The line of Dallas Mavericks' players opting out of their contracts appears to continue. Point guard Deron Williams has notified the team he will opt out of the final year of his deal, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. He joins Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons, who reportedly have done the same.

While franchise legend Nowitzki is expected to re-sign in Dallas, Parsons and Williams aren't close to sure bets. Williams, like Parsons, has been limited by injuries over the last few years.

Opting out of $5.6 million next season carries some risk for the soon-to-be 32-year-old, but he will likely cash in somewhere thanks to the rising salary cap. Williams took a buyout from the Brooklyn Nets worth a reported $28 million last year before signing with his hometown Mavs.

Williams averaged 14.1 points and 5.8 assists per game last season.
