The Oklahoma City Thunder stunned all of the NBA when they made the trade for Indiana Pacer forward Paul George on the eve of NBA free agency. However, it doesn’t look like that’s it as Thunder center Enes Kanter tweeted out a picture hinting at a huge signing for the team:
Rudy Gay is currently an unrestricted free agent and has been fielding offers from teams so far this summer. His season was cut short in January by an Achilles tendon injury that required surgery so teams are making sure that he is healing properly and is on track to play on a good timeline before they make the move.
However, it would seem the Thunder might have already pulled the trigger before any other team had a chance to scoop him up. There are currently no reports that he has signed with the team or that he’s taken a meeting with them. So this may only be part of a potential meeting, but it looks like it’s going to be pretty serious.
While there’s nothing official in the works, Gay does seem to be meeting with the team according to Royce Young of ESPN:
Gay averaged 18.7 points, 0.9 blocks, 2.8 assists and 6.3 rebounds a game while shooting 37.2 percent from beyond the arc and 45.5 percent overall.
