So reading that post above me, we can do a frontloafef contract? I doubt he'd want that
Zach Lowe is talking about a Kirilenko type opt out situation where Gay would enter free agency market and look for a new deal with the Raptors or with another team.

Of course, he might want an extension with the Raptors during the season. If it's big enough. The Raptors could basically offer him the same 19 mil in the first year and smaller numbers in later years. Nothing wrong with that structure if you are Rudy Gay. Why wouldn't you want more money now?
