NBA: Orlando Magic at Charlotte Hornets Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Two former Portland Trail Blazers players have made decisions on their respective player options, as we head into Wednesday’s NBA draft. Nicolas Batum has decided to remain in his $27.1 million contract with the Charlotte Hornets, while Wesley Matthews has decided to decline his $2.7 million option.

If Matthews leaves the Milwaukee Bucks, rumors suggest he will be courted by the Los Angeles Lakers.

Meanwhile, Orlando Magic wing Evan Fournier has exercised his $17 million option.

Otto Porter Jr., who was last year hobbled by injury, will pick up his $28.4 million option to remain with the Chicago Bulls.
