Chris Bosh tells Heat he opts out

Mon., June 30, 2014, midnight

LeBron James went first. Dwyane Wade followed a few days later. And now Chris Bosh has made it a clean sweep. The Big 3, for now anyway, are free. And general manager Pat Riley will soon have the chance to make the Miami Heat even better. Bosh told the Heat on Sunday that he, like James and Wade, will be exercising the early termination option in his contract and forgoing the final two years on his Miami deal – making him a free agent. The move was not unexpected, and gives the Heat a gigantic amount of financial flexibility to shop with when the free-agent window officially opens at midnight Tuesday. The thinking seems to be that in order for the Heat to get better, the players knew they needed to give the team financial room to work. – Associated Press
