Looking at the contracts (yearly salaries) and depth chart,i think the only way to acquire Gay is through a 3 team or more deal. Colangelo has pulled this off before,he just has to be willing to gamble,which he's no stranger too.

The best and easiest way to acquire a bonafied talent or star is to offer a future 1st round pick or two in a package,that seems to be the new trend(Howard,D.Will,Harden,all pretty much acquired this way). However,the conditional pick(which OKC owns) keeps the Raptors stuck at a standstill until the selection is made
