The Heat big three all opt out

MIAMI (AP) – LeBron James went first. Dwyane Wade followed a few days later. And now Chris Bosh has made it a clean sweep.

Bosh told the Heat 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.
