Chris Bosh has joined Dwyane Wade and LeBron James in opting out of his contract with Miami. The move was not unexpected, and gives the Heat a gigantic amount of financial flexibility to shop with when the free-agent window officially opens at midnight tomorrow. James opted out of his contract last Tuesday, and Wade did the same on Saturday. While they've opted out of their contracts, none of the three has expressed true interest in leaving the franchise after taking the Heat to four straight NBA Finals.
