Re: Rudy Gay..
He's not a "stud" though, if by stud you mean a guy who can lead a team and stand on his own. He's just a solid, above average piece at the 5 position and of course we would still be in search of our star player. But as Q has said before, Gasol/Davis would be a great starting point for us in the middle especially with the way the NBA has become very perimeter oriented over the years, and then we'd have to upgrade at any or all of the 1/2/3. Gasol + Davis + Superstar perimeter player + role players would be a pretty solid team. Or Gasol + Davis + multiple perimeter all-stars would be good as well. Point being, he'd be a piece of the puzzle rather than being the center piece (no pun intended).
