Rudy Gay will opt out of the final season of his contract with the Sacramento Kings worth $14.2 million.
Gay was having a productive season before he suffered a complete tear of his Achilles tendon in Jan. 18th.
Gay is ahead of schedule and expects to return in time for the start of training camp.
Gay told The Undefeated before last season that it wouldn't be "rocket science" to opt out of his deal with the rebuilding Kings.
The Kings traded for Gay in December 2013 from the Toronto Raptors.
