After seven months of shoulder rehabilitation, Memphis Grizzlies forward and Baltimore native Rudy Gay is set to return to the court this Sunday, Oct. 9, when the D.C.-based Goodman League takes on the Los Angeles-based Drew League, reports Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Gay has signed on to join a Goodman squad which includes Washington Wizards cornerstone John Wall, two-time scoring champion Kevin Durant, Michael Beasley, DeMarcus Cousins, Donte Greene, and Grizzlies teammate Sam Young.
Goodman defeated Drew, 135-134, in an August contest--which Gay attended--at D.C.'s Trinity University. The rematch, this time located at Long Beach State University, promises to be exciting.
Marcus Banks, DeMar DeRozan, James Harden, Ryan Hollins, Brandon Jennings, Craig Smith, Derrick Williams, Dorell Wright, and Wizards guard Nick Young represent Drew League. That pits two pairs of teammates against one another: in addition to Wall and Young, the Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant and Harden will do battle.
According to Lee, the Goodman trio of Durant, Gay, and Wall will play a different exhibition in South Beach, FL the day before their rematch with Drew.
