Gay only played in 30 games for the Kings last season after he tore his Achilles tendon.
Even though he could have exercised his player's option that was worth $14.2m, Gay reportedly wanted to play for a franchise that was in NBA title contention.
Since the Spurs have reached the NBA playoffs each season for the past 20 years, the 30-year-old Gay will be more likely to have that chance.
