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.
