-how well Demar is playing, both in individual improvements and chemistry with Gay
-how you need 4 solid wings and that's what we have right now (Gay, DD, Fields, Ross, and AA as a 5th is really solid)
-how Ross is still an unknown in terms of development....high ceiling, but what will his learning curve be? This is especially important since I think Demar for Millsap is a lateral move talent-wise (Millsap's good, but there are sadly a lot of equal or better PFs in the leageu), so Ross better look like he's soon going to eclipse Demar if this trade happens..
-how I think Lowry is still in trial period until next year, and if they're not sold on keeping him, having him and Demar to work with in packages is a strong hand....I mean, what if LAC is willing to let go of Bledsoe, but doesn't want another PG? Or Washington/Wall can't agree on his future there and it could help acquire him? Or if a team with a high calibre PG is blowing it up ????? (Demar + Lowry + 1st rd pick(s) could possibly attract a very talented player if such a situation presents itself)
I'm not sure it's a good idea to trade Demar for Millsap at such a soon time. I wouldn't be too angry if it happened, but I'm not actually sure it would be getting the most out of Demar's value on or off the court.
*of course, my option likely depends far too much on the Bucks deciding to blow it up...but it could happen

You have to establish position, you have to seal the defender, and you need to get into a spot on the court able to give you the best opportunity to put that ball into the hoop.
I don't think Gay is a jump shooter, if anything, he's a shot creator, because with using LAST NIGHT as an example, he attacked the rim, WHEN he got his opportunities with his back to the basket, he was able to get easy shots. Problem was, he struggled to get them in.
Anyways, back to the original topic of Amir Johnson being a legitimate starting power forward, I definitely at this point would say yes, and I'll go a mile more and say, I wouldn't be against him being our PF of the future. Only because JV has the potential to be better, or at least as good as ALL of those guys - Gasol, Boozer, Millsap, Ilyasova, Smith - in the low post.
