Maybe, but Deng doesn't dribble. Gay loves to dribble enough to show us how much he wishes he could dribble so that he could play SG.
BTW, Rod Strickland was an odd choice...he always looked like he didn't know how to dribble.

If both teams would do better with the same player, typically that player is better... but I think Deng is the better third + option, while Gay is the better second option.
Gay is not any better a shooter than Deng.
