Thats a very good point. No matter how obvious it is.
Maybe the perfect sequence starts with signing him to a contract WITHOUT any clause(s) regarding trades & give it another go for a year or two.
I'm not over the moon with the current roster. I still detest certain weaknesses in Gagner's game...but...the people pointing out its NOT so simple as just a matter of running him out of town & replacing him with a better solution right away...make a realisitc point on Gagners' behalf.
