Report: LeBron’s agent has informed Heat he will opt out, become an unrestricted free agent

Jun 24, 2014, 9:54 AM EDT

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all have early termination options which they can exercise this summer in order to become unrestricted free agents, instead of playing out the final two years on those deals.

The first domino has fallen, as James has reportedly made the first of two very important decisions.

It’s important to state the obvious, which is that LeBron opting out has absolutely zero to do with whether or not he returns to the Heat. The move was expected, just as it was with Carmelo Anthony, because the league’s biggest stars in their prime are always going to opt out of a deal to sign a much longer one for more guaranteed money the moment the opportunity presents itself.

[Dan Patrick Show: Is LeBron taking shot at Pat Riley by opting out?]

But it’s extremely interesting nonetheless, because it means that there’s at least a possibility that James will choose to play somewhere else.

The more likely scenario is that James re-ups in Miami for another five-year max contract, with another early termination option after three years.

Remember, the Heat didn’t exactly struggle to make the playoffs — they just finished a campaign that ended with a trip to the Finals for a fourth straight year. While it’s clear the roster needs upgrades to win a title, and LeBron’s move certainly puts at least some pressure on ownership to make that happen, Miami is still very close. And organizational stability — especially with Pat Riley in the front office and Erik Spoelstra on the sidelines — is going to be as important a factor as any in LeBron’s next decision.

Wade and Bosh have yet to inform the team of whether or not they too will opt out, but it’s more than likely that they will. Wade may be convinced to sign for more money in total over more years in order to give the team some immediate financial flexibility, and the same may be true of Bosh and even of James.

The three will look at the landscape together, however, before anyone decides to leave. And while James opting out first is definitely intriguing, the move was one that was expected.

    He can’t continue to leave teams it will not look right on his legacy, to be honest now that he’s applying pressure to management, Riley would definitely step up, all we really need is size and high iq competent role players, and possibly another veteran scorer to replace Dwade’s production while he’s on our maintenance program in order to get him right for the playoffs. That which means let Chalmers walk, all through this past season we were to focused in the paint due to lack of size and leaving shooters wide open that showed in the Finals we looked confused and lost in rotations. So sign free agent Mo Williams as are starting pg, draft Shabazz this year which would add another spread shooter who has confident and control unlike what Chalmers and Cole provided in the playoffs, also convince the best three pointer shooter ever to resign and strengthen bench, sign Richard Jefferson to mid-level who just came off a great shooting season 40% from three, Rashad stays, also resign Birdman thats the most energy and size coming off the bench, last issue must address adding and trading for a devensive center presence in the paint which was always the problem. Gortat’s a free agent, even Asik would be a upgrade difference protecting that paint and trust me Lebron is known for raising confidence and making a player look better then they really is (Gooden, Varejao) so I think he does resign once we add the attractive pieces you will see a whole different roster next year and another trip to the Finals.

      Jibberish.

    • bougin89 - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:06 AM

      Just upgrade every single position. The big three all re-sign. Upgrade the entire bench.

      OK, got it…

      • mazblast - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:23 AM

        And all for no money so they don’t bust the salary cap! Genius!

      • brookwell2013 - Jun 24, 2014 at 12:39 PM

        I got it too, bougin..Yup, hmmm…let’s see…..um….uh….I come up with a payroll of $135 million plus luxury taxes…yeah, OK…let’s do that….chessh

    • vikingferd - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:36 AM

      Dude, it would be different if he left for more money. The fact is he would leave for LESS money in search of a team that could win a championship sooner rather than later. Get a grip (as Riley said). His legacy will do fine. How AWESOME would it be if he were to lead 2 or possibly 3 different teams to an NBA championship?? That would DEFINE him as the greatest NBA Player ever because no one will have ever done that.

      • thesportsjudge - Jun 24, 2014 at 12:16 PM

        Greatest? Why, because his greed lead him to different places? No way. There used to be something called loyalty. Tim Duncan has it. Does your boy? Nope. Not a drop.

      • packergator - Jun 24, 2014 at 1:29 PM

        sportsjudge – Loyalty? Are you kidding? At a time in which any player can get cut from his team at the pro level, there’s not exactly a two-way street going there.

        Tim Duncan has had the good fortune to be part of a stable organization with a HoF coach for many years, which has allowed him to be surrounded by good/great players and consistently have a shot at titles. There’s no way to know what Tim would have done if he’d been picked by a less stable team out of college. Saying that he’s loyal and Lebron isn’t because Tim never left the Spurs and Lebron did leave the Cavs doesn’t make a lot of sense though.

