    Default TOR/MEM looking for a 3rd team in trade.

    http://insider.espn.go.com/blog/nba/rumors/

    UPDATE: According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, sources indicate that one key hangup in the rumored Toronto-Memphis deal involving Rudy Gay is finding a third team to take Jose Calderon in the trade.

    Wojnarowki adds: "As for finding a spot for Calderon, yes, teams have interest in him. Yet how much are they willing to contribute to MEM-TOR in 3-way deal?"

    Which teams might make sense here? Dallas immediately comes to mind, given their desire to add a veteran point guard, but others like Boston and Utah both have a lot of trade chips and the need at point guard as well. They are three teams to watch here.

    ---
    Several teams would like to acquire Rudy Gay and the one at the front of the line is apparently the Toronto Raptors, reports ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

    According to Stein, the two teams are having active trade discussions. Toronto also has interest in Memphis' forward Darrell Arthur and their package to the Grizzlies could include Jose Calderon and Ed Davis.

    The Raptors reportedly have Kyle Lowry and Andrea Bargnani available, too.

    Memphis is now below the luxury tax line after the trade with Cleveland and they could stick with the current roster for the duration of this season.

    Gay's name has been linked with Boston, however the Grizzlies likely don't want the aging Paul Pierce.
    -----------------------------------

    Anyone interested in taking a shot at with Calderon. Who knows maybe he would resign with us since we're a top team in the East. Certainly would help us in the turnover category and also would bring veteran leadership.

    I wish the Pacers had something that could make a deal for Calderon work but they don't.

    The money doesn't work here. Really no way for us to be the 3rd team and it will be a tough find for a good parter. A team like ORL would be a good fit since they have a TPE of course you would have to give them a pick for doing it though. Denver makes tons of sense too put they already have 2 good pg's. but they have the TPE that would work. I like the fit really he would look great in that style and Dre can play some SG so maybe it's possible. Portland is almost another perfect fit their bench is awful he would help it dramatically but I don't see Portland making a move they aren't contenders they need a defensive big in the worst way. It will be interesting to see who emerges as the 3rd team Cavs are my final dark horse again they would need to be compensated for taking him they have shown they like doing those type of deals.

    The best team out all those teams is Boston, they have Bass and other contracts that can be moved for Calderon.


    edit: Calderon+ Gray for Lee+Bass and Melo works, the Celtics starting unit would be Calderon, Bradley, Pierce, KG and Gray?

    Would not take on Lee and Bass's contract if I am Memphis. I would just roll with Darrell Arthur personally and take Calderon and let him expire(if they are dead set on trading Gay). Should just keep Gay if they would accept a deal like that. It really makes no sense to trade Gay if you are just gonna get a few less superior guys on semi-bad contracts and for the market and team Memphis bad contracts. The whole point of Memphis getting a 3rd team is getting cheap guys so they wont have to pay the LT and ever really worry about it again.


    Not to mention in that scenario who would play the SF for Memphis?

    Jose Calderon is a good player but he would be a terrible fit here. Besides, I would be afraid of Hill's health if Calderon came here as a back up. It seems that every PG that plays ahead of him gets injured somehow.

    Well, if we're dreaming...I'd love to be on the receiving end of the Ed Davis trade.

    Although, Calderon would be a good addition. We need a true PG. I don't care if his D isn't that good. Hill's D is at best average, and he could log more time as a combo guard, his best position.

    We should not deal with Memphis anymore - they'll probably get cold feet (again) and not go through with any trade they orally agree to.

    They can have him for free. I think that roster spot is worth more than he is.

    Man, I ask this question in a completely non-snarky way. What is it that you love so much about Calderon? Are you applying the same level of criticism to him that you do to Danny Granger? If he got here, would you stop liking him?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    There's nothing to dislike about Calderon if the reference point is DJ Augustin...

    I like him because he is a true point guard, floor general, clutch shooter and Olympic Champion, he knows how to control the tempo and knows how to make the right passes at the right time.

    Are you applying the same level of criticism to him that you do to Danny Granger?
    He is not going to be the face of the franchise or the highest pay player on the team.

    If he got here, would you stop liking him?
    Why would I stop liking him? just because you say so? I wanted Hill here and I like him, I wanted Barbosa here and I still like him and want him back, I would love to have Calderon here, yeah people complaint about his defense but his D is not as bad as people think.

    Rumor is that they are open to trade either one but they prefer to keep Calderon over Lowry.

    I hear ya, just not sure Jose is the PG. Vasquez, otoh, is another story.

    Calderon sucks. He cant defend for his life
