Kelly Olynyk will likely opt in to the $13.2 million player option on his contract next season.
This isn't your traditional "report" when the NBA news is slow and we're just going off one of the Heat beat writers here, but he's one of the most veteran beat reporters in the league. The Heat would likely want Olynyk to opt out for next year because they have such a surplus at small forward and coach Erik Spoelstra has leaned on small-ball fours more often, and Bam Adebayo can log huge minutes as a four or a five. Additionally, this would make it much less likely the Heat bring back impending free agent Meyers Leonard. Olynyk wouldn't have much fantasy value in Miami for 2020-21. Apr 29 3:29 pm (EST)
