NetsDaily is reporting that Peter Vecsey has tweeted that the Nets have a "high interest" in trading for Rudy Gay in some sort of three-team deal.
Here’s NetsDaily’s Net Income with the scoop:
Once again on Monday, Peter Vecsey engaged with NetsDaily fans and others on Brooklyn’s pursuit of Rudy Gay. Vecsey in response to a fan’s question tweeted the Nets interest in pursuing Gay as "High but not to the point of going overboard. Commitment to Gay’s contract is overboard enough." Gay is owed, with a player option in 2014–2015, $54 million over the next three years.
Here’s the Vecsey tweet we’re talking about:

It’s hard to see which players from the Nets’ roster would be traded to the Grizzlies to make a Rudy Gay deal work. Vecsey said as much on Twitter, adding that the Nets would "need to use another team to get Grizzlies a player they want."
The Nets and Grizzlies play each other on Friday in Memphis, so expect this topic to come up more between now and then.
