James, Wade and Bosh all have decision to make on opting out of contract.
Miami Heat star LeBron James has admitted that there is a degree of uncertainty surrounding his future but he will discuss the situation after his vacation.
The Heat suffered a 4-1 series loss in the NBA Finals to the San Antonio Spurs this year, ending a two-year reign as champions, and as a result it has thrown doubt over where the franchise will go next.
While James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all have options on their contract this summer, Shane Battier has already announced his retirement, Ray Allen could follow suit, Mario Chalmers is a free agent while various other bench players also have expiring contracts.
It is unclear at this early stage what the Heat plan on doing in order to rebuild and compete for a championship again, but speculation has suggested that they will re-negotiate the contracts of their Big Three in order to gain further salary cap flexibility to attract more big names.
However, their strategy will likely depend on what James decides this summer, although there is a general lack of realistic options for him elsewhere around the league.
“There is a conversation that will be had between the three of us — I think that’s only right,” James said, as reported by ESPN.
“We’ve earned that for each other. I don’t know what Dwyane right now is thinking. I don’t know what Chris is thinking right now. We’ll see what happens.”
Bosh maintained this week that he wanted to stay in Miami and believed that his current team-mates would also remain next year, however, Wade remained silent on the topic after his exit interview on Tuesday and that will only add further fuel to the fire over their futures.
