Midway through the season (on the Raptors) Rudy Gay wasn't worth a $9.3 million, but his stock has elevated significantly since joining the Kings.
However, Gay still won't be worth 19.3 mill on the open market, which begs the question whether opting out is actually an option. I can't imagine Gay will command more than $12 mill on the open market.
Will Rudy Gay leave millions on the table to sign elsewhere? My gut tells me no.
