Rudy Gay: I can make the Sacramento Kings great

Published Add your comment

Sacramento Kings forward, Rudy Gay says is yet to make a decision over his future as he mulls a potential $19 million one-year deal in Sacramento.

If Gay opts out of the deal, the former Toronto Raptor could seek a secure, long-term deal with the Kings or elsewhere. Most players would probably be unwilling to stay with a team close to the bottom of the Western Conference, but Gay believes he can turn the Kings around.

"I’m not the age right now where I just have to be on a championship team,” he says. “Right now, I’m at the age where I can still make a good team great. Rebuilding, I possibly could do that too."

Gay was drafted by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2006 and was traded to the Raptors in January of 2013. After an unsuccessful stint in Toronto, Gay was traded to the Kings but Sacramento have the third worst record in the West and out of playoff contention.

If Gay were to stay for a one-year deal with the Kings, he could join a packed 2015 free agency class with Kyrie Irving, Rajon Rondo and Damian Lillard.

However, as of right now, Gay still has no idea what he will do: “I don’t know. My gut tells me different things every day.”
