CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Charlotte Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace will become an unrestricted free agent Sunday after deciding not to extend his contract for another season.
Wallace's agent, Rob Pelinka, said Tuesday that Wallace - who led Charlotte in scoring last season at 18.1 points a game - will explore all options. Wallace, who made just over $5.5 million last season, will likely command at least $10 million a season under a new contract that could run as long as six years.
Vice president of basketball operations Bernie Bickerstaff is expected to fly to Los Angeles to meet with Pelinka shortly after the negotiation period begins Sunday. New general manager Rod Higgins will also be involved in trying to lock up Wallace.
``Rod and Bernie have indicated to me and Gerald that re-signing him is a top priority for their franchise,'' Pelinka said. ``Starting at midnight on July 1, Gerald and I will start evaluating his options and ultimately make a thoughtful decision on what his future will be.''
