Heat Pick Up Option On Key Player

by June 20, 2010

You weren’t thinking Dwyane Wade, were you? Anyway, Mario Chalmers will be back on the Heat, as the Sun-Sentinel reports: “Point guard Mario Chalmers has become the third Miami Heat player secured on the books for 2010-11. While neither side would confirm the formal paperwork has been completed, the Sun Sentinel has learned that the Heat has informed Chalmers that it will pick up the option year on his rookie contract. The Heat had until June 24, the day of the NBA Draft, to make its decision. Chalmers now joins forward Michael Beasley and guard Daequan Cook as the only Heat players locked into 2010-11 salaries.”
