Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh said during a radio interview Tuesday that he will return to the team next season.

Bosh and teammates LeBron James and Dwyane Wade each have an early termination option in their contracts and can opt out this offseason.

Bosh is scheduled to make $20,590,000 next season and $22,112,500 in the 2015-2016 season. The forward, 30, can sign for more money should he opt out and then return to the Heat.

“Yeah, I mean, I don’t want to go anywhere. I like it here. It’s Miami," Bosh said on ESPN Radio, via The Palm Beach Post. "Everybody wants to come here. Yeah.”

When asked if he would accept a below-market offer from the Heat, he answered, “If that’s what it takes.”

Bosh, a nine-time All-Star selection, averaged 16.2 points a game this season, his lowest output since his rookie season. The Heat are one win away from a fourth-consecutive appearance in the NBA Finals.
