Not to anyone's surprise, Golden State Warriors forward Richard Jefferson will exercise his player option for the 2013-14 season and become an unrestricted free agent after the season concludes, his agent Todd Eley of Stratosphere Sports conveyed to CSNNW.com.

“Richard has exercised his option to include the 2013-14 season in his current contract,” Eley said.

Jefferson, 32, will earn $11 million next season by opting into the final year of a four-year, $38 million contract he signed in 2010. If he had declined the option, that would have made him an unrestricted free agent this summer.
