Warriors' Rudy Gay: Joins Golden State
Gay agreed to a one-year deal with the Warriors on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Gay was traded twice this offseason before being waived by the Thunder in mid-July. The veteran will now get a chance to compete for a roster spot during training camp. Gay averaged at least 10 points per game in 15 straight seasons to start his career, but he's seen his production dip in recent years and posted career-low marks across the board in 2022-23. He averaged just 5.2 points per game over 56 contests with no starts last season.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Rudy Gay: Hitting open market
The Thunder waived Gay on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
After being dealt to the Hawks earlier in the offseason and then getting re-routed to Oklahoma City in another trade, Gay will become a free agent without having ever donned a Thunder uniform. The 36-year-old appeared in 56 games with Utah last season, averaging 5.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.0 assists across 14.6 minutes. Though he's well past his prime, Gay could receive interest on the open market from contending teams in need of a veteran big man off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Rudy Gay: Headed to OKC
The Hawks traded Gay, TyTy Washington, Usman Garuba and a second-round pick to the Thunder in exchange for Patty Mills on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Gay was recently traded to the Hawks but has been rerouted to the Thunder. The 36-year-old forward could be on the move again before the offseason ends, as he doesn't have a clear fit with Oklahoma City's young roster.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Rudy Gay: Traded to Atlanta
Gay exercised his $6.4 million player option for the 2023-24 campaign Monday and was traded from the Jazz to the Hawks, along with a future second-round pick, in exchange for John Collins, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Per Wojnarowski, the Hawks aren't done making moves yet this offseason, so Gay's future in Atlanta remains unclear. The 2016 first-round pick averaged at least 10 points, four rebounds and 20 minutes per game in each of his first 15 NBA seasons, but his production took a hit after moving to Utah ahead of the 2021-22 season. The veteran faces stiff competition for playing time in Atlanta, given De'Andre Hunter, Saddiq Bey, Jalen Johnson and AJ Griffin will presumably all garner significant roles next year, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Gay involved in another trade this summer....
