Heat sign G Dwyane Wade.
It's a one-year, $20 million deal for the future Hall of Famer. "For over a decade, Dwyane has embodied what it means to wear the Miami Heat uniform," said Heat President Pat Riley. "He has been the pillar and constant of this organization, and is a true champion in every sense of the word. We are thrilled that Dwyane has re-signed and will lead us as we look to win another NBA Championship." Jul 10 - 5:57 PM

Dwyane Wade has reportedly accepted a one-year, $20 million deal to remain with the Heat.

Wade was reportedly looking for a multi-year deal, but it looks like he'll settle for $20 million instead. Wade put in respectable averages of 21.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.2 steals per game during the 2014-15 season, but he also only made it through 62 games. He's fun to own when healthy, but unfortunately he's just not healthy enough, and we'd recommend letting someone else deal with him on draft day.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat are progressing in talks on a multi-year deal.

Wade reportedly wants a max contract offer, and the Heat will likely be more willing to give him one since Goran Dragic re-signed at a discount. The Lakers are reportedly still hoping to get a meeting with Wade, but it looks like the Heat are still the clear favorites to sign him.

Dwyane Wade reportedly wants a max contract offer from the Heat.

Wade could be looking for a two-year deal with a player option for the third year, but all signs point to him staying in Miami. The Heat just signed Goran Dragic at a discount and Luol Deng opted in for the 2015-16 season, so it's up to Wade to keep Miami's core together.
Jul 1 - 1:00 PM

Unrestricted free agent Dwyane Wade and owner Micky Arison have met to discuss a way forward.

The Heat want Wade back, but Wade is looking for a big multiple-year deal. According to Chris Broussard, league executives are saying there "is not a robust market" for Wade. Unless some contending team offers what Wade wants, he's likely to stay with the Heat for being such an icon in the city.

Dwyane Wade is unlikely to leave the Miami Heat, according to multiple sources.

Wade is set to become a free agent after he declined to pick up his player option for the 2015-16 season, but various sources have indicated that Wade is likely to re-sign with the Heat unless he receives the perfect offer from another team. We'll keep an eye on Wade's destination as the free agency process unfolds, but it sounds like Heat fans shouldn't start burning their D-Wade jerseys just yet.

Dwyane Wade will not pick up his player option for next season and will be a free agent.

The vast majority of players are opting out this summer, so he still could wind up with the Heat next season. Still, Miami is the favorite to land Wade, but Goran Dragic figures to be a better bet to be in a Heat uniform next season. Expect Wade to get some interviews with some contending teams.
Jun 29 - 3:35 PM

Dwyane Wade is expected to opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent.

Wade has a midnight (Eastern) deadline to exercise the option, but that's been an unlikely scenario all along. Wade will enter unrestricted free agency, and although the expectation is that he'll remain in Miami, the Heat are going to have to get very creative in order to keep some flexibility and pay all of their stars what they desire.

Pat Riley said that he wants Dwyane Wade to finish his career as a member of the Miami Heat.

"We respect him, we want him back, we want him here for the rest of his career — that’s obvious," Riley said of Wade. "We’re gonna try to do everything we can do to make that happen. We love Dwyane. Dwyane is a pillar. He has been part of the root structure and the foundation of this franchise for the last 12 years. … We know that on July 1, we’ll be the first ones that he’ll talk to and we’ll go from there." Wade has been rumored to be entertaining the idea of leaving the Heat for either the Cavs or the Lakers, but that could also be a ploy to get Miami to put in a strong offer during free agency. Wade's health is a major concern, and he'll be a risky option in next year's fantasy drafts.

Rival executives believe that Dwyane Wade will leave the Miami Heat for the Lakers or Cavaliers.

It's worth noting that another rival general manager thinks that Wade will work something out with Heat president Pat Riley, so we're likely to see some more twists in this road. Wherever he ends up, the 33-year-old isn't the same player fantasy owners have become accustomed to after missing 48 games over the past two seasons and will be more of a mid-to-late round target in drafts.

Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat do not currently have a meeting scheduled, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Contrary to reports, Wade and the Heat do not have a scheduled meeting to address contract issues in advance of his opt-in deadline on Monday. The source said any meeting is more likely to happen after free agency begins on July 1, so it's looking more and more likely that Wade will decline his $16.1 million player option for next season. An opt-out doesn't mean the 33-year-old is necessarily on his way out of Miami, but his return will get a bit more complicated if Wade hits the open market.

Dwyane Wade’s trust in the Heat has been damaged by their stance in contract negotiations, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

This report adds a friend of Wade has described him as "pissed" and not feeling like a priority to the organization. Earlier today, ESPN reported the Lakers, Clippers and Cavs could have interest in Wade. Free agency starts next week and Wade figures to be one of the main stories in what figures to be a relatively quiet free agency period.
Jun 22 - 4:08 PM

The Heat and Dwyane Wade will meet within the next week to "address contract issues and attempt to reach an agreement on the future," sources told ESPN.

Wade has until next Monday, June 29, to decide whether he's going to opt out for next season and test free agency. Sources say the Heat and Wade are far apart in their desires, and that's been clear for some time now. While Wade would like to finish his career with the Heat, the "gulf" between the two sides needs to be bridged for that to happen. The Lakers are Wade's other option—and they may be his only option if Miami continues to play hardball.

There is reportedly mutual interest between Dwyane Wade and the Lakers.

A move to a rebuilding team in Los Angeles really makes close to zero sense for Wade at this point in his career, but LA will have money to spend during free agency, and with Wade reportedly "upset" with the Heat regarding his contract situation, there's sure to be plenty of rumors regarding his potential free agency. Wade has a player option worth $16.1 million for the upcoming season, but reports up to this point would suggest that he will opt out in order to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. His father said during a recent interview to pray that Wade remains in Miami, so right now, there's not a lot of clarity on what jersey he's likely to be sporting next year.
Jun 21 - 5:44 PM

Dwyane Wade used the past tense when discussing his time in Miami during Tuesday's NBA Finals telecast, but a short while later he said "we" when referring to the Heat.

It's a non-story which nevertheless had Heat fans in a panic for a few minutes, especially since a recent report suggested he's upset with Miami's front office. Wade hasn't officially opted out of his $16.1 million player option and is likely balancing the benefits of a longer-term deal with the possibility of a larger windfall when the salary cap rises next summer. We'll be following all the ins-and-outs of his decision, as proven by this blurb.
