#NBA rumors have All-Star #Rudy Gay signing with the #San Antonio Spurs. This is huge news for the Spurs, as the team had missed out on acquiring players like Chris Paul during the NBA offseason. Now the Spurs have someone to put on the court with LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard next year, with the hopes that the new-look roster can compete with the Golden State Warriors again.

The San Antonio Spurs were pushing hard to sign free agent point guard Chris Paul but missed out on getting him when the LA Clippers traded him to the Houston Rockets.

There had been other players at the point guard position linked to the team as well, so it's possible that a veteran guard could still sign with the team at the league minimum. There are definitely a lot of current NBA rumors about point guards looking for new jobs this offseason.

What does Rudy Gay contract look like for Spurs?

The early reports and NBA rumors state that Rudy Gay's contract is worth roughly $17 million for the next two years. There are also incentives reportedly built into the deal, with the second year being a player option. This appears to be one of those no-risk deals for a former All-Star player who wants to prove he is worth a bigger contract the following offseason. Gay could do that if he helps lead the San Antonio Spurs to another NBA title.

In the ever-improving Western Conference, the San Antonio Spurs were almost forced to land another key contributor with everything else that has taken place this offseason. When the Houston Rockets added Chris Paul to a team that already included James Harden, it was clear they were trying to catch up to the Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors also locked up Kevin Durant and Steph Curry on new deals, showing that franchise isn't going anywhere.

Does Rudy Gay still have 'it' in the NBA?

Playing for the Sacramento Kings, Rudy Gay fell off the radar a bit when it comes to NBA fans. He still managed to put up impressive numbers last season, though, averaging 18.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game.

He typically plays small forward, but can also play the shooting guard position depending on where the Spurs need him. Having him among a trio of LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard should at least guarantee the Spurs score a lot of points next year.

There are still a lot of NBA rumors floating around about the San Antonio Spurs trying to deal LaMarcus Aldridge. That may quiet down now that the Spurs have agreed to a new contract with Rudy Gay, but if the team struggles to begin the 2017-18 NBA season, fans should expect those trade talks to be re-visited. For now, Spurs fans should be very pleased that the team has another weapon to compete with the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.
