For me, I think the discussion needs to happen twice....once in a vacuum where only the player abilities matter, and secondly considering ALL things like potential, contract status, age, etc. In a vacuum, Anthony is the only other SF that is more valuable to me...even though I'm probably biased against him. With ALL things considered though, I'd be tempted to go with Batum's long-term discount contract, or Kidd-Gilchrist's longterm rookie contract.
AI plays SG with Denver. I'd take Batum and George over Gay because they're younger and I like their overall games better (both elite defenders). Pierce will fall off soon but still is the 3rd best SF IMO.
If Gay improves his efficiency with us, I'd move him up the list.
