The Sacramento Kings have signed veteran forward Rudy Gay to a multi-year contract extension, according to Kings General Manager Pete D’Alessandro. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed. “I am very excited to announce that Rudy Gay will be a part of the Kings for the long term,” said Kings Owner Vivek Ranadivé. “He is an immensely talented player who is critical to our team on and off the court, and he is a significant reason why things are changing in Sacramento. Players as talented as Rudy have their choice on where to play. He is committed to making the Kings great again and we are committed to his success. I am looking forward to seeing a sea of No. 8 jerseys filling the seats of the new arena." NBA.com

“I feel blessed to be in this situation,” said Gay. “I’m grateful for the confidence the Kings have shown in my abilities and appreciate the way Sacramento and its passionate fans have embraced me and my family from day one. The future is bright for this franchise, and I’m thrilled to play a role in helping the organization succeed on the court and in the community.” NBA.com

Rudy Gay went up to dunk over Anthony Davis on Tuesday night, and that was something that just wasn’t gonna happen. For our entertainment purposes, folks should try this more often. We’re running out of ways to talk about Davis’s freak-of-natureness, but every time the Pelicans play we get the special opportunity to see something new. The Big Lead

While the Kings players aren’t specifically acknowledging Gay’s new extension, we were able to get a bit on the subject from point guard Darren Collison: “I’m extremely excited. This is a good step in the right direction. You think about how far this organization has come and to have players of Rudy’s caliber and his talent, DeMarcus (Cousins) is stepping up and becoming a household name (and) myself included, wanting to sign here, it just speaks a lot about this organization and what they’re trying to do. And it speaks about our future.” Cowbell Kingdom
