So Rudy Gay, Demar Derozan, Landry Fields and Terrence Ross all on the same team while on the other hand Memphis is willing to take just Jose Calderon and Ed Davis for Gay?

they might as well just trade him for nothing. I thought they would be moving him to get legit pieces back since they already shredded six million from the tax on the cleveland trade. I doubt they trade him this year. But he's 100% gone in the offseason. Him or ZBo

Great deal for the Grizz.

If they unload Randolph that Ed Davis & Gasol front court with cap space
this would be a much better deal

Hmm...We would have to move DD since him and Gay are the same player...Wonder if ATL would do DD/bi*chnani/Picks for Hordford...Just wishful thinking

I'd only like this trade if Bargnani was traded as well, not even in the same deal, just traded. Like Rubix said, we can't have all that money invested into 3-4 guys who aren't even that good...

I agree somewhat that Ed is ok, but at the same time, you have to look at it from this guys perspective, he's 100% correct.

This was posted on realgm:

I think people grossly overvalue Ed Davis' potential upside and value as a trade a.sset. As well as hes played this year, he still projects to be a fringe NBA starter.

Lamarcus Aldridge
Chris Bosh
David Lee
Serge Ibaka
Anthony Davis
Blake Griffin
Paul Milsap
Al Horford
Demarcus COusins
Kevin Love
Josh Smith
Ryan Anderson
Andre Drummond

The 13 guys above are all relatively young and are either in their prime or will enter their prime in years to come. Which one of these guys does Ed Davis project to be better than?? (rhetorical question).

After this, there are tonnes of other young guys with their best years ahead of them like:

Tristan Thompson
Kenneth Faried
Derrick Favors
Taj Gibson
Larry Sanders
Thomas Robinson
Ersan Ilyasova
Nicholas Vujevic
Andrew Nicholson
Derrick Williams
Enes Kanter
etc.
the list goes on and on. Ed Davis' name fits in the mix here but I would take several of these guy over him without thinking twice.

Then you can factor in the list of the guys below who may be old but still have gas left in the tank to play at a competive level:

Dirk Nowitzki
Tim Duncan
Kevin Garnett
Carlos Boozer
Zach Randolph
Anderson Varejao
Pau Gasol
Al Jefferson
Amare Stoudemire
David West

Bottom line is that the NBA is loaded with PF talent. Theres not much Ed does that you cant get from Amir Johnson. Amir is already signed long term whereas theres a good chance Ed will bolt after his rookie contract expires next year unless the Raptors grossly overpay. With so much PF talent out there, there is no reason why the Raptors should have to overpay. It makes logical sense now to trade Ed for an upgrade an another position where you can get a player with potential to be top 10 at his position.
He's on the ball here, Ed is good... But he's not THAT good to be drooling over, I think its a good trade for us... Calderon is probably gone after this season, and Ed is replaceable...

I don't see Memphis moving Gay unless they get a SF in return.

For a deal like that happens I would think a 3rd and 4th team would have to be included. Maybe something like this works.

Gay to Toronto
Calderon to Dallas
Marion/Davis to Memphis

A few more players would have to be included.

Would be funny if Joe Johnson wasn't better than everyone on your team even if you got Gay

Joe Johnson shooting almost 40% from 3

and thats while getting double teamed who on your roster ever gets doubled
