NBA Options, Qualifying Offers Due Before July 2017


All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry will be one of the summer’s top free agents after opting out of his contract with the Toronto Raptors to be an unrestricted free agent in July. On the flip side of that equation, oft-injured role player Josh McRoberts chose to opt into the final year of his deal with the Miami HEAT at $6.0 million.
