The Phoenix Suns are discussing a trade for Rudy Gay with the Memphis Grizzlies, according to sources.

The Grizzlies have been shopping Gay to multiple teams around the NBA.

The Grizzlies have a strong desire to acquire Jared Dudley and a future first round pick.

Memphis has delivered trade proposals to several teams as they attempt to decrease their salary obligations for future seasons.

The Grizzlies' new front office and ownership has doubt on whether they are currently constructed to compete for a place in the Finals.

Sources? :bleh:

The Lakers haven't been linked to Gay so it wouldn't surprise me to see a deal come out of nowhere for him. That has Kupchak written all over it

It really would help D'Antoni's system

Howard
Gay
Metta
Kobe
Nash

Dudley and a 1st rounder for Gay?? Dudley sucks.

Edit: Ah I guess a 1st rounder from the Suns would be a pretty high pick..

@KBergCBS
In addition to conversations with Phoenix, Memphis has tried to engage Golden State in trade talks for Rudy Gay, league sources say.






@KBergCBS

The Grizzlies-Warriors talks stalled with Golden State's desire to include Richard Jefferson ($21m left over two years) in the deal.




I hope GS doesn't get into this:

Lee
Gay
Thompson
Curry

Those four alone make them tough

Damn it Memphis, QUIT DUCKING THE LAKERS

If the Warriors are going after Gay, they're pretty much shipping Barnes out, right?

No chance. Lakers aren't even in the rumors and for a reason. No one wants pau.

Put this in the Gasol thread as well but It's also worth noting that Gay has an opt out after the 2013-2014 season, which lines itself up with the Lakers cap plan

Also I must say that Nash wasn't really a "possibility" for Lakers either.

The BIGGEST names that came out then were Toronto and New York. And when it was announced WE got him, it was a shocker.

Same case could be here.

We could be all never assuming that it's gonna be Gay, and then BOOM we wake up one day and he's a Laker lol

That's how Mitch does it. Wouldn't be the first time Memphis has done this for us when a big man was down.

Reading the Raptors are interested in Gay as well.

Wouldn't you rather have Gasol Toronto? We'll take Gay, he'll like us better.

Memphis should be busy this deadline ... word is they want to move Randolph as well (with Sacramento as a possibility). They have great pieces, but they're in a really bad spot out West ... not good enough to hang with the elite teams in the playoffs, yet not bad enough to blow everything up.

Rudy Gay is an upgrade over anyone playing the 3 for LA right now ... hard to see him ending up here unless it's a 3-way deal, and that opens up a ton of possibilities.

http://espn.go.com/n...tradeId=ax6rjsp

LAL gets: K. Love, J. Barrea
MEM gets: A. Kirilenko, D. Williams
MIN gets: P. Gasol, R. Gay, D. Morris

This is pipe, definitely a reach on my part, but that's what the trade machine is for.

If Memphis was reluctant to take back Jefferson, I have a hard time believing they take back Kirilenko, but he's arguably 2x the player, and Derrick Williams is a nice piece to get back as well. Draft picks (whatever is available) can also be sent there, since that seems to be a priority for them.

Lakers unload Morris for Barea who is much more fit for this system that D'Antoni insists on trying to run and we flip Pau for Love essentially. Somebody (nobody better than Mitch to do it) needs to take advantage of Memphis' value of Gay, which isn't all that high if Jared Dudley and a pick will supposedly get the job done.
