PBT Extra: Talking Rudy Gay’s three-year, $40 million extension in Sacramento

0 Comments

Rudy Gay has found a home in Sacramento.

After years of just being an inefficient gunner in Toronto and Memphis who worked too much in isolation, Gay has thrived as the second option in Sacramento. Gay is scoring 22.5 points a game and the Kings have gotten off to a 6-4 start despite a tough schedule. They look like a team that might battle for one of those last playoff spots in the West, if they can sustain this start.

All of which led to the Kings deciding to keep Gay around for a couple more years at least (and him timing his next contract when the flood of money from the new TV deal is on the market). Why this works for everyone is what Jenna Corrado and I discuss in the latest edition of PBT Extra.
