Chris Paul and Rudy Gay are pals. They play on teams that appear to not like each other very much. But when CP3 was asked about the rumors floating around involving Gay and the trade deadline, Paul didn't hold back.

"Rudy is one of my closest friends," Paul told reporters, via the Commercial Appeal. "Rudy was at my wedding. His fianceé and my wife talk every day. So they'd be crazy to get rid of Rudy."

It's the continuing discussion for the Grizzlies. Do you trade Gay, who gives you an isolation and perimeter scoring threat? Or do you keep him and figure out how to make him fit with Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol?
