An important cog on a (hopefully) rising team turning down 20 mil? That would be something
Or maybe he wants to cash in on one last semi-mega deal before its too late. Alot can happen in one year and although $20 million is alot of money, maybe Jermaine opts out so he can sign one last mid length deal and has some guaranteed funds for another number of years.
