DeMar DeRozan (age 23): 18.1ppg (15.4 shot attempts), 4.9rpg, 1.9apg, 0.4bpg, 1.2spg, 1.7topg, 44.0% FG, 30.8% 3PT, 81.9% FT

Granger is still acquirable and when healthy,he may be a better fit than Gay with his ability to shoot the 3.

Calderon+Kleiza for Granger
Approved On NBA Trade Machine - ESPN

For Indiana,Calderon is a low post big friendly PG who's an upgrade over Augustine and Hill(who can also play SG)
This is a case where stats just don't tell a very accurate story. Gay is a significan upgrade.... and comparing a SF to a SG is going to skew the numbers. You're right, Gay is much better but he's not getting forcefed touches as much either which makes me think he's just better at getting his shots off less chances.
