Would be a decent piece to build a future around.. Rudy would average 30 a game for the 1st season or 2 though

I would hope the Clippers counter with something else if it's true he's available. I would be willing to go as high as Minny's unprotected 1st for next year, and then move Kaman somewhere for good role players.

I'm pretty sure Irving would start... Yeah.

There would also be a bit of a logjam at PG if we are able to get Irving... We would have Irving, Baron Davis and Ramon Sessions. Ramon showed some really nice flashes this past season.

I'm not sold on Ramon and his lack of consistency. He can create his own shot and slash to the basket with the best of them, but I wouldn't mind at all if we could package and get something in return for him.

If we get Irving, I'm with you on that. However, I do think Ramon could serve as a really nice piece off of the bench. He could be our new Delonte West... Utility player who can provide a spark.

If I'm Memphis, I demand the 1st pick if they get it. They need Derrick Williams as a replacement.

Here is another link on the rumor....

Quote:
Trade talk

There isn't much brewing with the Cavs' trade exception, mainly because no one knows where anyone is drafting yet. Any sort of trade talk will heat up again closer to the June 23 draft.

The acquisition of Davis and the Clippers' lottery pick has taken some of the pressure off management to use the $14.5 million trade exception acquired in the LeBron James deal last summer with the Miami Heat. The Cavs know it would've been a public relations disaster and they would've been sharply criticized by fans had they let the exception expire and not made any moves to improve this team.

They correctly view the trade that brought the Clippers' pick as a move equivalent to using the trade exception.

There is belief around the league that injured Memphis Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay could be had in the right deal. Gay, 25, has about $68 million left on his contract for the next four years. The Grizzlies have already given Zach Randolph a monster $71 million extension this spring and Marc Gasol's expiring contract is up next.

Do the Grizzlies have enough money for Randolph, Gasol, Mike Conley's five-year, $45 million extension that begins next season and Gay, too? Perhaps, but they played awfully well during the postseason without him.

Gay averaged 19.8 points and 6.2 rebounds in a season that ended in mid-February to a shoulder injury. He is one of the league's most explosive scorers and just entering the prime of his career, so he won't come cheap.

Since the new NBA season doesn't officially begin until July 1, players' 2010-11 salaries apply until then. That means the $13.6 million Gay earned this season fits under the Cavs' trade exception, but he would command much more than simply the trade exception. The Grizzles would likely want quality assets in return.

Pretty sure that the Cavs would not do it. From what I'm hearing the organization is incredibly high on Kyrie Irving.

The problem for Memphis is that there is a belief that they are not going to be able to pay all of their big-name guys and they don't want to put themselves in a situation where, when Gasol's contract is up, their payroll is too high to offer him market value and then some.

In that case, a trade exception and a Top 10 draft pick for a guy that they made a great playoff run without looks pretty appealing.

It's falling nicely into place, though, isn't it.
Z-Bo's getting paid, Conley's extention, Gasol expiring next season....
And to top it all off, Grizzlies played so well this post-season. He's ours.
