Miami Heat forward LeBron James will exercise an option to terminate his contract.  That means he will now become a free agent.

That does not mean he will definitely leave Miami, but he is free to leave.

The news was first reported by ESPN's Chris Broussard.


LeBron James joined the Miami Heat in 2010.  The whole ordeal was highly publicized and culminated in a televisions "Decision" announcement.

In LeBron's four seasons with the Miami Heat, the team has made the NBA Finals every year and won the NBA Championship twice.

Prior to joining the Heat, LeBron spent seven seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers. In his career, James has won 2 NBA Championships, 2 NBA Finals MVPs, 4 regular season MVPs, and he's been to the NBA All-Star Game 10 times.
