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.
