Gay is expected to sign a two-year, $32 million contract to return to the Spurs when free agency opens Sunday evening, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
While deals are not yet official, signings are beginning to trickle out, and it appears as though Gay will stay put on a deal that pays him an average of $16 million each of the next two seasons. The 32-year-old has bounced back well from a torn Achilles in San Antonio, and he's coming off of a year in which he averaged 13.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.6 assists while shooting a career-best 40.2 percent from three.
Gay amassed 21 points (8-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, two blocks, one assist, and one steal in 33 minutes during Saturday's 90-86 loss to the Nuggets.
Gay did all he could to help the Spurs in their Game 7 matchup with the Nuggets, however, it wasn't enough and the Spurs have now been eliminated from the post-season. Gay kept the Spurs in touch early, at one point scoring 11 consecutive points in the first quarter. All things considered, Gay put together a nice season in both reality and fantasy. He suffered through a couple of minor injuries but was generally healthy and relatively consistent over the course of the season.
Gay amassed 19 points (7-11 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 28 minutes during Thursday's 120-103 victory over the Nuggets.
Gay had his best game of the playoffs thus far, ending the victory 19 points on very efficient shooting. It was just the second time he has eclipsed 50 percent across the first six games, also nailing all three of his triple tries. The series is now headed for Game 7 in Denver on Saturday. Despite coming off the bench, Gay is typically a good measuring stick for the Spurs and they will be hoping he can repeat this performance once again.
Gay totaled 11 points (2-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and a steal across 24 minutes in the Spurs' win over the Nuggets on Thursday.

Gay registered seven points (2-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, and three assists in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 105-94 win over the Mavericks.
Gay closed the 2018-19 season with an off night offensively, but he still recorded career-high field goal and three-point shooting percentages this season. Whether he starts or comes off the bench in the playoffs, Gay remains capable of filling up a stat sheet and he's been playing the most efficient basketball of his career.
Gay totaled 18 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, four assists and a steal over 27 minutes Friday against Washington.
Gay missed just two shots in Friday's victory and contributed on the boards and as a facilitator. The 32-year-old forward has started two of the last four contests but appears destined to come off the bench during San Antonio's playoff run. He'll get a few more chances for a tune-up before the regular season comes to a close.

Gay rejoined the starting lineup after coming off the bench for the last couple weeks. The 32-year-old veteran continues to provide consistent production in terms of scoring and rebounding, and that's unlikely to change going forward with the team still trying to climb the ranks in the Western Conference playoff race.
Gay will join the starting rotation for Sunday's game against the Kings, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.
It was announced that Jakob Poeltl would make the start Sunday but it appears that Gregg Popovich and the coaching staff made a last second tweak. Over the past eight contests, Gay has averaged 12.4 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in just under 26 minutes per contest.

The veteran has enjoyed another solid month, as he's also scored in double digits in nine of 11 contests on his way to averages of 13.4 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 26.6 minutes over 11 games. While he continues to often shuttle between the starting five and the bench, Gay remains a viable asset across all formats during the fantasy postseason.

Gay made his return to action Friday, after missing two games due to illness. He played just 19 minutes in the victory but that was likely due to the game being a blowout. Gay has been incredibly consistent this season, whether starting or coming off the bench. The Spurs play again Saturday and barring any setbacks, he should be ready to roll for that one.
Gay (illness) will play Friday night against New York, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
As expected, Gay will take the court after missing the previous two matchup due to illness.

Gay drew the start in Wednesday's win and posted just his ninth double-double of the 2019 season. He's been a steady contributor thus far, but games like this aren't the norm for Gay, who hasn't posted many double-digit rebound games and is at best the fourth scoring option for the Spurs.
