NBA NEWS – San Francisco’s Golden State Warriors agreed to a one-year contract with veteran forward Rudy Gay. This is after Sam Permut of Roc Nation Sports, Gay’s Agent, told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday.
Lately, Gay averaged 5.2 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.0 assists across 56 games, specifically after his match against the Jazz. We may not see Gay’s notable performance as he posted earlier in his previous matches in the NBA; however, he still plays a valuable role on a team with high aspirations for success this year.
Gay is one of the seasoned players in the game, and fans have been witnessing his full potential. However, he’s yet to see the peak of a championship in his 18-year career. He’ll be teaming up with notable NBA stars G Steph Curry, G Klay Thompson, and F Draymond Green, which will complement his unmatched game skills.
Earlier this summer, Gay appeared in the headlines as a part of the deal to send John Collins from the Atlanta Hawks to Utah, paired alongside a second-round pick in the process. Although he was eventually released as the offseason continued, he was able to secure another spot on a 15-player roster.
Moreover, the 37-year-old is anticipated to vie for a confirmed place on the roster in the upcoming training camp. With less than a week before the camps start, we’ll soon find out what’s in store for this popular veteran’s future in The Bay.
Gay is also known to own career averages of 15.8 points and 5.6 rebounds in 1,120 games (778 starts) with teams Memphis Grizzlies, Toronto Raptors, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, and Jazz.
Gay started after being selected with the eighth overall pick in the 2006 NBA draft by the Houston Rockets. Afterward, he was traded along with Stromile Swift to the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for Shane Battier on July 12. From there on, he signed his rookie scale contract right away with the Grizzlies after officially becoming a part of it.
Fans are surely excited to witness the veteran’s gameplay for the Golden State Warriors! Stay tuned!
