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 ...
I disagree.

Gay is still getting better and has yet to peak, imo. DEmar is going to improve, and so is Ed/Amir and bayless. We would still have a pick and one thing that keeps getting forgotten about in this del is Dante Jones who is a very solid defender on the wings. the result of this trade would make the playoffs easily next season and given time ot grow together would become a very formidable team. Still lacking a decent 2 way center there but that could come via mle or draft.

And I would fully expect for Posey to be bought out as well netting a bit more capspace(as long as buyuout is less than the 7.5 million he is owed next season it could easily fetch another couple million in capspace bringing team to close to 10 to add a center with)

Bayless/5th/FA
Demar/Jones/Weems
Gay/JJ/Kleiza
Davis/Amir
Sammy-Nene-Oden?-/Dorsey/Alabi
