NBA Rumors: Big Three Mapping Their Return To Miami


NBA Rumors

This summer may end up being a lot less hectic than we all expected it to be — thanks to LeBron James.

According to a report from ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade are now working on financial terms of their potential new Heat deals with each other.

After agreeing to all opt out of their contracts together, Miami Heat stars LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade have been discussing financial terms of new contracts among each other, sources told ESPN.com.

The talks between the three players is the strongest indication yet that James plans to re-sign with the Heat after he becomes a free agent on Tuesday. Unlike in 2010 when all three took nearly identical contracts, the discussions this time have included the possibility that James would draw the highest salary among the three, sources said.

The Big Three could all take somewhere are $13 million a piece, and use the rest of the $55 million of the Heat’s cap space to try and sign Carmelo Anthony and/or an upgraded supporting class.

Technically, LeBron James hasn’t stated that he is “for sure” going to re-sign with the Heat, but the signs are almost resounding. At this point, if LeBron didn’t return to Miami it would shock the basketball world.

Maybe this free agency period won’t be as crazy as the historical 2010 offseason was. At least, it’s not shaping up to be.

    Fingers crossed. Assuming they are able to get either Gortat or Lowry, those would be better players at those positions than James has ever had the luxury of playing with. Miami has the potential to be much more well rounded next year.