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 25, 2014 at 12:24 AM

        Loyalty is a TWO way street…

        LBJ stayed longer than he had to…

        Gilbert took a dump on LBJ…

        Now the Spurs team, organization did what they were supposed to do and Timmy did what he was supposed to do.

        Had Timmy played for Dumb Gilbert, Timmy may very well have left too…

        Context buddy… you’re NOT comparing apples to apples when you mention the Cavs and compare them to the Spurs…

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 25, 2014 at 12:27 AM

        when loyalty only goes ONE way… the person giving and being loyal gets taken advantage of…

        the other side sees a sucker and continues to line their pockets at the expense of the sucker…

        I bet that Timmy, under those circumstances, owner doing NOTHING to win, would have behaved differently than he did while playing for the Spurs…

        none of us like when we are loyal to a person or business and we KNOW that the other person is NOT loyal to us…

        just gotta be real with all you say

    • heat256 - Jun 24, 2014 at 1:17 PM

      I could swear your entire statement was just a jumbled, run-on sentence. That’s how I’m treating it.

  2. honkerdawg - Jun 24, 2014 at 10:40 AM

    Nothing is ever good enough for him. Hope he signs somewhere else then he’ll NEVER win another ring.

    • sprint32 - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:18 AM

      Players opt our of contracst all the time to get better deals, you dont know what he believes is good enough. You sound dumb.

      • johninpa - Jun 24, 2014 at 12:42 PM

        People that can’t spell don’t and contracts properly shouldn’t call other people dumb.

    • packergator - Jun 24, 2014 at 1:34 PM

      What are you talking about? The current roster just got thrashed in the Finals; wouldn’t you want to have the roster upgraded to improve your team’s future title chances? The Heat need to loosen the purse-strings a bit here and if Lebron has to put on the pressure to make that happen, why not?

      He’s not leaving Miami, I promise.

      • fpstratton - Jun 24, 2014 at 5:06 PM

        Agreed. LeBron will stay in Miami. He’s not stupid, and seems to care whether or not people like him. A move to another team will further alienate those who dislike him and, more importantly, turn those who started warming up to him against him. Miami needs to retool, but this is, with LeBron, still a threat to win a title. San Antonio can’t keep playing as well as they did in the finals forever….they were unbelievably good!

  3. csbanter - Jun 24, 2014 at 10:41 AM

    What would become of the Heat if Lebron leaves ? Would Chris Bosh want to stay, highly unlikely. Would D.Wade be upset absolutely ? Would Heat fans turn on Lebron, absolutely. How soon would Riley hand in his resignation ?

    Armageddon as seen by a non Heat fan.

    • heat256 - Jun 24, 2014 at 10:49 AM

      If all 3 opt out and leave, then they will actually have tons of cap space. They will field a much different team, but one that no doubt can be competitive in the East. Heat fans will probably turn on him as fast as the team James signs with will proclaim him their Lord and Savior after 4 years of mocking him, thus becoming the new “bandwagon” fans everyone calls MIA fans.

    • mazblast - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:24 AM

      I don’t think it matters whether Dyane Wade is upset or not. He’s a shell of his former self–age, knees, no D. Stern to protect him and his pals.

    • florida727 - Jun 24, 2014 at 12:34 PM

      You mean -wayne Wa-e? There’s no “D” in his name. Not anymore.

      • heat256 - Jun 24, 2014 at 1:10 PM

        I hear there’s a lot of “D” in your mom.

      • courtjester1234 - Jun 24, 2014 at 4:50 PM

        Heat256, Drum roll and cymbal crash!!!

    • antistratfordian - Jun 24, 2014 at 2:39 PM

      Temporary armageddon even if all three left, as heat256 said. Miami will always be in the mix because the location is a major draw. It’s a place where players live in the offseason. It’s a place that a lot of people select as home over all other locations in the country. You couldn’t choose a better place to set up shop if you’re a man with money – single or not.

      And the Heat’s ownership and management is par excellence.

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 25, 2014 at 12:29 AM

        Lebron isn’t too happy with the Heats ownership at the moment…

      • antistratfordian - Jun 25, 2014 at 4:14 AM

        Owners need motivation just like players.

  4. southbeachtalent - Jun 24, 2014 at 10:49 AM

    still don’t understand the fascination with LeBrick, why does any one want this guy on their team? So he can flop and stuff? So confused..

