There’s no need for Emeka Okafor to think about it over the summer. He will be back with the Wizards for the 2013-14 season, he told CSN Washington.
Okafor is due to make $14.48 million and has a player-option on whether to terminate it and become a free agent. That he will stay seems like a no-brainer, unless he wants to latch on to a championship contender and take a steep paycut. It won’t become official until the signing period opens July 1. Okafor makes $13.49 million this season.
“My plan is to be here next year,” Okafor said Sunday after contributing 19 points and 10 rebounds in a 109-92 win vs. the Toronto Raptors. “My mind-set is to be here next year. I just think that this team has a lot of potential. If we had everybody healthy, it would be a different around here. We’d be playing for (playoff) position.”
