Good comparison. I will say that although Derozan overall doesn't make the game look as easy as Gay does, I was shocked that he had put up 19 by the end of the game so that was a pretty effortless night for him. If he'll keep that up and the assist numbers maybe keeping him as a second option isn't a bad idea.
That said like Beastani said it is just one game and I'm still inclined to want to move him if you can get a good return and/or if packaging him with Bargs is what it takes to get Bargs out of here for some good pieces rather than another team's problem contract. Still 20 days to the deadline so time left to properly assess the Gay-Derozan combo.
