More players have decided what they want to do with their future ahead of the coming NBA season.
Some of them decided to opt into their player options and stay one more year with their franchises. On the other hand, some are seeking new challenges or looking for opportunities to either win championships or get ore playing time.
Amongst the ballers' who decided to decline their player options were Rodney Hood from the Trail-Blazers and James Ennis from the Orlando Magic, and will both become free agents, respectively.
Hood suffered an achilles injury early last season and he's expected to be fully-recovered for the coming season. Hood, who re-signed with the Blazers in July 2019 after a stellar run to the Western Conference finals two seasons ago, averaged 11.5 points while shooting 49.3 percent from 3-point range prior to the injury.
