Despite a strong mutual interest, free-agent forward Rudy Gay left his meeting in Oklahoma City without a contract with the Thunder.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported the sides are still searching for a “financial path” to make a deal. Darren Wolfson of 5 Eyewitness News noted the Thunder could have competition for Gay from the Minnesota Timberwolves, who view him as a potential stretch 4 next to Karl-Anthony Towns.
The Timberwolves’ financial books are clear enough that they should be able to sign Gay outright, even after agreeing to terms with Jeff Teague. The Thunder are capped out and would likely need a sign-and-trade with the Sacramento Kings to make a contract work.
