Eye on Basketball Podcast: Rudy Gay traded to Toronto

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

With Rudy Gay traded to the Toronto Raptors and the Memphis Grizzlies shedding salary, Matt Moore joins me to break down all aspects of the trade. Even though this was a salary dump for the Grizzlies, did they get back enough in return and leave themselves flexibility for the future? Is acquiring Gay a smart thing for the Raptors given their salary cap situation? How many options does this deal leave for the Detroit Pistons moving forward with all of their financial flexibility coming up?

We also look into what happened Wednesday night in the NBA. How serious was the scuffle between the Los Angeles Clippers and Greg Stiemsma of the Minnesota Timberwolves? What was the reason he didn't retaliate? Are the Los Angeles Lakers going to have to start another new season after their loss to the Phoenix Suns? And how good are the Denver Nuggets at home?

We discuss all of that, plus preview Thursday night's games and give you all of the pro tips you need for catching the garter at a wedding reception.
