I'm not one of those people as I see it reasonable to give 2 young players with upside and a decent player with an expiring contract for a star player.
Ya especially since 1 great player (not saying Gay is great, just saying lol) can affect a game more than 3 good ones in the NBA. That's why oftentimes people say that whoever gets the best player wins the trade (the exception being Melo and the Knicks but that's REALLY overpaying). Yes, we sacrifice a little depth (although we wouldn't be left thin by any means) but u can only play 5 players at once and the talent level on the floor would always be higher with Gay out there.
