For NBA teams who aren't able to sign someone like Lebron James, Chris Bosh or Dwayne Wade this off-season, Rudy Gay may become the ultimate consolation prize during this summer's free agency period.
Gay is a restricted free agent this summer, which means the Memphis Grizzlies can match any other team's offer in order to retain him.
Many teams covet Gay because he is essentially a watered-down version of Lebron James. Last year, Gay averaged just under 20 points per game to go along with six rebounds per contest.
Gay's player option contract is worth $4.4 million next season, and he should see a significant increase in that number by the end of the summer.
Here are the most likely destinations for Rudy Gay this off-season.
