Arron Afflalo Anticipates Opting Out Of Contract Next Offseason
Arron Afflalo has a player option for the 2015-16 season and anticipates declining it to become a free agent.
Afflalo was traded to the Denver Nuggets, returning to his old team.
"It's probably something that I always anticipated, even beyond when I first signed this deal with Denver," Afflalo said. "I knew my game, I knew my maturity, I knew I would grow as a player. And I wanted to have that option as I got older and I progressed as a player. So hopefully I'll out-perform my contract and put myself in a better situation. That was my intent from the beginning, even before this year, was to play out the four years and progress as a player."
Afflalo's name has also popped up in talks regarding Kevin Love.
"That's part of the business," Afflalo said. "If that happens, you remain professional and you move on. But I operate under what is, not what if and as of right now I feel like a Nugget again. If things change, they change. So, my mindset is simply shifted to what is.
