10. Nicolas Batum, F

Nicolas Batum has found new life with Los Angeles Clippers for the past two seasons. The 33-year-old forward is a great 3-and-D role player at this stage of his career. Depending on if the 6-foot-8 veteran wants to win a title or not will impact if he opts in or out of his $3.3 million dollar option for next year.

9. Kendrick Nunn, G

The Los Angeles Lakers needed Kendrick Nunn to play badly for them last season. The 6-foot-2 point guard dealt with injuries all season long, but when the 26-year-old last played for the Miami Heat the season before, he was a solid two-way guard. Considering he’s set to make $5.2 million next season and he didn’t play this season, opting in would be the smart decision for him to make.

8. P.J. Tucker, PF/C

P.J. Tucker was a vital piece to the Miami Heat’s run to the Eastern Conference Finals. The 6-foot-5 forward is still one of the toughest defenders in the NBA despite being 36-years-old. However, due to that age, it might be better for him to opt into his $7.4 million option.

7. Patty Mills, G

The Brooklyn Nets have one of the better 3-and-D guards in the league with Patty Mills on the roster. The 33-year-old had a stellar season with the Nets and was a vital part of their rotation. The 6-foot-1 guard could make more than $6.2 million next year if he wants to, but winning might be more important to him at this point.

6. Bobby Portis, PF/C

It’s time for big man Bobby Portis to get paid. The 6-foot-10 big man has been a vital part of the Bucks for the past two seasons. The 27-year-old is an underrated two-way player and he has only been paid above $5 million in just one of his seven seasons. Portis should opt out and get paid. He’s already won a title, now is time to secure his future financially.
