It's quite clear to me that he didn't opt out only because he wanted the money he'd be paid this season. No team was gonna give him a contract at the same rate...or so he thought..
He didn't opt out because he thought the Kings would give him a new deal. It wasn't about the money he would get this season. Once he found out Sac didn't want him back, it was too late to opt out and find deals. He saw what Diddy, Brand, Corey, etc were getting, and thought he could have gotten a good deal in FA, so he said he made a huge mistake.