    • 88heatnation - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:11 AM

      So have you ever seens him guard all five positions, have you ever see this man workout regimen all the hard work he put in, have you see him carry his team on a nightly bases commited to getting to the rim or freeze the defense with off balance jumpers, have you seen this man size and amount if speed he possesses, have you seen this lineman play the point? Really the point? then get hot and converts to a shooting guard and then convert to a PF deep in the post and rebounds, have you seen the Finals last year or the year before that, have you seen basketball, do you know what the NBA is?

      • southbeachtalent - Jun 24, 2014 at 2:23 PM

        disappointed….

        “have you seen basketball, do you know what the NBA is?”

        yes, and you’re a dummy.

        sarcasm buddy, sarcasm…

    • sprint32 - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:19 AM

      Maybe its because he is the best player on the planet. Now you shouldnt be confused idiot!

      • southbeachtalent - Jun 24, 2014 at 2:24 PM

        really? hmmm..

    • sportsfan18 - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:29 AM

      LeBrick?

      I’m kinda known on here for NOT like Kobe, Melo or Lebron…

      But, I still admit facts and things when they are true.

      It’s Kobe and MeBrick that can’t shoot and brick shots.

      Lebron can shoot. To wit

      ONLY LBJ’s rookie season did he shoot below 47% from the field. He’s been above 47% now for 10 straight seasons.

      Why am I picking that number? Because KOBE has NEVER had even ONE season where he has shot a true 47% from the field. A few times it rounded to 47% but it wasn’t 47%.

      Oh, and LeBrick as you called him as shot OVER 50% for the past 5 consecutive seasons. He’s shot OVER 56% for the past two seasons.

      Oh, and LeBrick has INCREASED his field goal percentage for the past 7 CONSECUTIVE seasons…

      Oh, let’s not discuss MeBrick as he’s not even as good as Kobe is in shooting and Kobe can’t hold a candle to Lebron shooting-wise.

      Kobe is like 139th all time in true shooting efficiency.

      MeBrick moved UP this past season to 194th place all time on this list after beginning this season OUTSIDE of the top 200…

      Oh, and Lebron is currently in 48th place and he has been climbing for many years in a row and will continue climbing…

      Lastly, MJ is the GOAT

      • bougin89 - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:38 AM

        You need to turn your sarcasm detector on.

      • southbeachtalent - Jun 24, 2014 at 2:28 PM

        He throws up bricks, flops, disappears in big games, has a reseeding hairline and is not a good tipper.

    • antistratfordian - Jun 24, 2014 at 2:42 PM

      Well some Hall of Famers – like Jim Boeheim, Oscar Robertson, Scottie Pippen and Clyde Drexler – think he might be the greatest basketball player to ever live. Maybe that has something to do with it.

      • southbeachtalent - Jun 24, 2014 at 2:57 PM

      • southbeachtalent - Jun 24, 2014 at 2:59 PM

        it’s glorious! I have friends with zero perspective and they are going nuts! I will troll them until he signs somewhere.

  6. miamatt - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:01 AM

    This has been the expected move all along, and it is all about leverage.

    LeBron James is now the ultimate power in the universe.

    • mazblast - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:25 AM

      And the O’Brien Trophy is still in San Antonio.

        Oh yeah… everyone forgot about that.

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 25, 2014 at 12:35 AM

        Lebron didn’t forget that it’s in San Antonio…

    • antistratfordian - Jun 24, 2014 at 1:44 PM

      I instinctively read that in Admiral Motti’s voice.

  7. fenway9999 - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:03 AM

    I am not a Miami fan at all and actually can’t stand them as a team, but how can anyone have a negative thing to say about LeBron? He is the best player on the planet and makes ANY team an instant contender for the title. I for one hope he leaves Miami so I can really hate that team!!!!

    • antistratfordian - Jun 24, 2014 at 1:46 PM

      The exultation from these haters is only about the fear they have of the Big 3 all opting out and taking less money. They are rooting for selfishness.

      • sportsfan18 - Jun 25, 2014 at 12:39 AM

        Anti

        I HOPE that D Wade, Bosh and LBJ all resign for several more years as they are no longer good enough to win over the best from the West.

        D Wade’s had a great career. Sad when injuries rob players, but due to his knees, he’s aging in dog years.

        He cares, tries, wants to be the way he used to be… but life is tough that way.

        As the months and years go by, it won’t be pretty for him…

        This isn’t 2010 anymore…

        It’s the Big One, the soft #2 and the 7th man… not the Big 3…

      • antistratfordian - Jun 25, 2014 at 4:19 AM

        We’ll find out if they’re no longer good enough to win over the best of the West in the Finals next year when they play (probably) OKC. I think the Heat would win against them even if they brought back the exact same team.

