Utah fans despise Rudy Gay and wanted him out the door before Gobert and Gay were even traded. Said he was a selfish player and doesn't defend anymore. It is remarkable the number of fans who hold contempt for him.There really aren't any at those salaries that aren't rookie contract players and those guys are almost never available for the value Boston would reasonably give up.
If we're going to use our TPEs we should try to get more of an impact player.
there are 70 players making between $4m and $7m this year. Half are on rookie deals. That's a pretty big pool of players to pick from. And no, journeymen making $5m do not usually cost much to acquire.
you said more of an impact than Gay, I've seen the list, they don't exist.
