MIAMI James Jones talked about retiring after last season. But there are no such thoughts now.
The Miami shooting guard plans to pick up his 1.5 million player option for next season and return to the Heat.
Unless something crazy happens, Ill be back, Jones said Wednesday in an interview with FOX Sports Florida.
Jones said after the Heat won the championship last season he most definitely was thinking about retiring. But he returned this season and now says hes not considering retirement.
Not at all, Jones said. Those stories get blown up.
Jones, 32, is making 1.76 million this season, although he has a total take of 3.35 million when one considers buyout money he got from the Heat in the summer of 2010. After making 1.5 million next season, Jones then plans to evaluate his situation.
I got one more year, and well see where it goes from there, Jones said of what he might do after next season.
The 10-year veteran played in just 38 regular-season games this season and averaged 1.6 points. Its not out of the question, though, he could play a bigger role for the Heat next year.
Shooting guard Ray Allen wont make a decision until after the season whether he will pick up his 3.23 million option for 2013-14. And theres a strong chance the Heat will release shooting guard Mike Miller as part of the NBAs amnesty rule.
