Default Rudy Gay to Spurs - 2 years 17m with player option

Per Woj. Solid deal, given he stays healthy.

a steal and essentially a prove it deal. I could definitely see Gay actually becoming efficient in the Spurs system but granted Aldridge hasnt been a success there.

Spurs finally made a move. Could be a steal if he buys in into the Spurs system. Also another body to throw at Durant. Now will they trade LMA before the season starts?

Who's gonna take LMA that will give the Spurs a solid return?

This is how the Spurs remain relevant. Getting vets on below market deals.

They're getting a starter-level player on a backup deal.

No idea man. I still think Buford won't take a deal where they get finessed just to get rid of a disgruntled LMA. Might aswell play him until someone offers them a solid return.

The more they wait, the older he gets, the less value he has in a trade. Keep in mind he is 31, has had illnesses and won't get any quicker or stronger as time goes on.

In b4 the "Duncan's retired, but now the Spurs just got gay again" joke.

Not sure how to feel about this, but love the prospect of him coming off the bench.

The bench will be filthy good if Manu returns.

He's got 1 year plus a player option. Not sure why they need to move him at all.
