The can have Monta's expiring deal for him.. it would make sense for both Milwaukee and Memphis.. the Bucks would have gay for 3 more years when its likely that Ellis will opt out and Memphis would get a guy that can come in and score and keep them right in contention this year and then let him walk after the season.

Gay for Pierce only works if Pierce plays another 3 years and it gives Memphis a serious player in the clutch. Gay on the Celtics sets them back.

How does this trade make anyone better other than the grizz? Lakers lose depth, minny doubles up on pf while losing the rest of their starting lineup

Gay would start at the 3 with Metta backing him up. Jordan Hill moves into the starting lineup at the 4 with Jamison becoming his primary backup. Hill mans the 5 to spell Dwight with Gay or Metta slotting at the 4 in certain situation.

Nash Blake Morris Duhon
Kobe Meeks
Gay Metta Ebanks
Hill Jamison Metta Gay
Dwight Hill Sacre

Starting lineup gets younger and much more athletic defensively while not losing too much in terms of scoring punch (Gay)or rebounding (Hill). The only thing we do lose out on is we have less facilitating from the high post which Pau is superb at.

Minnesota gets a CENTER to facilitate Adelman's motion offense while having a three headed big man rotation of Pau, Love and Pek. Rubio stay happy because he gets someone to be spanish with. They also have the center issue fixed in case someone decides to overpay Pek, which in all likelyhood will happen.

The Lakers can't let Pau go before securing Howard to a long-term deal this summer. Same reason Bledsoe isn't going anywhere for the Clippers either.

The Grizz feel like they didn't miss Gay last year and and Gay makes a lot of money for a long time. All he really does is hit shots. He doesn't defend or handle the ball or drive much. He makes more than Gasol and about the same as Zach and he isn't nearly the player they are.

Laker will be rebuilding in two years to they won't take any deal that extends beyond that. Some team back east will take Gay. Lots of dumb teams back there.
