Rumors run rampant during this time of the season. Especially when a summer features the impending free agency’s of LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh — amongst others — it’s not a surprised that they’re a little big worse.
Sometimes even false.
However, every rumor should be taken for what it is — no matter how outlandish they may seem or how fact-bearing they appear. As we saw in 2010, anything can happen during NBA free agency.
While the biggest of free agents, LeBron James, opted out of his contract with the Miami Heat earlier this week to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, his running mates, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, will reportedly join him.
Or so it seems.
Re: my mentions. 1. Can't comment on other reports. 2. Heat like Kyle Lowry. 3. Expecting Bosh/Wade 2 opt out over wkd. Enjoy ur evenings.

Then again, rumors.
As of this very moment, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have not made decisions on their contract options, I've been told.

Bosh and Wade have until Monday to declare whether they will opt in or out of their final two years of their current contracts with the Heat.
Free agency begins July 1 (Tuesday).
