Shams Charania: The Memphis Grizzlies have declined Justise Winslow’s $13 million team option for next season, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium.
More on Justise Winslow Free Agency
An NBA official from another team said he expected Winslow to move into 2019 free agency because of the surplus of expected salary-cap space around the league. The Heat, who are expected to be over the salary cap next summer, have the ability to match any outside offers because they retain Winslow's Bird Rights.
If the Heat and Winslow do not agree on an extension, he would become a restricted free agent next summer, with the Heat having the right to match an outside offer. One opposing NBA general manager said he could see Winslow next summer receiving offers starting at $9 million per year.
