The Sacramento Kings traded for Rudy Gay midseason and have maintained that they view the forward as a long-term fit.

"I would say with Rudy, I’ve been talking to his agent since the day he arrived," Pete D'Alessandro said. "We didn’t trade him to have him for a year, so we’re going to continue meeting with Rudy. One of the things we thought when we did the deal (to acquire) Rudy was it gives him a real chance to not just know our front office, but to know our community. I think he’s really impressed by the community in many ways – because our community really is impressive. He’s getting to know us from that level, so I think it’s really important.

“At the end of the day, this is a business. A decision needs to be made, and there’s a lot involved, but we’ve made no mistake about it with him, and he knows what our intent is with him."
