No real surprise here, as the Nuggets’ big man will reportedly test his worth on the open market. From the Denver Post: “Nene will opt out of the final year of his contract worth nearly $12 million and, as a result, become an unrestricted free agent, a source familiar with the situation said Wednesday night. It means Nene can sign with any team he wishes without the Nuggets getting a chance to match the offer when free agency begins after the expected NBA lockout, which likely will start Friday. Nene had until today to make a final decision. The Nuggets tried to sign him to a contract extension before today, the last day of the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement, but to no avail. Instead, Nene figures to have many suitors — including the Nuggets — as he explores his options. Nene opted out of the final year of the six-year, $60 million contract that he signed in 2006.”
