Teams around the NBA have been very busy over the past few weeks, looking for ways to improve their rosters. We've already seen some blockbuster trades and signings, and the latest one is Gordon Hayward's departure from Utah to the Boston Celtics. It seems like the Western Conference teams, in particular, are getting better while the teams from the East apparently can't get the job done.

The San Antonio Spurs are also a team that looks for improvements this summer, as they want to compete for the title again next season. Last season they were swept in the Western Conference Finals by the Warriors, and this offseason they want to narrow the gap between themselves and Golden State.

Gay headed to Texas

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Friday that the San Antonio Spurs acquired Rudy Gay. Gay was a free-agent this summer after playing for the Sacramento Kings last season. Reportedly, Gay signed a two-year, $17 million deal with the Spurs and he will have a player option for the second year of the contract.

Several other teams were also interested in acquiring Gay this summer, in particular the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Utah Jazz. He ended up in San Antonio after all, as he apparently wants to compete for the NBA title at this point of his career.

Gay is a 11-year NBA veteran, and he spent the last three seasons of his career playing for the Sacramento Kings.

He played just 30 games last season due to his season-ending Achilles injury, but he averaged 18.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per game last season.

Gay is a 6-foot-8 small forward who will be valuable for the Spurs in many ways. He is a solid rebounder, and he showed last year that he can make three-pointers as well.

He shot 37% from behind the arc last season. Kawhi Leonard and Rudy Gay will be an interesting duo to watch next season in the NBA.

Vince Carter teaming up with Zach Randolph again

Earlier this week the Sacramento Kings announced that they have acquired Zach Randolph and George Hill via free-agency.

On Friday, ESPN reported that another NBA veteran is headed to the Kings. Vince Carter will be the oldest player in the NBA next season at 40 years old, as he signed a one-year, $8 million contract with the Sacramento Kings.

Carter will re-unite with his former Memphis Grizzlies teammate Zach Randolph, as the two of them played together in Memphis for the past three seasons. Last season with the Grizzlies, Carter averaged 8.0 points and 3.1 rebounds per game while shooting 38% from the three-point line. The 2017/2018 season will be the 20th season in Carter's illustrious NBA career.
