Reportedly Rudy Gay for Jared Dudley and future 1st rounder. If we were going to give up a future first for Cousins, then why not at least consider it for Gay. We need a proven 20 ppg wing scorer just as much as we need a big. I also think offering Hendo and some form of draft pick is better than Dudley.
What say you?

i'm interested. If they would take hendo and a 1st.

Gay has great size can play the 2 or 3 spot. Is able to drive and shoot from outside.

Gay is not very good. With that trade they would still be bad in the short term and worse off in the long term. Definitely not worth derailing any rebuilding plans over. Overpaying for a player like that is just a path to mediocrity, especially for a small market franchise.

Part of staying the course in going young and building through the draft is ignoring temptation.

Yea, the contract is a deal breaker in this one. No thank you.

Rudy is a SF not a guard. He doesn't have the foot speed or game to play SG. This trade makes no sense for us with MKG on the roster. We need bigs that is all.

MKG can play the 2 or the 4.

I know the contract is horrible, and I wouldn't prefer to give up a pick considering his contract (they should actually be giving us one for taking it), but his scoring would be a welcomed addition to this team.

I was just looking at the Grizzlies record, and apparently they're one of the best teams in west. I agree with most in saying that Rudy's contract is a deal breaker, plus he's not elite. If we're going to give up our first and possibly Hendo, we need someone elite in return. That's why I was down for dealing for Cousins, because he will be elite.

Not a popular opinion here I'm sure, but the Bobcats need to sit pat and suck this year and the next IMO. By landing Gay and his massive contact, they're right back to competing for the 7th-8th seed in the East every year and not much else. Land a Top 3 pick this year, and do not miss out on the Andrew Wiggins/Jabari Parker class of 2014.

Kemba, MKG, and Wiggins would form one hell of a young nucleus...not to mention the Top 3-5 pick from this season. Do that, and you might just attract a decent FA as well.
