Even if they DO send the 8 to Memphis, they still don't need another lottery pick. They'll have Gay, and ostensibly an excellent shot at Nash or Dragic/Lowry. Their starting 5 would be set without really hurting their existing roster (whoever goes in the Gay trade). They probably still retain 2-2nd round picks... Why would you want to take on another 7M in salary for a guy who does you absolutely no good? He's a chucker with an over-inflated sense of his game, and any minutes he plays are taking away from developing someone else.
