Houston Rockets forward Thabo Sefolosha is opting out of the NBA’s restart in Florida, according to ESPN‘s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Sefolosha, 36, was averaging 2.2 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.6 assists on 40.7 shooting from the field in limited minutes before the league hit pause on the 2019-20 season amid the novel coronavirus pandemic on March 11.

Last week, the league finalized its plan to resume the 2019-20 campaign at the Disney campus near Orlando, Fla., on July 30 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.

The 13-year vet, who was known for being a defensive stopper at his peak, has also had stops in Utah, Atlanta, Chicago and Oklahoma City.
