Just catching up, PJ Tucker opting out from the Heat was expected. It merely is the means of securing a higher starting salary next season, and more than a single season. – 7:33 PM

Not necessarily surprised PJ Tucker is opting out. It’s a good way for him to secure more money and/or a longer deal.
Heat have to do what they can to keep him. They don’t really another starter-level 4 on the roster.
My guess is he sticks in Miami, where he’s been a great fit. – 6:11 PM
