Lebron James to Opt Out of Contract

Lebron James

LeBron James' agent, Richie Paul, has informed the Miami Heat that James will exercise his early termination option and become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Opting out does not mean James has decided to leave the Heat, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press, who spoke on condition of anonymity because neither the four-time NBA MVP nor the team had made any public announcement.

James had 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.

That in mind, here are the top three likely destinations for Lebron James, new free agent, basketball icon, and maven internet troll.

1. Miami

I honestly don’t think he’s leaving. Just wants to put some fire in D. Wade’s belly. And by “put some fire in D.Wade’s belly” I mean “convince D.Wade to start working out again and stop making 3am runs to Wing Stop and the 24-hour Chipotle.”

2. Cleveland

Still, f*ck Dan Gilbert today. F*ck Dan Gilbert tomorrow. And f*ck Dan Gilbert forever.

3. Dallas Cowboys

Because why not?
