is reporting that LeBron James will exercise his early termination option with the Miami Heat and become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
Opting out does not mean that James has decided to leave the Heat, sources said.
James, a four-time NBA MVP, had until June 30 to decide whether to opt out of the final two years of his contract with the Heat. He was scheduled to make $20 million next season and had two years and about $42.7 million remaining on his deal.
In his four seasons in Miami, LeBron and the Heat have reached the NBA Finals four times, and have won two championships.
Where do you think LeBron will end up next year?
