Cavaliers center Zydrunas Ilgauskas says that he's sticking with his preseason plan not to opt out of his contract at the end of the season.

He also said that he wants to remain in Cleveland past next season.

"I want to stay here, so I don't see a good reason to opt out," Ilgauskas said. "But I am confident I can play beyond this contract and continue to be a contributor for a few more years."

Ilgauskas is scheduled to make $11.5 million next season, so it makes sense for him to forgo opting out. However, he could opt out and sign a longer contract with the Cavaliers, if they are willing.

"I'm not sure about doing an extension, maybe it is something we'll talk about after the season," Ilgauskas said. "It's hard to guess because you never know when your legs are going to go out. But I'm feeling good."

Why would he opt out of his guaranteed 11 mil?

I would too. Just riding the King's coat tails. having King set you up with easy buckets, and winning 60 games on the back of the King. On top of that 10 million that the King vouched the Cavs FO to give to you. Easy choice for Z.

Slightly lower salary in exchange for more years. The cavs would save money from having to pay less in luxury tax.

He's been there his entire career. Plus he's playing with LeBron. Probably retire there as well.
