Rudy Gay was asked about how he's handling reports the Sacramento Kings are looking to trade him this offseason.
"I mean it's been pretty loud as of late so it's hard not to pay attention to it," said Gay. "I think it just goes to, I don't know, I think there's always ways to do things and in this situation I don't think it's going about the right way. No matter what your intentions to do with your players, I would think the first thing you want to do is make sure people are happy with what you are doing. That hasn't been the case."
Gay hasn't had much communication with the franchise.
"No, I haven't. I've had communication, but not the kind of communication that I would say I like," Gay said.
Gay elaborated on hearing things through media reports instead of direct communication.
"You don't want to hear things on the internet, on Twitter. You would like to hear it from out of the horse's mouth. Just be upfront with people, that's all you have to do," Gay said.
Gay also denied that he's asked for a trade.
"No. I think people saw my disinterest, not disinterest, but I think people saw what went on this season and kind of went on that to say that I asked for a trade. I still feel like I had a lot more to give ... because of the structure of the team I wasn't able to give everything."
Gay also has no idea what the direction of the franchise is right now as they move into a new arena.
"I have no idea. I suit up and give it my all. That's all I can do in this situation, that's all you can do. Go out there and play as much as you can. Obviously, we don't have anything to really build on. We have a new coach. I think that's the only thing we can really build on. New coach and seeing how it plays out."
