Report; Rudy Gay is expected to re-sign with the Spurs

Retaining him is one of the Spurs’ top offseason priorities. Here’s some good news for Spurs fans! Rudy Gay is expected to re-sign with the Spurs this summer, likely for more than $10 million per season. As was first reported by Jordan Brenner of The Athletic in an article about contingency plans for teams losing top-tier talent in free agency (subscription required): Rudy Gay looks like such an option [for teams who lose or fail to land players like Kevin Durant or Kawhi Leonard], but multiple sources said they expect him to re-sign with the Spurs (potentially for more than $10...

Blogger Mock Draft: The Spurs go big, swing big at 29

Blogger Mock Draft: The Spurs go big, swing big at 29

With the 29th pick in the Ridiculous Upside mock draft, the PTR Spurs took a flyer on a unique prospect in Georgia’s Nicolas Claxton. I’ll be honest — a few minutes after making my first pick in this year’s Ridiculous Upside mock draft, even after giving it a good deal of thought, I found myself second-guessing it. That has nothing to do with Grant Williams, who I think is a fine choice there in a vacuum, but more to do with the various ways the Spurs can play draft night out. With 12 players already under contract for next year (excluding Rudy Gay, who they’re expected to...

Rudy Gay is ready to help Kevin Durant with his Achilles recovery

Rudy Gay is ready to help Kevin Durant with his Achilles recovery

Rudy can relate to KD’s pain and is ready to help. One of the most devastating injuries in sports is a torn Achilles tendon not just because of the amount of time it takes to fully recover (usually a year), but also because athletes rarely, if ever, come back the same. So naturally, when Kevin Durant went down with that exact injury during Game 5 of the Finals, one Spurs player in particular felt the pain right along with him. As Rudy Gay told The Undefeated: “You just know when you see it. It’s just like a Fireball shot running through your body.” He messaged his old friend with...

Rudy Gay says finding rhythm, ‘knowing your body’ will be key to Warriors’ Kevin Durant’s return

Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant does not have to go very far to seek advice on how to go about recovering from a serious Achilles injury. After all, current teammate DeMarcus Cousins tore his Achilles in January of 2018, but was able to return at full strength one year later. And unfortunately, Durant may […] The post Rudy Gay says finding rhythm, ‘knowing your body’ will be key to Warriors’ Kevin Durant’s return appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Rudy Gay to Warriors’ Kevin Durant after Achilles injury: ‘Don’t be scared’

Any time a star player suffers a serious injury, the first question that many fans ask is whether or not that player might ever return to full strength. That’s the same case for Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant. Derrick Rose’s ACL and meniscus injuries derailed his final years with the Chicago Bulls and even […] The post Rudy Gay to Warriors’ Kevin Durant after Achilles injury: ‘Don’t be scared’ appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Re-signing Rudy Gay could be tricky for the Spurs

Re-signing Rudy Gay could be tricky for the Spurs

What Gay probably wants from his next contract and what the Spurs may be willing to offer could be very different. The Spurs should have a quiet offseason after the draft. Unless they shake things up then, they will enter free agency with an almost full roster. The priority, instead of adding a free agent, will be to retain one of their own: Rudy Gay. Gay has been everything the Spurs wanted him to be. He evolved his game to fit his teammates’ style and accepted a bench role without complaining. His presence made DeMar DeRozan’s assimilation easier, and he proved he can still be an...

Untangling the Spurs’ biggest offseason questions

Untangling the Spurs’ biggest offseason questions

A busy draft night, philosophical recalibrations, and Rudy Gay’s free agency all loom over a San Antonio offseason that’ll be as volatile as they want it to be. This summer in San Antonio is a thought experiment, a tangled hypothetical of roster-building, basketball philosophy, and how much an organization should value the parts that added up to 48 regular-season wins and a 7-game first-round exit. There’s a pretty clear path to building on a relatively successful 2018-19, but just how much PATFO should stick to that track leads to a number of fundamental concerns surrounding how...
