I think right now, the Nets are not a championship caliber team. When there is a star out there, and you have assets, you do everything you can to dump those assets to acquire the star. Nets have been gathering assets for 3 years, and now they are right there, just one move away from a championship caliber team. Now is the time to take the jump, make the move.
How does everyone feel about Nets going after Gay?January 20, 2013 at 12:50 pm #53612
Gay is not playing as well as he has in the past.
Perhaps that is why Grizz are shopping him.January 20, 2013 at 2:00 pm #53616
http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=b7yuatr … brainstorming ways to get hump out and bring in gay in one fell swoop. love to hear ideas, this is harder than it looks!January 20, 2013 at 4:45 pm #53618
Shopping of Gay has nothing to do with performance.January 23, 2013 at 11:38 am #53909
I wouldn’t be against the Nets going after Rudy Gay. If we can get Rudy Gay and keep Crash I say we do it. Bring Crash off the bench to preserve him for the season. As of our last game in monday he has played in 30 of 41 games and of those 30 gakes he played in two of them he played less than 21 minutes total due to leaving because of injury. He stays in recovery form most of the time because every few weeks he is recovering from injury. I would take Gay over Crash all day long.January 25, 2013 at 12:27 pm #54073
What does shopping Rudy have to do with, Max?January 25, 2013 at 11:46 pm #54103
Hmmm…try money.January 26, 2013 at 12:42 am #54104
Try……again. Grizz no longer luxury tax payers, still shopping Gay.January 27, 2013 at 5:36 pm #54209
I don’t think they need Rudy Gay. There’s only one ball for Gay and JJ and Lopez and D Will to share. I don’t think a massive overhaul is needed either. I think it could be a simple fix…but what? Do you play Lopez and Blatche together and shop for a backup center like Mozgov to play with Evans? I’d like someone who can stretch the floor a bit and would love Millsap or more realistically Ilyasova or even Bargnani. Only a game back in the Atlantic Division, why blow up the team for Gay? Bad idea.January 27, 2013 at 5:55 pm #54210
Who do you think Nets (Billy King) would give up for Rudy. He’d certainly give up too much, as history dictates.
But Nets really do need a backup PG (that can hopefully defend the PGs that Deron can’t.
I think Blatche is most effective as backup Center, because the quickness over other Centers on offense (defense is another matter)
And Nets need one or two DEADLY sharpshooters from three (although they may already have them in Mirza and Toko.
The End.January 27, 2013 at 6:15 pm #54211
The Heat need rebounding help and may be willing to exchange Rashard Lewis (44% from three) for Hump. I’d like more than that for Hump but it’s a start The Nets couldn’t get Gay anyway, especially since the Grizz could probably get Brandon Jennings or Millsap for him.January 27, 2013 at 7:54 pm #54212
You realize Heat would have to add a substantial amount of salary to a Humph-Lewis trade.January 30, 2013 at 5:10 pm #54413
We need to keep the core 4 of brooks, Joe,D-will, and Crash. we need to try to get Gay or a top tier PF such as Gasol or if we are lucky Garnet. so i say Billy calls the Lakers and Celtics and tell them name your price but you cant touch our core 4. This is dreaming big, but this makes us championship bound.March 3, 2013 at 4:26 pm #56034
Gay would not be an upgrade over Wallace. Maybe a wash. Thank god we didn’t get him. Watch the Raptors continue to flail. At least our overpriced roster is going to result in a playoff appearance.
