In the end, Gay left Sacramento for San Antonio for a chance to be part of a contender. Spurs worked hard to close this over 72 hours.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 7, 2017
What is most crazy about this is that Gay opted out of a $14 million final year with the Sacramento Kings, and now joins the Spurs hoping to make a deep run in the Playoffs. Few saw this coming, and PATFO acted quickly to male it happen. Gay adds scoring and size off the bench, and is a seriously good backup to Kawhi Leonard for a very reasonable price.
Welcome to San Antonio, Rudy!
