Gay, who'll turn 33 next month, is one of two players in the NBA — with LeBron James — who has at least 15,000 points, 5,000 rebounds, 1,000 steals and 500 blocks since he was drafted in 2006. The 13-year veteran appeared in 69 games last season for the Spurs and averaged 13.7 points with a career-high 6.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 26.7 minutes while shooting a career-best .504 (376-for-746) from the floor and a career-best .402 (74-184) from 3-point range.

The new contract marks the third time the unrestricted free agent has signed with the Spurs after originally joining San Antonio on July 2017 and re-signing last year on a reported one-year, USD 10 million deal.

 

In 126 total games over two seasons with the Spurs, Gay has averaged 12.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 24.4 minutes while shooting .490 from the floor and .368 from beyond the arc. He holds career averages of 17.6 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.26 steals in 34.0 minutes.

Gay was drafted by the Rockets in the first round (eighth overall) in 2016 but was traded to the Grizzlies before his rookie season. He played for the Grizzlies, Raptors and Kings before first signing with the Spurs.
