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
