley is a quality player and a fan favorite. If we're going to help Memphis dump salary, we're not going to make them better too.

I'm not surprised by Dudley's name getting in the mix. He has always been a Hollinger favorite.

I agree we should try to dump a contract first and foremost but I doubt they are willing to take on Beasley's contract. Defeats the purpose of a full on salary dump.

Re: TWITTER UPDATE: Phoenix, Memphis in Rudy Gay Trade Talks

Not sure why the Suns even want Gay. They need to be acquiring as many 2014 picks as they can, not adding salary in Gay for a low priced, equally valuable player in Dudley.

Im sure Gay will help sell a few tickets, but I dont see free agents clamoring to play with him in Phoenix. Its a meh deal, as long as its the Memphis/Lakers pick. Any worthwhile 1st should be off limits.

I'm no Stephen Hawking, but 17 million is not less than 6 million.

Dudley's contract is only (ONLY) a million less than Beasley's a year. If they are so desperate to get under the luxury tax and unload a player that will only hurt our draft position for this summer, they get our poo poo platter.

Re: TWITTER UPDATE: Phoenix, Memphis in Rudy Gay Trade Talks

They're going to regret trading him if they do. This reminds me of wondering why the Celtics were so eager to get rid of Rondo

I know Gay's expensive but so what, pay him. I mean why did you pay him if now you don't want to pay him, he hasn't given any reason to show he's not worth the money. He's a dynamic wing player and if he was on another team he'd be getting numbers that demonstrate that. He plays LeBron particularly well, if you get to the finals that will matter.

But like 8 guys on the Internet say he sucks.


Trade him. Hollinger stats! PER!

Well, that's what I thought, but I just looked right now and still couldn't find it. If I search the entire site it shows up in the "trash threads" section for me. Unless I'm just a moron, which seems like it's more and more likely these days.

EDIT: Also, the C's haven't exactly been eager to get rid of Rondo. They tried to trade him and Ray to Detroit for Rip, Prince, and Stuckey back in 2008; him and Ray to Phoenix for Amare around 2010; and they wanted to swap him for Chris Paul. Other than that, he's mostly been thrown into hypotheticals by bloggers and people like us.
