I'm with WB chicken dinner on this one. I seriously doubt he opts out. Even if he were totally mercenary (which he isn't), taking a year to rebuild his value makes the most sense. We've noticed that the Hayward we have now isn't the same one we had a couple of months ago. Other teams have surely noticed as well, and most likely have serious questions about the state of that ankle. The Lakers made a long pass the other night, over his head, to a guy he was fronting on defense and I don't think he even left his feet.Based on nothing concrete, my guess is that he doesn't opt-out.
