The Sacramento Kings are going to have some big decisions to make in the offseason.

Two players that averaged over 20 points per game can become free agents in July.

Forward Rudy Gay has a player option worth $19.3 million while point guard Isaiah Thomas will be a restricted free agent.

Kings’ general manager Pete D’Alessandro let it be known the team wants to keep Gay and he touched on Thomas’ situation as well.

“With Isaiah, he’s had an incredible year,” D’Alessandro told Katie Cracchiolo of Kings.com. “He’ll be facing restricted free agency this offseason, and he’s just been so good this year. The way he is with our fans and with his teammates, we just think the world of him.

“Again, this is a business decision that these men have to make in this League, and we’re going to engage Isaiah’s agents as well. We look forward to making this team better.”

Last season, Thomas, the 60th overall pick in the second round of the 2011 NBA Draft was fantastic, putting up 20.3 points, 6.3 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game.

Being that he is a restricted free agent, the Kings can match any offer sheet Thomas signs.
