He'll be just like the player he was for most of his career. Mediocre trash.

Now when critics bash Colangelo for Drafting Bargnani, he can say, well...now I have Rudy Gay.

Trade Bargs maybe with Demar if we can get a really good PF. Maybe Josh Smith but idk if he'll mesh good with Gay

^As we did with Pietris. We were happy, then hated him. I dont even think he's on the team anymore Lol. Well at least we finally now got our SF.

Currently I am not sure if we will be better after this trade

Lowry/Lucas
DD/Ross
Gay/Fields
Amir/AA
Gray/Haddadi

After Injuries:
Lowry/Lucas
DD/Ross
Gay/Fields
Bargnani/AA
JV/Amir

hmmmmm

Its all on Lowry now, keys are handed to him. Casey has no control over that either
The rest of the roster looks good
Playoffs this year? Depends on injuries not to happen with Kyle and on Bargnani coming back and contributing

Are we better off heading into the off season and next year with Gay or Davis?

Jose was playing really well but isn't likely to re-sign here. From the beginning of the season we knew that he would likely be traded and, I at least, didn't think we'd get much in return.

I was really hoping that this could happen without giving up Davis. Love how he's been playing and getting better. Plays hard, is only likely to get stronger I would think.

I don't think we are or were likely to make the playoffs this year.

So, rest of this season aside, are we better off heading into next year with Gay or Davis?

Hopefully this works, but I think we were better off with Ed.

I don't know where we'll stand come the end of the year.. I don't think we're playoff contenders for sure and I don't think we'll "probably miss the playoffs", so I'm in between those options. Fuck, trades are hard to swallow.
