The San Antonio Spurs are weighing their options before the trade deadline, as they could be working to move veterans Rudy Gay, Marco Belinelli and DeMarre Carroll.
Spurs stars DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge will more than likely stay put, considering the team’s goal is to make the playoffs for an NBA record 22 consecutive seasons.
Therefore, it would be more realistic for the Spurs to look to move Gay for future draft picks.
However, an anonymous NBA executive believes the asking price is too high for Gay, according to Jabari Young of CNBC Sports.
“If they get a nice asset back, I think they would do something with Rudy Gay, but I think their asking price is too high,” the league executive told Young.
Belinelli on the other hand, who is on an expiring $5.85 million contract, does not have any serious suitors yet, as he is considered a defensive liability.
The Spurs are working with Carroll’s agent to try and find him a new team, as he has only appeared in 15 games this season.
The 33-year-old signed a three-year deal with the Spurs last summer and if traded to a new team, he could prove to be a versatile defensive forward who can knock down three-pointers.
