As for Memphis, they add another big. Gasol, Davis, Arthur and ZBo? I don't see how they're gonna properly allocate their minutes. Would have made more sense if they traded Gay for a wing player.
That's why they flipped Calderon for 2 wings...

And hell, the contract wasn't even awarded to him due to his ability to play, Raptors know they overpaid him but did it so they couldn't trade him for Nash so I don't see why you're trying to say he'll live up to the contract when I highly doubt the Raptors' front office even thought he would live up to it.
we don't know what's going to happen in the future, if he will manage to regain his shooting form of old after he's fully recovered or not, but we do know that right now he isn't worth that contract. just admit it.
I'm speaking in 0 hypotheticals actually. Which is why I'm saying it's to be determined. Right now, no. I've never said otherwise. Again, this is pointless and silly. You guys know more than anyone else could though, clearly.
