Free agent forward Rudy Gay has agreed to a two-year, $17.2 million deal with the San Antonio Spurs, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal includes a second-year player option and likely spells the end of a possible return for free agent Jonathon Simmons.

Gay opted out of a potential $14 million deal with the Sacramento Kings in order to have a chance to win with a championship organization, taking a $8.6 million annual salary to play for the Western Conference contender.

The 6-foot-8 forward had grown begrudged of the organization after three years in Sacramento, choosing to opt out and test the free agent waters.

Both parties worked on the deal for close to 72 hours, per Wojnarowski — making this the first aggressive move by the franchise since the signing of free agent Patty Mills in July 1.

Gay offers a versatile package as a long-spanned forward with great scoring instincts attacking the basket and an innate feel for the game.
