Jameer Nelson Receives Extension On Player Option
Jameer Nelson will have until June 29 to decide whether to opt out of the final year of his contract with the Magic.
Nelson would like to sign a multi-year contract that would guarantee him several more years of security.
"Who doesn't want a long-term deal?" Nelson says. "Everybody wants that security. … I love the Magic organization … but at the end of the day, I have to do what's best for me and my family."
Nelson is owed $7.8 million next season.
