Dallas Mavericks forward Dwight Powell will decline his player option for the 2019-20 season to enter unrestricted free-agency this summer, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Had Powell elected to exercise his option, he would have earned $10.2 million next season and become a free agent in 2020.

Powell’s decision will conclude the four-year, $37 million contract the 6-foot-11 forward signed with the Mavs in 2016.

He is expected to have multiple suitors when the free-agent process begins July 1, sources said.
