San Antonio Spurs forward Rudy Gay, a former standout at Archbishop Spalding, declined a one-year salary of $8.8 million to become a free agent, according to an ESPN report. After spending four seasons with the Sacramento Kings , Gay signed a two-year, $17 million contract last summer with the Spurs that included a player option in 2018. A full-time starter most of his career, Gay, 31, came off the bench for all but six of his 57 games last season, averaging 21.6 minutes a game, the lowest in his 11 NBA seasons., which also includes time with the Memphis Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors . Gay scored 1,588 points in his high school career and was named 2003-04 All-Metro Co-Player of the Year, a McDonald's All American and Jerry Savage Player of the Year. He amassed most of his points — 1,181 — at Spalding, third most in program history. Though he was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Gay is rooted in Baltimore. He hosted a two-day Amateur Athletic Union tournament last August, the Rudy Gay 22 Flight Classic.
