Community Shootaround: Rudy Gay

Rudy Gay, whose contract will expire after this season, clearly doesn’t want to be in Sacramento long-term. However, the Kings may be reluctant to trade him away since he’s playing well and the team is in position to end its playoff drought, as Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors details in his Trade Candidate piece.

If the Kings decide to pull the trigger on a trade, Gay would fit in nicely with several teams. Adams lists the Magic, Thunder, Pacers and Rockets among the teams to watch out for.

That leads us to tonight’s topic: Which team would be the best fit for Rudy Gay?

The Magic have some interesting pieces to offer the Kings. The Thunder could offer Sacramento a point guard of the future in Cameron Payne. The Pacers’ path to acquiring Gay could involve sending Monta Ellis plus a draft pick, as Adams suggested, to the Kings. The Rockets would need to get creative if they are going to acquire Gay without giving away a member of their core, but GM Daryl Morey has been known to make surprising deal or two.

Are one of these teams the best fit for Gay or would joining another franchise be best for his game? Let us know in the comment section below. We look forward to what you have to say!

    Here’s a trade idea involving the Kings, Clippers, and Pacers. The Kings would get Austin Rivers (from Clippers) and Monta Ellis (from Pacers). The Clippers would get Gay (from the Kings) and Willie Cauley-Stein (from Kings). The Pacers would get Arron Afflalo (from Kings) and Jamal Crawford (from Clippers). I actually thought of this trade on Christmas weekend

          Crawford and Rivers aren’t eligible to be dealt until January 15, but even after that date, Indiana would need to send out more salary to make this deal work. Ellis ($10.76MM) isn’t enough to get both Crawford ($13.25MM) and Afflalo ($12.5MM).
