Heat's Jones, Lewis exercise player options

MIAMI (AP) -- James Jones and Rashard Lewis have exercised their player options to remain with the Miami Heat next season.

Both moves were expected, and announced Tuesday. Jones is due to make $1.5 million this coming season, and is coming off a year where he scored 60 points in 38 regular-season appearances.

Lewis will make just under $1.4 million, and averaged 5.2 points in 55 games in his first Heat season.

Miami still has a team option to pick up on starting point guard Mario Chalmers, who will make $4 million next year if he remains with the Heat. Miami has until Sunday to exercise its option on Chalmers, who said on Tuesday that he expects to hear formal word from the team in the next couple of days.
