Brooklyn Nets backup point guard Shane Larkin owns a player option worth $1.5 million for 2016-17 and he doesn't know yet if he will exercise it, or choose to join the free agent market on July 1.

“I’m not a guy who wants to play a 10-year career with eight different teams," Larkin tells Basketball Insiders. "I want to find a home and really lock in with a team where I know what the coach wants, what my teammates want and we can just all grow together."

Larkin, the No. 18 selection in the 2013 NBA draft, will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, if he declines the option. Larkin doesn't have a high market value around the NBA and for that reason he will probably opt in to guarantee the $1.5 million for next season.

Larkin played in 78 games this season, starting 17, and he averaged 7.3 points, 4.4 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals.

Besides Larkin, teammates Wayne Ellington and Thomas Robinson also own player options for next season.
