Joffrey Lauvergne of the San Antonio Spurs is considering declining his player option for the 2018-19 season, according to a report.
The San Antonio Express News reports the French big man is expected to not pick up his option, one which would pay him $1.6 million next season. Jabari Young writes:
On the Joffrey Lauvergne front, the belief is he will not opt into his $1.6 million player option, while more lucrative offers he’ll consider to play overseas.
Lauvergne, who averaged 4.1 points and 3.1 rebounds a game for the Spurs last season, is said to be pursuing more lucrative offers and could also decide to return to Europe if an interesting offer comes.
