His potential professional upside is evolving into a big NBA body off the bench similar to journeyman center Aaron Gray. Singh will be represented by both Relativity Sports and WME/IMG, and his team of advisors felt like the best course would be finding a professional path to develop and refine his skills instead of going to junior college. Those around Singh are tempering immediate expectations, but there’s still a belief he could someday end up in the NBA.
He does extensive cardio exercises and undergoes regular testing. When and if that gets him back on the basketball court remains to be seen. “We’re just taking it one step at a time right now — still gathering information, same old answers — and preparing for the next step,” Gray said. “What step we’re on, or what step we’ll get to, I don’t know. Eventually, there will have to be a decision on whether I can play basketball again or not.”
Gray is at the Detroit Pistons’ practice facility daily, helping put big men through their drills. He was expected to be one of them, signed to a two-year contract as a free agent to be the team’s third center this offseason, until the summer cardiac episode which sidelined him. That was the Pistons’ official terminology for the medical incident that led them to release Gray before the season began. “I had my first kind of ‘shock’ here,” Gray said, referring to the Pistons’ practice facility, “then it was kind of a rollercoaster over the next two days.”
The Detroit Pistons announced today the club has requested waivers on Aaron Gray. The 7-0, 270-pound center missed training camp while rehabbing from a cardiac episode suffered following a voluntary workout in late August.
Detroit Pistons center Aaron Gray is out indefinitely after suffering a cardiac episode last month. Gray had the problem, which he didn’t discuss in detail, after a voluntary practice session at the Palace. He said Monday he is still undergoing testing to find out exactly what needs to be done. He says there is no timeline on his return.

Aaron Gray is a guy that I coached in New Orleans. I have some history with Aaron. He’s got a high IQ for a big guy, very physical, a solid rebounder and he’s a guy that I know every night will go out there and follow the gameplan and he’s got great gameplan discipline. And then in Quincy Acy, you have an undersized power forward, who has a tremendous motor. (He’s) very high energy and is also an excellent rebounder if you look at his per 48 averages. So, we’re excited to have all three of those guys. We thank the four guys that have left. We wish them nothing but the best and I’m hoping we’ll be able to get our new guys for Wednesday night against Utah.”
“Well, obviously DeMarcus (Cousins). He’s a great player. He’s been a great player for a couple years now and he’s taken that leap. (They have a) new coach. Aaron Gray actually played for him, so he knows a lot about him. Other than that, we haven’t played them yet this year so I don’t know much other than that,” Rudy Gay said.
The Toronto Raptors announced Monday they have acquired guard Greivis Vasquez (GRAY-vis VASS-kezs), guard-forward John Salmons (SAL-mons), and forwards Chuck Hayes and Patrick Patterson from the Sacramento Kings in exchange for forwards Rudy Gay and Quincy Acy and centre Aaron Gray. “We thank Rudy, Aaron and Quincy for their time here. They were great professionals and strong community ambassadors of the Raptors,” said Raptors President and General Manager Masai Ujiri. “The trade gives us good flexibility and more certainty as we plan for our future.”
The Sacramento Kings today acquired forwards Rudy Gay and Quincy Acy along with center Aaron Gray from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for guard Greivis Vasquez and forwards John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes, according to Kings General Manager Pete D’Alessandro. “We’re excited to welcome these additions to our team,” said D’Alessandro. “In Rudy we’ve acquired one of the league’s proven scorers while Aaron and Quincy provide size and depth in our frontcourt. We also appreciate the contributions and efforts that John, Chuck, Greivis and Patrick made to the Kings organization. We all wish them the very best moving forward.”
James Ham: NBA source says deal reached in principle. All but done pending physicals. PPat, Vasquez, Hayes and Salmons for Gay, Gray and Acie.
Sam Amick: As has been noted, the trade call is expected to take place tomorrow. Thus, no formal announcement coming tonight.
Mike Bresnahan: Raptors Coach confirms they’ll be without three players tonight. Rudy Gay reportedly headed to Sacramento in six-player trade.
The Toronto Raptors have agreed to send small forward Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings in a seven-player deal, a person with knowledge of the trade confirmed to USA TODAY Sports. While the Kings are expected to receive Gay, center Aaron Gray, and small forward Quincy Acy, the Raptors made a major move to clear up their salary cap situation by landing small forward John Salmons, point guard Greivis Vasquez, power forward Patrick Patterson and power forward Chuck Hayes. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal had not yet been finalized.
Jon Santiago: Based on the deal reported by @Adrian Wojnarowski, Kings potentially add another $2.8 mil in salary this season.
Eric Smith: Can confirm from a Raps source that a deal is done. No reason to doubt the names being mentioned but nobody in LA w/ team has verified it
The Raptors and Gay had become increasingly unhappy with each other, league sources said, and Gay’s contract was an obstacle to the franchise’s desire to begin the rebuilding process. Gay is making $17.8 million this year, and holds a player option for $19.3 million for the 2014-15 season. The forward will almost assuredly exercise the option and take that salary next season.
The Toronto Raptors have reached an agreement in principle to send Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Kings will send Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes to the Raptors. The Kings will also acquire Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray in the deal, sources said.
