Gay's potential trade value is not a good bet to increase tonight against the Spurs. Sure, he is a strong athlete that loves to get to the rim, but San Antonio excels at taking away star player's strength. That fact would suggest that Gay may spend some time behind the three point line tonight, something that has little chance of helping his fantasy owners. He has made only four of his 16 attempts and is a 20.4% career three point shooter against the Spurs. To make matters worse, San Antonio boasts the second best three point percentage defense (32.7%).
