Jameer Nelson Opts Out From Magic, Will Become Free Agent, According To Report

While the Orlando Magic are trying to figure out what to do with All Star center Dwight Howard, the team now has to decide what they're going to do about starting point guard Jameer Nelson. Nelson has decided that he will opt out of his contract, making him an unrestricted free agent.

The belief is that Orlando will re-sign Nelson to a 2-3 year deal, but it's very possible Nelson could break for another team in free agency leaving the Magic wondering what to do with Howard and a hole at the point guard position. The only other point guard under contract for Orlando currently is Chris Duhon.
