The Golden State Warriors may sign another player who is almost as old after signing Chris Paul this offseason.
The Warriors are among the clubs anticipated to exhibit interest in veteran scoring forward Rudy Gay, according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype on Friday. Scotto first listed the Warriors, but he also cited other clubs that would be interested in Gay, who was recently released by the Oklahoma City Thunder, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, Chicago Bulls, and New Orleans Pelicans.
The 36-year-old former lottery pick didn’t get much of a chance last season with the Utah Jazz (5.2 points in 14.6 minutes per game), but he has many seasons with at least 20 points per game under his belt and can still be a threat offensively off the bench.
The best fit for Gay might be Golden State. Donte DiVincenzo left the Warriors in free agency, and Jordan Poole was moved away, leaving the squad devoid of many talented second-unit scorers. Gay might be the perfect match for the Warriors, especially if they carry out their anticipated plan for Paul.
