Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson is undecided on his player option with the Magic.
One of the potential changes the Orlando Magic could be facing in the 2012 NBA offseason is at the point guard position, as Jameer Nelson is undecided on if he'll exercise his 2011-2012 player option with the team according to a report by Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

If Nelson decides to opt-in with the Magic, he will make $8.6 million for season and be looking at unrestricted free agency for the 2013 offseason. If Nelson decides to opt-out of his contract with the Magic, he can still re-sign with the team with a new long-term deal and would be eligible for a no-trade clause in his contract.
Nelson has until May 15 to make his decision on what to do but seemed to indicate previously that he will opt out of his contract and hit free agency.
