Tillery actually had a decent idea on how to revitalize the team.    He claims Karl isn't a Rudy Gay fan so now would be perfect time to go get him back.

 

I propose a 3 team deal that gives us back our edge while making a dramatic change.

 

MEM gets: Rudy Gay, Lance Stephenson, and E Moorleand.

SAC gets: Jeff Green, Courtney Lee

LAC gets: Tony Allen, Vince Carter

 

Rudy gives us the true SF we have been missing since he left.  He is now on a really good contract and his productivity is at an all time high.    Lance gives us our edge back and his playmaking will be a huge help with Conley.  Mooreland is a energetic 23yr old 6'10 PF/C- basically taller version of JaM.  

 

Karl likes running teams and Rondo already has experience with Jeff and Courtney from BOS.  So those two are potentially really good fits in Karl's system.

 

Doc wants to get rid of Lance and wanted Tony a year ago - so reuniting them seems like a logical move.  Doc also knew the best way to use Tony.   Vince is a veteran presence and probably can gain his outside shot back in their superior offensive system  If not he is only a 2m guaranteed contract.  

 

MEM now looks like this

 

Mike/Mario/Russ

Lance/Adams

Rudy/Barnes/Ennis

Zbo/JaM/Martin

Gasol/Mooreland/Wright

 

 

*I'll repost this in trade talk too*

 

That team has a clear upgrade in talent (Rudy>>Jeff and Lance>>Tony and Adams>Vince).   Gives us multiple guys that can take over scoring in the starting lineup.   Also gives us multiple options to move on from Zbo as a starter with JaM, Mooreland, and Wright.   We keep our defensive edge with addition of Lance and keeping Barnes and Chalmers.   Lance and Rudy are better outside shooters than Tony and Jeff so that is another upgrade.

 

Still able to keep the fans happy by zbo staying.   Any fans that were loss by Tony's trade are made up for by the return of Rudy.   

 

Rudy is also locked into his contract for another couple of years so that means we don't have to find another wing next season in FA.  Lance is on a team option contract so if he doesn't workout then we can just let him go. 

 

This move also opens up minutes for Adams and Ennis for real development.

Rudy can't coexist with Zbo. I'm not against bringing him back but you need to get a stretch 4 to play between him and Gasol if it's gonna work - or even make Rudy the PF. Still love the idea of Ryan Anderson.

The court would be so congested with that Conley/Stephenson/Gay/Zbo/Gasol lineup and we'd have the same problems we are facing now.
