Report: David West to decline player option with Spurs
West to become unrestricted free agent after signing with Spurs
SAN ANTONIO – David West will decline his player option with the Spurs and will reevaluate his options this summer, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.
West was set to make $1.5 million during the 2016-17 season, but will now become an unrestricted free agent.
West declined his $12.6 million player option last summer with the Indiana Pacers to sign a discount deal with the Spurs in an effort to win his first championship.
West played in 78 games last season and was a key member of the Spurs bench.
He averaged 7 points and four rebounds per game while shooting 54 percent from the floor.
Yahoo Sports reported West could return to the Spurs and receive a better deal depending on what other moves occur for the Spurs during free agency.
The Spurs now await decisions on Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan. Ginobili has to make a decision whether to opt into his current deal by June 22 and Duncan has until June 29.
