Spurs forward Tim Duncan has a player's option to become a free agent. Duncan endured a pretty disappointing season when the Spurs obtained the top seed but were bounced in the first round. Add an aging roster that Tony Parker publicly said (then recanted) is finished contending, and most All-Stars would test free agency, if for no other reason than to secure the best long-term deal to finish their careers. But Duncan is not such an All-Star. Instead, he will not opt-out and will finish the final year of his contract, according to the San Antonio Express-News. The Spurs also don’t plan to offer him an extension before the collective bargaining agreement expires Thursday. As such, Duncan will play out the final year of his existing deal, during which he is scheduled to earn $21.2 million, and remains on track to become a free agent after the 2011-12 campaign.
