In a quirk of the Miami Heat's salary structure third-year point guard Norris Cole has become the first and only player locked into the team's 2014-15 payroll.

The Heat announced Tuesday they have picked up the $2038206 fourth-year option for 2014-15 on Cole's rookie-scale contract.

Every other player on the Heat's current roster either has a player option or early-termination option for 2014-15 on their contracts or are already scheduled to become a free agent on July 1 2014.

The Heat had until Oct. 31 to make their decision on Cole the No. 28 pick in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft. The other options Heat players hold on their contracts are due to be exercised after the season.

While there have been plenty of uneven moments over Cole's first two seasons there also have been consecutive NBA championships.

"I'm just controlling what I can control that's just producing on the court" Cole said. "I'm just doing what I can do to show I'm worthy of being here of being on this team."

As for the rest of the Heat roster LeBron James Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh hold early-termination options at season's end; Udonis Haslem Joel Anthony and Chris Andersen hold player options; while Mario Chalmers Shane Battier Ray Allen James Jones Rashard Lewis Greg Oden Michael Beasley Eric Griffin Justin Hamilton Jarvis Varnado Roger Mason Jr. Charlie Westbrook and Larry Drew II have contracts that expire at season's end.
