Depending on your belief as to what will happen with the CBA, if you can opt out and get a longer term contract nailed down, I think you should.
Smart move by him and his agent if you ask me.
Impossible - current CBA expires before he can sign another deal, so opting out simply guarantees he won't get the money on his contract next year, and will sign his contract in the first year of the new CBA, instead of the 2nd.
