Of course it does! Gay's option after this season is a player option, meaning he could choose to opt out if he wants. That's the advantage of player options - it puts the flexibility in their hands.

However, under the current CBA we'd be able to pay Gay more than other teams when offering a max contract. Still, given the current NBA economy and Gay's skillset, unless he improves tremendously this year I don't know how happy we'd be to pay him 15-18 million per year for several more years after this...
