Grizzlies plan to match offers to Gay

 

I've read before that several analysts believe the Griz would not be able to match any offers for Gay.  Several mentioned that the Ronnie Brewer trade was a precursor to the end of Gay in Memphis.    

In this article Griz Owner Hiesely mentions that they will match any offers. 

I think the guy will be overpaid no matter where he ends up, but I would sign up for that move considering our huge hole at the 3 and his young age.  He kind of reminds me of EJ, the guy just doesn't have the killer instinct to take over a game, he is a nice number 2 or 3 option, but he isn't the kind of guy that wll take the big shot with the game on the line.   Regardless, our starting lineup would look very nice if he were to sign.  I can't wat until this free agent bonanza is over, I'm sick of all the rumors.

I think the offseason will boil down to Gay or Johnson for the Clipps.

Griz owner Michael Heisley told a group of season ticket holders that the team intends to match any offer Gay might receive as a restricted free agent this summer. Heisley spoke before the game at the team’s annual “State of the Franchise” Chalk Talk where season ticket holders could ask questions.
