2015 free agency highlights value of Rudy Gay

The 2015 free agency period is showing us just how valuable Rudy's extension was. The first day of NBA free agency has had a few monster extensions, a few surprises, and a few players taking hometown discounts. Danny Green, considered a target for the Kings, agreed to a 4 year deal worth $45 million per year. DeMarre Carroll agreed to a deal with the Raptors for 4 years and $60 million. What this tells us is that Rudy Gay just become an enormous value. Rudy Gay looks even more like a bargain for his deal in Sac, considering what this year and even last year's free agents are...
