Jameer Nelson did not mince words when I asked him what will likely be the major factor on whether he comes back as the Orlando Magic's point guard?

"Who doesn't want a long-term deal?" Nelson said. "Everybody wants that security." This is the decision Nelson will likely need to make by the end of business Friday. Does he opt-in for one final year where the Magic pay him the hefty sum of nearly $8 million? Or does he opt-out for a longer deal somewhere else? Or another possibility is that he could opt-out and the Magic could restructure his deal to give him less money next year but more years on his contract.
