The Sacramento King’s season couldn’t get any worse as Rudy Gay has torn his Achilles tendon. This is the same injury that practically ended Kobe Bryant’s career.
This is a major blow to his contract chances as he was going to be a free agent, this summer. With the King’s losing, possibly, their second best player, no one knows the direct of the franchise or DeMarcus Cousins:
The Kings just announced they fear Rudy Gay suffered a torn left Achilles tonight. Further examinations are scheduled tomorrow to confirm.

Rudy Gay's torn Achilles will seriously change trade deadline and free agency. He planned to opt-out of $14.2M for 17-18. Complex choice now

Many people see this as the King’s final nail in the coffin for this season as they are already doing sub-par. Will Cousins stick around for another blow?
