Default Multiple Heat stars are opting out, entering free agency

Team president Pat Riley was informed that Udonis Haslem and Dwyane Wade decided to exercise the early termination option in their contracts, according to agent Henry Thomas, and the moves put into motion a plan that could retool the Heat’s roster for another run at an NBA championship. The ultimate goal, of course, is to keep LeBron James in Miami and then add some new talent around him, Wade and Chris Bosh.

“Today we were notified of Dwyane’s intention to opt out of his contract and Udonis’ intention to not opt into his contract, making both players free agents,” Riley said in a statement. “Dwyane has been the cornerstone of our organization for over a decade, and we hope he remains a part of the Heat family for life. "

Wade told the Heat on Saturday that he is opting out of the final two years and nearly $42 million in his contract, and will become a free agent on Tuesday — the same decision that LeBron James revealed earlier in the week.

Also Saturday, Udonis Haslem told the Heat that he will not pick up his $4.6 million option for next season. But Bosh is still weighing his options, agent Henry Thomas told The Associated Press, after a miscommunication earlier in the day suggested that the forward was already sold on the idea of opting out.

"Chris has not decided yet," Thomas told AP early Saturday evening

Chris Bosh's agent informed Miami Heat President Pat Riley that Bosh will exercise his contract's early termination option and become a free agent July 1.

Henry Thomas, Bosh's agent, told Riley on Sunday afternoon, one day after Thomas told Riley that two of his other clients, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem, also will become a free agents this summer.

"Today we were notified of Chris' intentions to opt-out of his contract," Riley said in a news release. "Chris is one of the most versatile and dynamic big men in this league, and he has been an instrumental key to our championship success over the last four seasons. We look forward to meeting with Chris and his agent in the coming days to discuss keeping him in Miami for many years to come."
