First Kawhi Leonard asked out of San Antonio. Now, veteran forward Rudy Gay is reportedly on the way out.
Gay, who signed a two-year, $17 million contract with the Spurs last summer, is declining his 2018-19 player option, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

The 31-year-old Gay was scheduled to make $8.8 million next season. He will now become an unrestricted free agent.
In 57 games with the Spurs this past season, Gay averaged 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists. In five playoff games against the Warriors, Gay improved on those numbers, averaging 12.2 points and 5.6 rebounds.
Prior to signing with San Antonio, Gay spent three and a half seasons with the Kings. His final season with Sacramento was cut short due to a ruptured Achilles.
