This should come as no surprise, but Bobcats/now-Hornets power forward Josh McRoberts reportedly has opted out of his contract for next season at $2.7 million and will become a free agent this summer.

McRoberts had a stellar season for the stealthily decent and tough Bobcats, averaging 8.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game for the Cats and shooting 44 percent from the field and 36 percent from three. He was a willing passer, a tough defender, ran the floor, and made plays. The Hornets have indicated they'd like to keep him, but it remains to be seen if they'll be able to afford him or ward off offers from contenders.
In short, he's about to get paid.