        Or SAS better hope for another OKC injury. But I’m not sure that San Antonio is going to be as motivated – that has been the tendency of their Big 3 after winning. They’ll try, of course, but it’s just different – the edge isn’t there anymore.

    Time for Cheat fans to start sweating.

    • sprint32 - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:20 AM

      If Heat are cheats so are Celtics, Lakers, Bulls, and any other team that signs free agents

    • packergator - Jun 24, 2014 at 1:38 PM

      Huh? What does cheating have to do with anything? How have the Heat cheated? Is anyone accusing them?

      • metitometin - Jun 24, 2014 at 3:05 PM

        Not so much cheating but LeBron and Bosh pretty much forced themselves onto the Heat. It was completely illegal. I thought David Stern was going to put a stop to this crap but I guess he loves the super teams that everyone loves to hate.

  9. cantonbound13 - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:20 AM

    Riley is pissed!

    • sprint32 - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:23 AM

      Riley is far from pissed. They all knew he was goingto opt out. Him opting out doesnt mean he is leaving. They reported on this last week.

    • mazblast - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:26 AM

      Nah, he never gets pissed unless someone messes with his hair. He has his priorities.

    • antistratfordian - Jun 24, 2014 at 1:48 PM

      He would’ve been more pissed if neither of the Big 3 opted out. Hopefully they all do.

  11. cantonbound13 - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:21 AM

    When’s the decision show?

    • mazblast - Jun 24, 2014 at 11:30 AM

      If there is a God, and if LeBron has an intelligence level above that of a sloth, he will not make a big production out of his small-d decision. That whole thing cost him a lot of fans, and not just in Cleveland.

      If he decides to sign elsewhere, he should just hold an ordinary press conference, thank the Heat profusely, and be humble for once.

      • bougin89 - Jun 24, 2014 at 12:46 PM

        Wouldn’t it be hilarious though if he did another decision show and it was just insanely over the top? I mean for pure comedy reasons maybe he could have a decision show with representatives from each team he’s considering(lets say the top 7) like the draft lottery style? Opening envelops and each team’s representative giving a reaction. Personally, I’d find that hilarious.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 24, 2014 at 1:49 PM

        @bougin89 – thumbs up.

    nobody cares lol

  15. antistratfordian - Jun 24, 2014 at 12:51 PM

    I said yesterday that Melo opting out probably indicated that LeBron was going to opt out too. According to Windhorst, James was supposed to talk to Melo before making a decision. This news is coming a lot sooner than I expected, and just a day after Anthony’s – so they might be up to something.

    • heat256 - Jun 24, 2014 at 1:15 PM

      The more I think about it, having Melo come here really doesn’t solve the issues the Heat have, namely consistent PG play, rebounding, and wing depth. Getting 2 good players for what Melo would cost has to be something that can be impressed upon those guys. Now, if they say it’s Melo or we walk, then it’s Melo and everyone has to deal with it.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 24, 2014 at 2:23 PM

        Of course they would still have issues to address some things, but the addition of Melo would instantly alter Miami’s strengths and weaknesses. Teams would be forced to attack them differently so the same issues they had wouldn’t necessarily remain as they were.

        Rebounding doesn’t concern me as much as PG play. A scoring threat at PG would slow down opposing guards a bit, which obviously helps defensively.

      • bucrightoff - Jun 24, 2014 at 2:58 PM

        Miami’s defense was awful against San Antonio. Add in one of the poorest, least committed defensive players in the league and a rematch next year might have San Antonio winning the series by 100 points and not 70.

      • antistratfordian - Jun 24, 2014 at 8:09 PM

        @bucrightoff – SAS would be forced to approach Miami differently. It’s a lot easier to defend against LeBron and Wade than LeBron and Melo. That alone would help the Heat’s defense.

        I’m not expecting San Antonio to be back. I think it’s probably going to be OKC.

  16. seansull83 - Jun 24, 2014 at 2:01 PM

    Here is the real deal on this situation, LeBron has just made the first move to see what is going to happen. I can see Bosh opting out and resigning a longer deal to restructure cap space, but I don’t see Wade doing so. He might not last 2 years. I don’t know how serious his knee issues are but he is putting up a good front say he is fine.

    There is a lot of holes to fill as well. It’s not just C and PG, but thier bench is a shell of itself. So this is the first step in either seeing the front office make moves or look elsewhere. I don’t see how it can work personally because they realistically need 5 players, and to make it work they need to do minimum contracts on question mark players. It could work or blowup in thier face.

    Also not everyone is a closet LBJ fan and every team doesn’t want him. He has a high price tag and he is past the point in his career where he feels the need to be part of a rebuilding process. As a Celtic fan LBJ would kill any chance we would have for long term success. We might become a playoff team with him on the roster but never champions, with so many projects in the works.

