NBA Rumors: Rudy Gay Expected to Attract Interest from Major Teams

Following two trades within a single week, NBA rumors have it that Rudy Gay will have the opportunity to select his preferred destination for the 2023-24 season after being waived by the Oklahoma City Thunder.

NBA Rumors: It Appears That He Will Not Lack Potential Suitors

Michael Scotto of HoopsHype has reported that the Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, Chicago Bulls, and New Orleans Pelicans are all expected to express interest in Gay once he successfully clears waivers.

Gay, who will turn 37 next month, averaged 5.2 points and 2.9 rebounds while maintaining a field goal percentage of 37.8%. These statistics mark career lows across the board for Gay, a player who has consistently been a double-digit scorer throughout his 17 seasons in the NBA.

A product of UConn, Gay has played for the Memphis Grizzlies, Toronto Raptors, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, and the Jazz. Although he has never been selected for an All-Star team, he has consistently displayed his abilities on both ends of the court throughout his career, even as age has become a factor in the past two seasons.

NBA rumors have it that all the listed teams will expect Gay to sign a contract for the veteran’s minimum. Despite waiving him, the Thunder will pay him $6.5 million for the 2023-24 season, allowing Gay to receive a total salary of over $9 million through this dual arrangement.

The question of whether Gay still possesses the capabilities following his underwhelming performance in the 2022-23 season with the Utah Jazz remains unanswered. However, with a minimum deal in place, there will be minimal risk for any of the playoff contenders that have shown interest
