Did anyone win the Rudy Gay trade? Mark Deeks of the Basketball Jones blog thinks no one really won or lost.
There's a lot of analysis floating around about the Gay trade. However, in my opinion, Wages of Wins does the best job of summarizing the key points:
- Toronto will be significantly worse, traded away a draft pick, and added a lot of money to the team’s payroll.
- Memphis will be slightly improved and will save money over both the short-term and long-term.
- Detroit will be significantly improved and will save money over the long-term.
If you're optimistic about the Raptors' future after the Gay acquisition, you probably don't want to read Ball Don't Lie's Kelly Dwyer; SB Nation's Mike Prada and Tom Ziller; ESPN's Tom Haberstroh; Sports Illustrated's Rob Mahoney... basically, any NBA writer with a decent grasp of advanced stats and reality.