  17. rohlo - Jun 24, 2014 at 2:46 PM

    the only team i can see him leaving the heat for would be the rockets! its gonna be either he stays in miami or he jets to houston! the big 3 of james,harden,howard would be there for 4 years + and its a much younger 3 than a wade,bosh,james big 3 !!! i still think he ends up staying in miami,but houston would be the only other team that makes sense for winning now as james isnt getting younger and needs to win rings now as he tries to chase down the greats in terms of titles! a heat tea, with chalmers and norris cole as your point gaurds isnt doing a damn thing with those 3 of wade,bosh,james.the pg position was a weak link in them being dominated by the spurs!

  18. AZ Dem - Jun 24, 2014 at 5:10 PM

    Look, people, the guy who wrote the article above got it right. At least in part. James is about 30, and he’s looking at his last long term contract. I don’t think he’s looking to leave Miami. He just wants the stability that a long term deal provides. For both players and coaches, it can be very difficult when you’re in your last year of a contract.

    The point that I question, however, is the max deal. If LeBron gets a max, D-Wade and Bosh will demand a max. That means that Miami’s roster will be composed of 3 All-Stars and a bunch of glorified D-Leaguers.

    I don’t think that the players and their agents understand what’s going on. The new (well, it’s not exactly “new”) CBA heavily favors the owners and actually punishes players who want max deals. The luxury tax is not the minor hindrance that it used to be. Today, it’s a true penalty. And it hurts. LAL doesn’t want to pay it. Mark Cuban doesn’t want to pay it. Even that maniac at NYK is getting gun shy about going over the cap. And NYK has the advantage of owning both the arena and the television network that carries the games.

    Under this CBA, I just can’t see how you can win a championship with max contracts on your books. Kobe’s insane contract basically has LAL mgt hog-tied. If I could ask Kobe one question, it would “how do you expect mgt to build a championship caliber team when you’re taking up 35% (or whatever it is) of the team’s cap space?”

    Tom Brady has taken pay cut after pay cut. He’d rather have quality players around him than the money. Tom Brady is a guy who truly wants to win. He’s already one of the lowest paid QBs in the league. And he’d play for the minimum if he thought it would help win a championship.

    In all of the 4 major sports, the owners have hoodwinked the players’ unions. If you’re a star player and you want to win, you have to take less money. If LeBron, D-Wade, Bosh want to return to MIA, they’re going to have to take less money, so Riley can go out there and get some more guys.

    I see a lot of pro\con post or LeBron. I think a huge chunk of hate came from “the announcement”. Just think for a moment about him growing up. I think pretty much since he was a middle schooler he’s been on the radar of every agent, college(even though he chose not to attend) and the front office of every NBA team. He’s had this pressure on him to be as good as he is. And for the most part I feel he’s been a good guy. He hasn’t been in any trouble with the law or any Baby Momma Drama. I feel, and this is only my opinion,that the big “announcement” really bent some peoples ear and won’t look at the positives this guy brings. I’m one year shy of 50. I have seen a lot of great players. A LOT. Seen Mike win a bunch in Chicago. I’ve seen Kobe and heard how HE was anointed the”Next One”. But LeBron is going to be a ledgon in the likes of Wilt Chamberlin. To me Wilt was the best. Just because rules were changed\implimented due to how great he was to the compitition he faced. Now I’m no saying LeBron will have rules changed because of him. But I am saying he’s as a dominate as Wilt was

      “If Michael was here right now, I would say to him: When you are so great that the league tries to change the rules in an attempt to stop you then you can claim you are the best ever. Every rule change I have seen during your career has been meant to enhance your game.”

    After the dust settles from the upcoming draft I will still not care about this. Let these people play their games. The money is so absurd – he gets $20,000,000 a year and he feels disrespected because he doesn’t make enough money.

    How absurd is that?

      Who feels disrespected?

    Notice how the vitriol towards Lebron has been toned down. People actually feel sorry for him, not that they would ever admit it, because he lost his chance to 3-peat. There is a Santa Claus and hope for the human race.

      22yrs…

      Stats, stats, stats… I’m thinking, thinking…

      Sesame Street was brought to you today by the letter”L” and the number 3.

      Now kids, the “L” stands for loss, lost, loser.

      And kids, the #3 was what the Heat HAD a chance to do until they Lost their chance at it.

      Sesame Street would like to give a big shout out to the Heat and Lebron (hey kids, there’s the “L” again for losing, lost, loss and loser).
