MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade has made his choice. Chris Bosh is still mulling his.

Wade has told the Heat that he is opting out of the final two years and nearly $42 million in his contract, and will become a free agent on Tuesday. That’s the same decision that LeBron James revealed earlier in the week.

Udonis Haslem has also told the Heat that he will not pick up his $4.6 million option for next season.

But Bosh is still weighing his options, agent Henry Thomas told The Associated Press, after a miscommunication earlier in the day suggested that the forward was already sold on the idea of opting out.

The decisions by James and now Wade and Haslem are considered good for the Heat, since those three moves alone free up about $45 million in what would have been salary Miami was committed to paying next season. That gives Miami tons of flexibility to lure their stars back into new deals — plus have enough money left over to make additional roster upgrades.
