Multiple league sources mentioned Trey Lyles and his representatives are interested in a new destination for the year-old forward and that the Spurs are also open to moving Rudy Gay in the final year of his contract.

The Spurs asked for more than what the Heat was willing to give for Gay, who was the preferred choice of some internally, the source said. The reality is that the way the Jazz are built, they need both Mitchell and Gobert. Otherwise, Utah essentially would have to start over. But, yes, whenever there is a distressed asset, it is safe to assume that Pat Riley and the Heat will be sniffing around. Both Gobert and Mitchell will be free agents in the offseason. But the divorce could come before that. And for which? While Gobert is far more of a team component than Hassan Whiteside, would that prove limiting to Bam Adebayo?

Mitchell, by contrast, would seem to work for any team. The Spurs could be willing to part with Gay, who re-ed with the team last summer and is averaging and trade with Kings remains difficult. Adrian Wojnarowski: Gay is still part of the Clippers focus, too. Clippers plan to meet with Danilo Gallinari and Gay over next two days. Oklahoma City have been very much on pursuit of Rudy Gay before his season-ending injury.

Both teams think that kind of a player gets them over the hump in the first round. The Kings, though, just went on a crucial homestand to fall to 10th in the West at and Friday begin an eight-game road trip yes, eight in Memphis.

Sam Amick: I had some folks on the Oklahoma City side insinuate to me that the idea of Gay going with the same agency that had Kevin Durant would be a little bit of a turnoff for the Thunder. The Clippers have areas of weakness, like backup forward, that they should address. With the Kings looking at losing him in the offseason with no compensation, there have already been plenty of rumors about whether dealing Gay would be the right decision, regardless of the where the Kings are in the standings.

The Kings have been reluctant to deal Gay for the sake of a deal. Also, even though the Kings have played well recently, only two of the four victories were against teams with winning records Utah, Memphis. Sacramento small forward Rudy Gay has long been considered available, but the Heat can always him in free agency; he loves Miami, a friend said. Gay still wants out. He says little, but he has not wavered.

Cousins wants to stay and retains strong backing from principal owner Vivek Ranadive. And while Cousins again is among the league leaders in technicals and appears to be gaining weight, so far there have been no locker room outbursts directed at teammates or his head coach. Stats-wise, the seventh-year veteran is averaging career bests in points They acquired Oladipo with the idea of making him a sixth man — the new Harden — instead of jamming him alongside Westbrook into a starting five with zero proven above-average NBA 3-point shooters.

They remain interested in bigger wings, including Rudy Gay, sources say, in part because such a player would slide everyone down to their intended spots: Oladipo to the bench, and Andre Roberson back to defending shooting guards.

As they wait for the youngsters, the Thunder will hunt incremental moves. Thunder fan: If you were to make an educated guess on the thunders small forward plans. What do you think they will do? Stay with Roberson, trade Roberson since he wants to much, try to work grant into that spot, bring in someone else? The Thunder have been trying to find an athletic forward to complement their roster and pursued Grant as a short-term solution. Three established names we expect to be dealt are … Rudy Gay. Nerlens Noel. Ricky Rubio.

Spoelstra assured Dragic this week that a recent report suggesting Miami was actively discussing a deal to send him to Sacramento for Rudy Gay and Darren Collison was inaccurate. Joerger dismissed any Miami trade talk but added he understands the nature of pro sports. What source? Pick a source. He likes it here. We all want to win a little bit more. Guys in the last year of contracts, guys who can do the things he does on the court. Gay, who averaged I have no choice but to work for the Sacramento Kings. All the speculation is B.

Sacramento has been determined to find a young point guard to run its team. Before he could slip out the door, Gay was asked about the latest gossip around the league regarding his future in Sacramento. So, my guess would be mid-Dec. With that in mind, sources indicated that the Kings are ideally looking for a starting-caliber point guard in any trade proposal involving Gay.

At this time, Sacramento and Miami are kicking the tires on the potential trade. The trade, as it has been discussed, has various benefits for both teams should it ultimately happen. The trade front is quiet now; everyone in the bloated middle is waiting to see how good they are before pivoting up or down.

The Kings may be the best bet to act early, since Gay politely told them he would very much like to leave. Keep an eye on the Thunder among potential Gay suitors. How would you characterize that conversation? But I have confidence that Vlade and him and everyone else will work it out.

What about Gay? But we want to make sure we compete this year. He informed the Kings that he likely will opt out of his contract next summer, and a close associate said the Heat appeals to him. Gay has averaged After quietly asking to be moved during the offseason, Gay made it clear last week that he will opt out of his contract next summer, although he did leave a small window to return to Sacramento. Gay will opt out of his contract after this season and become an unrestricted free agent, fueling speculation the Kings will trade the forward to avoid losing him with no compensation. Gay said the dialogue between himself and general manager Vlade Divac has been good lately.

Blake Ellington: Rudy Gay was asked what he wants the future to hold. Jason Jones: Dave Joerger said earlier he has texted with Rudy Gay but has not a detailed conversation with him. A decision about which point guards make the roster could be tied to a trade of Gay, the starting small forward the Kings unsuccessfully shopped during the offseason, according to multiple league sources.

Gay told the team he will opt out of the final year of his contract after this season, forcing the Kings to continue pursuing a trade or risk losing him for nothing next summer. Deadline for stretching current year has passed twitter. And the man is miserable. He has been moping around for the better part of two seasons. His decision to opt out of the final year of his contract comes as no surprise. It was Gay — in his familiar and typically polite way — encouraging the Kings to trade him, preferably to a contender, and sooner rather than later.

He has no intention of re-ing with the team. Privately, the Kings acknowledge a deal is in the best interests of both parties. They have been and will continue to entertain offers for Gay, hoping he responds to his pending free agency with career-best performances that make him even more attractive to potential suitors.

But the good vibes ended in the opening months of last season, with Cousins repeatedly clashing with Karl and Rondo aligning with Cousins to turn the offense into a two-man show. Forward Rudy Gay has told the Kings he will opt out of his contract after this season, meaning he probably will leave as an unrestricted free agent. Telling the Kings he was opting out was a formality and not a surprise.

Gay was on the trading block this summer, according to multiple league sources. But his ability to opt out of his deal made it difficult for the Kings to acquire equal value in a trade. Opting out gives Gay, 30, the opportunity to a playoff contender. James Ham: Rudy Gay situation has been bubbling to the surface for a while.

If there was an easy fix, the Kings would have already made a deal. Forward Rudy Gay has informed Sacramento Kings management that he plans to use his player option to become an unrestricted free agent and considers himself unlikely to negotiate a new deal to return to the franchise, league sources told The Vertical.
