i think ppl holding out hope that gay can return an MKG type asset must really believe MU is a miracle worker. what is charlotte's incentive to do that? they obviously think pretty highly of him, they spent the number two overall pick in a pretty great top-heavy draft on him when they had a need at every position except point guard. and now they're going to give up on him 7 games into his sophomore season? when he's playing well? all to make the 8 seed and limit their potential for "internal growth"? and what need do they have for gay if they're keeping MKG?
sorry, i just don't see any franchise being that stupid, not even charlotte.
i think gay might be tradeable, i just think he's more likely to return "assets" like expirings and maybe a second round pick or extremely heavily protected first/late pick from a contender, as a best case scenario. and i absolutely think we should jump on that if the opportunity presents itself
