A Gay 3 way trade
Millsap, bell, burks, Watson to Memphis
Jefferson, 1st round draft pick to Philly
Gay, Selby to Utah
Ellington to Philly
Turner, nick young, kwame brown (salary match and dump) to Utah
Why Utah does it. We need a sf and he is the best chance of getting an allstar on this team. Turner if finally showing potential and has been rumored to be available. He is the wildcard in this scenario. Selby is a through in and nick young is a huge chucker on a 1 year deal. Hopefully find a buyout for kwame.
Why Philly does it. Jefferson would be a good player to play alongside Bynum. Bynum being a good defender. Ellington is young and replaces young. The draft pick they would hope for is a lottery pick. But to dump kwame would be wonderful for them. This is the team that would make this all fail may need a little more to make it happen.
Memphi drops a ton of salary and would be under the cap next year by a little. Burks is a young talent in a mold similar to mayo. Actually very similar. This is a complete salary move by them.
This gives the jazz a chance to live and die by its young talent. If the draft pick is say 2014 then next year the jazz draft a pg and a young big this is what the roster maybe next year
Pg mo Williams, for fun trey Burke, gal mekel
Sg turner, Hayward
Sf gay, Williams, Carroll (great 3rd option)
Pf kanter, James mcadoo, Evans
C favors, FA signing, tomic (for fun)
Live and die with the young bigs
but it's NOT gay when it's in a 3-way
To contribute to the topic I really don't know if I like any situation that gets Rudy here. I think he could be a nice fit, but too much cash.
Please sir...I can't take anymore Rudy Gay jokes...please have mercy on my soul.
Everyone involved is male...

Philly isn't going to see Jefferson and Bynum as playing together. And Turner is just starting to play well. They aren't going to give him up so easily. Jason Richardson would be available.

anything that involves giving up BOTH al and paul better bring back a big in the process, even if it's not a starting-quality big. we can't legitimately expect favors + kanter to go 40 mpg at this point, and that's what we be left w/ if that were our depth chart.
also, love turner's overall game, but if our perimeter corps were mo/turner/gay, then we have three guys who need the ball in their hands to be successful.
No to Gay.. not now, not EVER.
We're definitely not paying Max. $$$ for a guy who's:
- not a leader
- not the best scorer on a team
- suspect on the 3 pt range (32% this year)
- OK / decent defender at best
No no no...
Memphis is easily a lottery team if you take out Gasol. He's the reason they're staying afloat. There's a reason Memphis is unloading him - he's not worth the money he's paid.
Too many player going to many different ways kinda gay 3way.
If you could pry Turner away from Philly without giving up Favors I'd be up for that.
Sigh I do want gay though. I am in the minority on this but I like him.
I think Im straight but Ill admit that title got me aroused
If he was making 12 million a year then I would like him a lot more.

I'm open to all kinds of orgies if it means us to start Favors and Kanter.
