As Miami Heat president Pat Riley begins to pursue free agency at 12:01 a.m. ET Tuesday, LeBron James and his Big Three teammates plan to give the franchise a window to recruit a supporting cast and close deals with them, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Heat's free agents – James, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem – have the framework of deals in place to remain with Miami, arming Riley with his limitations within the salary cap to sign talent, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

And with the Saturday revelation that Heat guard Dwyane Wade and forward Udonis Haslem would opt out of their contracts like James recently did (with forward Chris Bosh possibly next in line), it's unclear whether the possibility remains that James might be confident enough in Heat president Pat Riley's approach that he doesn't ultimately make any free agency rounds. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the situation. USA Today Sports

The following statement was released today: “Today we were notified of Dwyane’s intention to opt-out of his contract and Udonis’ intention to not opt into his contract, making both players free agents. Dwyane has been the cornerstone of our organization for over a decade, and we hope he remains a part of the HEAT family for life. Udonis has been the heartbeat of this team for 11 years. He has sacrificed countless times to make this organization successful, and he is the epitome of what this organization stands for. We look forward to meeting with Dwyane and Udonis and their agent in the coming days to discuss our future together.” NBA.com
