In the last of a four-part series, Pete D’Alessandro discusses his offseason plans for Rudy (Gay)and Isaiah (Thomas).

How would you characterize your goals with Rudy and Isaiah this summer?

“I would say with Rudy, I’ve been talking to his agent since the day he arrived. We didn’t trade him to have him for a year, so we’re going to continue meeting with Rudy. One of the things we thought when we did the deal (to acquire) Rudy was it gives him a real chance to not just know our front office, but to know our community.

“At the end of the day, this is a business. A decision needs to be made, and there’s a lot involved, but we’ve made no mistake about it with him, and he knows what our intent is with him.”
