According to The Vertical, the Pacers were in serious discussions with the Kings for Rudy Gay before they traded for Thaddeus Young.
The Kings' asking price was apparently too high, but The Vertical is reporting that they are still looking to move Gay. The forward has two years left on his deal, but he has a player option for the 2017-18 season. We'll let you know if he's linked to any other teams. Jun 24 - 11:08 AM

Rudy Gay (rest) and Caron Butler (rest) will not be available for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

Rajon Rondo (rest), DeMarcus Cousins (rest), Darren Collison (rest), Marco Belinelli (foot) and Omri Casspi (hamstring) will all be joining Gay and Butler on the sidelines Wednesday night, which should translate to Seth Curry logging massive minutes as a primary option on offense for Sacramento. Avoiding Curry in DFS tonight would not be the wisest decision.
Apr 13 - 1:17 PM

Rudy Gay scored 24 points vs. the Thunder on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, three assists, four steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

He sank a couple free throws to secure the win with a little more than a second left on the clock, giving the Kings a win in their final game at Sleep Train Arena. Sacramento has two more games this season and they're both on the road, so it's possible that Gay could be shut down since the Kings are tanking. To be clear, his owners should wait until we get official confirmation because Gay may have to play since Omri Casspi (hamstring) and Marco Belinelli (foot) are likely done for the season.
Apr 10 - 2:00 AM

Rudy Gay scored 13 points with 13 rebounds, three assists, five steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Wolves on Thursday.

He's coming off rest, but he should be good to go for Saturday in the last game at Sleep Train Arena. After that, Gay might get shut down.
Apr 8 - 12:28 AM

Rudy Gay is back in the starting lineup against the Wolves on Thursday.

He should have a lot of shots going his way with DeMarcus Cousins out. Gay will rest again, but he has a great chance for a nice line tonight.
Apr 7 - 9:29 PM

Rudy Gay and Kosta Koufos will be rested for Tuesday's game against Portland.

DeMarcus Cousins is expected to return from a two-game stint on the sidelines tonight, and with Gay unavailable, Boogie is going to be extremely busy on offense. There should also be more shots to go around for guys like Seth Curry and Darren Collison. James Anderson could also move into the starting five, but he's not an option in most leagues. Owners can expect Gay to return to action Thursday vs. Minnesota.

Rudy Gay led the Kings to a 115-106 win over the Nuggets on Saturday, scoring 25 points on 7-of-18 shooting.

Gay wasn't even supposed to play because coach George Karl wants to rest his studs on back-to-back sets and games on the road, so this was a pleasant surprise for his owners. He added nine boards, three assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes, while shooting 10-of-13 from the line. The Kings have three games next week and they're all at home, so hopefully Gay will be available for all of those since Omri Casspi (hamstring) is out.
Apr 2 - 11:29 PM

Rudy Gay played 40 minutes against the Heat on Friday with 20 points, 13 rebounds, one assist, two steals and four turnovers.

Coach George Karl hinted he would rest his stars on a back-to-back and on the road, so Gay could rest on Saturday. Although, the Kings might not have a choice to play him because Omri Casspi (hamstring) could be out for the season. Hopefully, the Kings will have an update for us in the afternoon. They did update Rondo and said he's not expected to play, so Gay's chances look good in Denver.
Apr 2 - 1:09 AM

Rudy Gay returned after a game off with 15 points, four rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in a win over the Wizards on Wednesday.

He turned in a decent game, but he did not fill the stat sheet without any steals, blocks or treys. Gay should be in the lineup for Friday night at home, but expect him to sit on Saturday in Denver. He will have a big chance to produce with DeMarcus Cousins likely out.
Mar 31 - 12:59 AM

Rudy Gay will start against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He is coming off a rest night and should be ready to go. Gay has not played well, but get him in your lineup. He will likely be rested again.
Mar 30 - 10:06 PM

Rudy Gay (rest) will not play against the Blazers on Monday.

He's the least banged up of the resting trio of Gay, DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo. Gay has not played his best ball these days, so fantasy owners with solid alternatives might want to take the cautious approach. While he's out tonight, Omri Casspi should play a ton while Ben McLemore and James Anderson should get minutes at the three, too.
Mar 28 - 3:01 PM

Rudy Gay made just 4-of-15 shots to finish Wednesday's road loss with 11 points, three assists, two rebounds, one steal and four turnovers in 32 minutes.

Gay's usage rate has fallen below 20 percent over the past month -- he got more opportunities tonight with usage-hoarder DeMarcus Cousins (knee) on the sidelines, but couldn't cash in. He's been a mid-round value this month and his ceiling is even higher, making him a very nice option with four games on the schedule next week.
Mar 23 - 11:53 PM

Rudy Gay dropped 20 points vs. the Lakers on Tuesday, shooting 9-of-16 from the field.

He was going up against Metta World Peace and a Lakers team that has 14 wins on the season, so it's not a shock that Gay posted a nice line. He added eight boards, three assists, one block and three steals in 36 minutes. Gay was coming off one of the worst games of his season with six points against the Jazz on Sunday, so hopefully this will help him get it going as the Kings try to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Mar 16 - 1:52 AM

Rudy Gay admitted that this season with the Kings has been the most difficult of his career.

First DeMarcus Cousins, now Rudy Gay. "I don't think any of us have been a part of something like this," Gay said. "It's tough, it's very tough. I'm not going to sit here and be like I'm happy with how we're playing or what's going on this season, because I'm not." Gay is understandably peeved, and we're certain that there is more frustration in the locker room than what Cousins and Gay have expressed to date.
Mar 14 - 1:23 PM

Rudy Gay finished Sunday's 108-99 loss to the Jazz with just six points on 3-of-9 shooting, to go with four boards, two assists and one turnover in 31 minutes.

Gay is struggling badly. In his past six outings he averaged a mere 13.4 points with 10.0 shot attempts per game. He's racking up enough 3-pointers, rebounds and steals to maintain mid-round value, but will have a hard time climbing much higher while DeMarcus Cousins is dominating touches in the Kings' offense.
