LeBron James opts out of contract, will become free agent

  • Marcus Burnan


Ever since the NBA Finals (and even before) there has been speculation as to whether LeBron James will opt out of the final year of his contract or stay a member of the Miami Heat for the 2014-15 NBA season.

We can now at least answer one of those questions to rest.  LeBron James has announced he will opt out of his final contract year with the Miami Heat and become a free-agent.

Now the speculation will be where LeBron will sign, and while some may doubt it, there’s a good chance that his opting out is more of a power move by James to put some pressure on the Heat ownership.

James was due to be paid $20.59 million for the season which would have been his fifth with the team had he chosen to opt in and remain with the Heat.

Personally, after his team failed him during the NBA Finals where they were soundly beaten in five games by the San Antonio Spurs, you can’t blame James for wanting to get out of South Beach.  Of course, he could stay with Miami   Whatever happens, there’s going to be a lot of talk about ‘The Decision II’ and where James will end up.
