    Also our team thrives on ball movement. We have players that are most effective when they get shots. Not so sure about getting Gay and him demanding a certain amount of touches.

    Again no one has addressed the elephant in the room? Why bolt from a 23-10 team? For touches? Please tell me that is not the reason.
    Firstly, we don't know if he wants out. It's just speculation, isn't it? It's not like he's publicly demanding a trade.

    Secondly, why is wanting a change of scenery considered so evil? If Gay feels he's under-utilized, and blamed by the media/fanbase, then a fresh start could be exactly what the doctor ordered.

    1. trade DeRozan & Calderon for Gay
    2. trade Bargnani for salary relief (ie: expiring contract, non-guaranteed contract)
    3. amnesty Kleiza (#2 & #3 could be reversed)

    That would leave them with enough cap space to go after a top free agent PF, while still having both Davis/Amir on the roster. They could free up more space by trading one of them (and going after a legit C to play behind Valanciunas).

    No, I respect Memphis's decision to focus on their bigs, considering the advantage that the combination of Gasol/Randolph gives them. It's clear that Gay has been their #3 option, which is likely a big reason why his numbers aren't what they could be and why he is likely frustrated (especially when their home fanbase attacks him for not putting up bigger numbers, as if he were their #1 option).
    #3 option??? He plays more minutes and takes more shots than anyone on the team. The advantage of Gasol/Randolph is clear, but when LA had Gasol/Bynum, it didn't stop Kobe Bryant from dominating the games as he was their best player. Gay may not be Kobe, but he also does not really dominate games, and despite his talent level, hasn't been able to distinguish himself as Memphis' top player. If he was a legit #1 option, he would be one there, is my point.

    Why not, indeed. It is what is going to happen with Bargnani after all - minus the under utilization part.

    I don't see #2 there working. Which team would give up an expiring contract big enough to take on Bargnani's $10M contract? I've tried but haven't been very successful.

    Kleiza for an expiring contract may
