West has a June 30th deadline to let the organization know whether he will return on his $7.5 million salary or test the free agent waters.
Throughout this year, the team had thought that West would not return this upcoming season, despite spending his entire career with the Hornets.
The former All-Star was forced to undergo surgery earlier this year to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee that he suffered in a game on March 24th.
West believes that he can still perform at a high level and he is expected to be one of the top free agents on the market if he does in fact decide to opt out of his contract.
There are many teams in need of a power forward and with West arguably being the best one on the market, he should garner a lot of attention. Any deal that West signs will likely be over the $7.5 million he was due to receive on the last year of his deal.
So here's a sneak peek at 10 team that could use West's services.
