Rudy Gay opted into his $19.3 million player option with the Sacramento Kings for the 14-15 season and is in no rush to sign an extension.
The Kings are interested in signing Gay to an extension, but he would like to see how the team develops.
“I don’t want to create a big fuss like it was before, but I’m taking my time,” Gay said. “I’m open to doing things, but I really want to see where the organization is going.”
Gay said he would have tested the market if he would have opted for free agency this summer.
“If I was going to opt out, I was definitely going to look at my options on different teams,” Gay said. “But with me opting in, I’m not saying no extension is going to happen. I’m just trying to see where we’re going as a team and how we plan on getting better.”
