Do you expect us to get Wade, Lebron, Paul, Durant, Nowitzki???
Newsflash to you, without a player like wade, Paul or lebron, we'll never be a very good team. Yes, we're not getting them via trades, which is why we have to get them via the draft. Add gay to this team and we're (maybe) a .500 team. With no chance of adding talent throughout draft and no chance of getting it via trades.

So it's very easy, if you like being a .500 team, than this is a good move. If you want to have a shot at something better, than it's a death kneel. Your choice ...
