Indiana Pacers point guard Cory Joseph will exercise the player option on his contract, according to ESPN.
Joseph’s contract will pay him just more than $7.9 million in 2018-19. He will become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
Joseph, 26, played all 82 games and spent most of the season as the steadying backup for starter Darren Collision.
In 27 minutes per game, Joseph averaged 7.9 points and 3.2 assists. He started 17 games.
Following Joseph’s decision, forward Thaddeus Young becomes the only member of the Pacers who can opt out of his contract and become a free agent this summer.
