According to a report Friday, the Sacramento Kings hope to bring back Rudy Gay for next season.

The 27-year-old Gay averaged 20.1 points in 55 games with the Kings this season and posted a career-high 18.40 PER in the process, but he can become an unrestricted free agent if he opts out of his contract that is due to pay him $19.3 million next season.

According to Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee, though, the Kings will try to keep him even if Gay opts out.
