ANALYSIS: Considered as one of the most athletic players in the draft, Gay is still an enigma to many NBA scouts. There are times where his explosiveness to the basket makes pro personnel drool, and then there are times he will disappear for two or three games at a time. It is what he could become in a few years that has Gay still toward the top of the draft. Eschewing the 2004 draft out of high school, Gay enjoyed a productive two years at Connecticut, averaging 13.6 points per game during his college career. He increased his stats across the board as a sophomore, averaging 15.2 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists, up from 11.8, 5.4 and 1.5, respectively, as a freshman. Gay was able to put points on the board, scoring in double figures in 28 of UConn's 33 contests. Although he is able to seemingly score at will at times, Gay tends to get lost in the flow of the game too often. His up and down sophomore campaign can be summed up by his performance during the Maui Invitational in November. He broke out for 28 points on 11-of-19 shooting in the first game against Arkansas, but managed only 16 points in the following two contests shooting only 7-for-20 from the floor. Gay has all the tools to be a star at the next level. He can shoot from anywhere on the court and finish at the basket. Although at times he is reluctant to put the ball on floor, he has the ability to slash to the bucket and jump over anyone in his way. Consistency is going to be Gay's biggest hurdle to overcome, as NBA rookies sometime struggle with the ups and downs of their first year as a pro. If Gay can put together all the gifts that he has on the basketball court, there is no reason why he can't average over 20 points a game in the NBA. It is this potential that will have him selected in the top-10 on draft night, possibly slipping into the top-5.
