by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Center Al Jefferson had the opportunity to opt out of his contract with the Hornets, but he told the Charlotte Observer that he has "unfinished business" with the team. 

Jefferson averaged 16.6 points and 8.4 rebounds, numbers way down from the 2013-14 campaign, when he carried the then-Bobcats to the playoffs after averaging 21.8 points and 10.8 rebounds. 

"I've got unfinished business here. That's not even an option for me," Jefferson said. "Unless something dramatic changed, I can't see myself opting out, and leaving that bad taste in my mouth. And in the Charlotte Hornets' mouth. I can't walk away from that."

Hornets forward Al Jefferson: I need to redeem myself
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

After missing 17 games due to a knee issue, Hornets forward Al Jefferson said Thursday he needs to regain his health in order to return to being a dominant player.

"I still have a lot of great basketball in me, I just need rehabilitation," Jefferson said, per the team. "I just need to redeem myself."

To help lessen the wear and tear on his knees, Jefferson said he would like to lose 25 pounds, per The Charlotte Observer. He added that he doesn't expect to use his opt-out option this summer.

Hornets coach Steve Clifford agreed that Jefferson's health affected his playing ability this season.

"As a head coach, I'm responsible for individual players' years," Clifford said. "There's only five guys out there and a lot of [Jefferson's] issues were physical."

Despite the knee issues, Clifford said he has no concerns that Jefferson will continue to be plagued by injuries.

"I believe in him," Clifford said.
