Re: Contract Extension for Rudy Gay?
The real focus should be on re-signing Lowry who's contract expires after next season and is our future at the PG position.
Gay will obviously accept the player option for the 2014-2015 season at $19M. Therefore, he is locked up for the next two years and re-signing at this point would not be optimal unless he signs a much cheaper contract at something like $10M per, which is not likely. Lots can happen in two years and who knows, maybe Rudy blows out his ACL next year and turns into a Danny Granger or Amar'e Stoudemire type situation.
