The Charlotte Bobcats are "aggressively" pursuing Rudy Gay, but they "may not have enough," according Hoopsworld publisher Steve Kyler.  And Kyler reports that he wouldn't be surprised to see the Orlando Magic play facilitator in getting Gay out of Memphis. Kyler reports that "the Bobcats are looking for deals" and would ditch the "build it through the draft" philosophy for the right player. Not so fast, says Bobcats beat writer Rick Bonnell. Via Twitter (here, here and here): "The big rumor links Bobcats to Rudy Gay. But at what price? Gay makes $17.9M next season and $19.3M following season.  Would Bobcats absorb all that salary (Memphis has a luxury tax problem) and send mucho assets to Grizzlies? I'm confident Grizzlies dropped Bobcats' name to tell Wizards they might have competition for Gay. An old trick." So it's all gamesmanship to get the Wizards to give up more assets for Gay? The rumor was Bradley Beal would headline a package of players. Take it all with a grain of salt.  The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported earlier this week that the Grizz would likely sit tight for the year, unless it received an offer that it can't refuse for Gay, and try to contend in the Western Conference.  Gay's name has also been linked to half the league: the Phoenix Suns, Toronto Raptors, Minnesota Timberwolves, Sacramento Kings, and Golden State Warriors.
