He gets to decide after the year is up, so it depends. If he has a down year, he'll almost certainly exercise his player option and stay to raise his value for the year after. If he has even a decent season, I'd expect him to opt out and try for a 4 or 5 year deal for the security. Lose-lose for the Raps, as they either end up in a bidding war for his services (wherein they overpay him or lose him for nothing) or they are stuck with him for another year at 19 M coming off a year where he has hurt his trade value.
