Casper Ware has opted out of his NBL deal with the Sydney Kings.
Ware was the highest paid import in the NBL this past season, but would have seen his 20-21 salary cut by 50 percent due to COVID-19 measures.
The new agreement allowed players to opt out of their respective contracts before a May 4 deadline.
Ware began his NBL career with Melbourne United in 2016.
