Rudy Gay (Achilles) plans to opt out of his contract in order to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, according to his agent Roger Montgomery.

Gay was having a productive season before he suffered a complete tear of his Achilles tendon in January 18th. But Gay says his recovery is ahead of schedule and he expects to be back to full strength come training camp.

Some questioned whether or not the latest injury would tilt the scales in favor of opting in and returning to the Kings to rebuild his market value.

The Kings now face the prospect of losing Gay and point guard Darren Collison, the team's third-leading scorer on the season, as free agents this summer. He was promptly traded to the Memphis Grizzlies, where he played the first six-and-a-half years of his career before being dealt to the Toronto Raptors midway through the 2012-13 campaign.

Gay, 30, was averaging 18.7 points when he was injured, second on the Kings to DeMarcus Cousins.

The 30-year-old Gay, who signed a three-year contract extension worth $40 million with the Kings in November 2014, was scheduled to make $14.2 million next season.
