Phoenix Suns center Drew Eubanks has decided to decline his $2.6 million player option for next season, opting to explore free agency instead, according to NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Eubanks’ decision to decline the player option indicates his desire to assess his market value and potentially secure a more lucrative contract in free agency.

Eubanks, who signed a one-plus-one deal with the Suns, averaged 5.1 points and 4.3 rebounds across 75 games this past season.
