Jason Maxiell not opting out

Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News:

#Pistons forward Jason Maxiell will not opt-out the final year of his contract, will stay in Detroit for $5 million next season

This isn’t surprising and probably a good move by Maxiell. He definitely wasn’t going to make $5 million next season on the open market, and more likely than not, he can still get a get contract in 2013 that’s similar to the multi-year deal he likely would receive as a free agent this offseason.

It’s a credit to Maxiell, who got into better shape last year, that opting out was even a consideration.
