There’s been talk that the Bobcats might be willing to move the No. 2 pick to Memphis in a package for small forward Rudy Gay, but according to sources, it’s just been talk. “It seems the rumors about Gay (being on the trading block) are true,” one source said. “And the Bobcats are one team that could take on his salary. But a trade would be complicated.” FOXSportsOhio

I dont know if i would like this, but he is locked up for years and is a proven player in the league so with our horrible draft history i would at least be interested. I just know that were more than 1 piece away from being a contender. He would bring a scoring threat like we have never had before, avg 20 ppg over his career and has the size and athleticism you want.

wow that's big news if it's true.
I dont like trading away a pick that's high, but Rudy Gay is too damn good.
If we can send the no.2 pick, Tyrus Thomas and Diop for Rudy Gay and their no.25, maybe?

Would be huge if the Cats were able to land a star like Rudy Gay. I know I would go to a few more games a season then I already do to see Rudy play....

I would do it, if we were to swap picks also.
At Memphis' no.25, players like a Tony Wroten PG/SG, Fab Melo C (legit 7'0"), Royce White PF or John Jenkins should be there.
Add one of these player with Rudy Gay and we would be better off by taking a rookie at no.2.

We do have the cap space to add Rudy Gay. An addition of a player like Rudy Gay would help trying to add other big names in free agency in the future.

Very intriguing deal for the Bobcats, though it does worry me that the Grizzlies seem to play better when Gay is hurt and out of their lineup. He is only 25 so he still has time to grow as a player, and he addresses the bobcats woeful scoring in a big way. I would still like more in a trade than just Gay, considering how much money they would save from his contract (3 yr/ $53 mil) to the 2nd pick

No thanks to Rudy Gay. We don't need to take on any huge contracts. Plus, like it was said above; the Cubbies play better ball with him on the bench. It's not worth taking on his contract if he's not going to be elite. Let's continue to build through the draft, and use our expirings and expanding free agent money to get something better. Plus, im still a lil salty about him when he made those comments about our squad to biyombo lol

Id try to make it a 3 team trade somehow. Im not an expert at the cap space or anything, but something like this would be a good start.

Charlotte gets - Rudy Gay, 10th overall pick, 25th overall pick
Memphis gets - #2 pick and Corey Maggette
New Orleans gets - DJ Augustin, future 2nd rd pick

10th pick - Kendall Marshall
25th pick- Royce White
31st pick- John Jenkins
