Grizzlies Say Rudy Gay Isn’t Going Anywhere

Team owner Michael Heisley continues to insist that he will pay free agent Gay whatever it takes to keep him in Memphis. From the Commercial Appeal: “The Griz are preparing for the June 24 draft with the need for more shooting, versatility, point guard help and their talented, soon-to-be restricted free-agent forward in mind. Heisley continues to insist that he is prepared to retain Gay at all costs. ‘Rudy is going to be out there. But here’s the No. 1 thing: The option on what we pay him is mine,’ Heisley said. ‘So when I say we’re going to have Rudy next year, that’s a pretty good indication that we’re going to have him.’ Heisley’s most recent statement regarding Gay came last week and was in line with what he said at the start of last season, midway through it and as the Grizzlies’ 40-42 campaign came to an end.”

    Rudy Gay is great, but he’s not a max-contract level player. Sorry.

    Who said anything about the max? Rudy can make abig difference wherver he goes, should be interesting

    Great second option. I agree with Enigmatic.

    The problem is, someone is always willing to pay the max. So do you let him go for nothing, or overpay him and still have a really good player?

    they should definately keep rudy! he’s an awesome player and he’s a great fit for the team. you’ve got gasol and randolf holding it down under the goal, then you’ve got mike, o.j. and RUDY with all the outside shots. its all good GO GRIZZLIES!

    Rudy couldbe a max player, if he just get his head in order and actually decided to bring his “A” game every time he stepped out on that floor. How can you shot 25 and bring down 6 boards one night, and then 9 and 2 the next…

    Chris Bosh and Rudy Gay in NYC with Gallinari and David Lee… what you say? thats 4 20point scorers??

  • truthteller

    Rudy is going to Cleveland to play with Lebron!

    If the NYK’s are able to land to Max deals this summer that means David Lee is out so to the guy that mentioned a Bosh-Gay-Gallo-Lee core that would never EVER happen. Plus that four players for two positions. Doesn’t make sense.
    If the Knicks now for a fact they can’t land LeBron then the focus has to become how to trade for CP3 and maybe a sign and trade for Dirk.
    Bosh-Joe Johnson- STAT- and most players in this summer sweepstakes are grossly overrated. Top 3: James, D-Wade and Dirk. That’s it. Nada mas. Gay could be a nice fit with the Newark Nets.

    Gay is not a MAX Player period. He may get the contract, but he is not MAX level.
