LeBron James' agent Rich Paul has told the Miami Heat LeBron will exercise his early termination option.
Of course he is. Because that's what LeBron is really about. He abandoned Cleveland for more money and a better chance at an NBA title by joining an All Star team in Miami and now that they've won the title but failed to repeat, he is going to snub $20.59 million this season ($22.1125 in 2015) and look for more money around the league. He's not about loyalty or team-building. He's a hired gun who will go to the highest bidder with the best chance to win. Despite playing in an era where free agency dominates all sports, this type of team-jumping gives fans very little reason to respect him as a player. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Hassan Whiteside (hand) will not play Sunday.
Whiteside has been great this season, but it will be hard to trust him next season considering all the games he has missed. With Chris Andersen out as well, Udonis Haslem will have to play nearly all of the minutes at center for Miami. Michael Beasley should see more playing time as well.Both are decent fantasy plays.
