As many people expected, Miami Heat star shooting guard Dwyane Wade plans to opt-out of his contract with the Miami Heat and plans to become a free agent. He will be joining his good friends small forward LeBron James and power forward Udonis Haslem, both were teammates of Wade this past season. Heat starting forward/center Chris Bosh is still undecided on whether or not he will join his teammates in free agency as well. However, will all should know in a day or two on what Bosh's plans are, as time is ticking on players being able to opt-out of their contracts.
Many, if not all, expected the Heat's "Big Three," to opt-out of the contracts to re-sign with the team, but taking less money to bring in other talent to continue their dominance not only in the Eastern Conference, but to take back the top position as NBA Champions. Two of the three stars have done so with James and Wade opting-out of their contracts, but this leaves Bosh in an interesting position.
Many expect Wade to be back in the fold for the upcoming season with him being family with the Heat organization. There have been reports on James signing back with the Heat, as he feels as though that is his best option. However, Bosh is a different story. Bosh can opt-out of his contract and sign for less money with the Heat, as some see happening, or many he would take a different approach. He could just stay with the team with the remaining two years on his contract and then become a free agent and sign somewhere else. He can opt-out of his contract, but sign with another team and become their primary option instead of sometimes being the forgotten link of the "Big Three." There are so many layers to the saga that is the Miami Heat.
The free agency period will on get crazier from here on out, especially for the Miami Heat. Will we see the team bring in added pieces or is this the beginning of the end? Or time will team for this team.
