Kings' Rudy Gay: Officially opts out of contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (Achilles) officially opted out of the final year of his contract with the Kings on Monday and will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, Zach Lowe of ESPN reports.

Gay announced back in May that this was his plan and he stuck with it, as despite going down with a torn Achilles in mid-January, the swingman will walk away from the $14.3 million the Kings would have owed him for the 2017-18 season. Whether he gets a pay raise or not this offseason ultimately depends on how healthy he is, and Gay has said that his rehab is on schedule and that he doesn't expect to be limited for the start of next season.

Kings' Rudy Gay: Will opt out of contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (Achilles) will opt out of the final year of his contract with the Kings, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Coming into the season, the prevailing belief was that the 30-year-old would decline his $14.3 million player option, but that notion was cast into doubt when Gay tore his Achilles in mid-January. Given the severity of the injury, teams may be hesitant to extend Gay a long-term offer, but the forward has maintained that his rehab is progressing as planned, and he doesn't expect to be limited to start next season. By declining the option, Gay is essentially gambling on himself, and just how much interest he'll generate on the open market remains to be seen. If healthy, Gay could reasonably command upwards of $15 million per season. He could very well still hit that figure, but it's unlikely that he'll secure the four-year commitment players his age tend to seek at this point in their careers.

Kings' Rudy Gay: Rehab going as planned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (Achilles) said he hasn't experienced any setbacks in his rehab and remains on track to be ready for the start of NBA training camps in the fall, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Gay is just over a month removed from the season-ending Achilles procedure, so while the fact that he's progressing as expected is encouraging, it's still very early in the rehab process. After previously indicating prior to the start of the season that he would decline his player option for 2017-18 and become a free agent in July, Gay acknowledged that the serious injury will force him to reevaluate the matter. He'll likely hold off on a decision on that front until after the Kings' season draws to a close in mid-April.

Kings' Rudy Gay: Surgery on Achilles successful Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (Achilles) underwent successful surgery on Monday, James Ham of CSN reports.

This is good news for the Kings and Gay, as his doctor says he will be ready for the 2017-18 season. To make up the 18.7 points per game that Gay was responsible for this year, the Kings will look to a variety of guys such as Garrett Temple, Anthony Tolliver, Matt Barnes and Arron Afflalo.

Kings' Rudy Gay: Will undergo surgery Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (Achilles) was scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery Monday.

Gay was diagnosed with a ruptured left Achilles tendon after exiting the Kings' Jan. 18 loss to the Pacers with the injury, which will require several months of rehab. It's an unfortunate setback for Gay, who could have been an appealing trade target for contending squads if the Kings decided to seek some form of compensation before he became an unrestricted free agent in July. It's possible that Gay may now elect to forgo free agency in light of the significant injury, as he may prefer to accept his $14.3 million player option for 2017-18 in an attempt to rebuild his value on the open market for the following summer. In the meantime, Garrett Temple is expected to serve as the Kings' starting small forward, while Gay's absence should also open up additional time for the likes of Anthony Tolliver, Matt Barnes and Arron Afflalo.
