The Heat's triumvirate of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, all possess early-termination options (ETO) in their contracts before next season, which would make all three unrestricted free agents this summer.
Unlikes Carmelo Anthony, who has publicly said he'll opt out of the final year of his deal with the New York Knicks to test free agency, the Miami Heat's "Big Three" of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh also have the option of opting out of the final year of their contracts this summer, but they've remained tight-lipped about their future plans as they try and win their third consecutive NBA Title this season.
We can at least thank the lockout for this much: It pushed the season back and now that the Finals are over - even if they ended much quicker than any of us expected - the NBA Draft is literally right around the corner.
After taking in the reaction from the LeBronapalooza last night, you would think the world had ended.
If you think that a franchise's coach or general manager doesn't have influence on whether or not a free agent with sign (or stay) with your franchise - think again.
