    Will LeBron James play for Miami next year?

    Lakers, Cavs, and Knicks will all be hard after him since his contract will be up after this season. What does everyone think? I think it'd be fun to see him go back to the Cavs and mentor Irving and whoever they select #1 in this years draft. Not sure how Cav fans would welcome him back though.

    I think the "big 3" are still under contract for next year, but can opt out if they choose this year. I think all three will be back in Miami.

    I honestly think it matters what happens in the Finals this year.

    Re: Will LeBron James play for Miami next year?

    Read this scenario a while back:

    James, Wade, and Bosh can all opt out this summer and sign a new contract for less money and make room to add a guy like Carmelo Anthony this summer.

    But to answer your question, yes the Heat's Big Three will be together next year. Why break up a team that has made it to the Finals four years in a row and might three-peat?

    If Wade is back, all three will be back. If Wade chooses to hang it up, they could all split, although I still doubt it.

    I expect all three to be back.

    They all have an early termination option for next season, and then a player option for the 15-16. Haslem has a player option for next season, and Chris Anderson, Norris Cole and that guy who wants to be closer to home are signed for next season. Everyone else is free.

    Wade will be back. Baring another knee injury I think he still has 3-4 years left in Miami. I see him staying until his contract expires and then Miami gives him a one year deal as a sort of victory lap season.

    I don't think there's anyway D-wade plays potentially 5 more years.

    LeBron is trying to win championships and trying to enhance his legacy, he's not going to waste years of his prime going back to the Cavs and deal with a bad team.

    All three will stay in Miami. Bosh has already said he wants to stay, D-Wade isn't leaving now after spending his whole career in South Beach. It makes no sense for LeBron to leave

    The Cleveland Caveliers will have a few games in Miami next season, and the NBA will rig the tv schedule to send whatever team he is on to Miami. Don't rule out playoff or NBA finals matchups. So yeah, he will play in Miami next season.

    I really don't follow NBA all that much. Is this really a possibility? Is that injury prone or something? I mean Wade was drafted the same year LeBron was.

    Wade isn't retiring this year. He is due something like $40mil over the next two years.
    Which is also why both Bosh and Wade will stay with Miami. (Or at least not opt out, they could be traded) They won't make that kind of money in free agency. LeBron is the only one that wouldn't lose money by leaving, but where would he go that has cap space and a team as good as his supporting cast in Miami? LeBron is also going to not opt out. Meaning all three will be back with Miami barring a trade. And that puts Miami in a tight spot signing free agents.

    Re: Will LeBron James play for Miami next year?

    If I am James, I'm out and looking for a younger core. He has to do everything for this team. Wade is crippled and can only play in about 60% of the games. Bosh is scared of the paint and just wants yo shoot 3's.

    If the cavs can trade the #1 pick and a player for Love, then they look pretty attractive. Maybe he can get melo to go their too.

    Re: Will LeBron James play for Miami next year?

    I think he'll play one more year in Miami then come back to the Cavs. Cleveland fans would welcome him back in a second.

    The Cavs are run by morons though. I could just as easily see them trade Irving, blow the no.1 pick on Embiid and watch Lebron head off to Chicago, NY or LA.
