According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, "the Heat's preference" is to re-sign Dwyane Wade to a one-year contract.
Such a move would be done in order to preserve 2017 flexibility, not because Miami isn't committed to its franchise player. Wade has made no secret of the fact that he wants and plans to spend the rest of his career with the Heat, so this is more of an update than an evolving part of an uncertain narrative. Per Jackson, the Heat expect Wade's salary to come in between $15-$20 million annually for next year. May 30 - 9:14 AM

Pat Riley hinted that he fully expects to re-sign Dwyane Wade this summer.

"He wants to win, I think, as much as he wants to do anything," Riley said. "Compensation to a player is not just a way to get paid and to live your life. Compensation to a player is about recognition and respect and place. We know where he belongs…He’s a lifer. What he’s done in this city over the last 13 years is irreplaceable and so we’re going to do the right thing. There’s no doubt." While Wade is fully expected to return to Miami, it's unclear if he's willing to take a discount to give his team more financial flexibility in free agency.

Dwyane Wade again re-stated his desire to finish his career with the Miami Heat.

"I don’t want to be on the market at all," Wade said of his impending free agency. "I’m not curious at all. I want to get to it [with the Heat]. I want to be able to sign my deal and move on and not have to deal with any rumors, any free agency, any this, any that. This is where I want to end my career. So we’ll figure it out." Pat Riley echoed Wade's sentiment saying, "We know where he belongs… He’s a lifer." Expect Wade's free agency to be handled quickly sans surprises.

Pat Riley wants Dwyane Wade to work on his 3-pointers this summer.

"Maybe he could become a 40 percent, 38 percent 3-point shooter," Riley said of Wade. "I wouldn’t give him an open look. Once he went to work with the coaches on it, that shot, if he had to take it, was normal. That would be a big added part of his game next year because nobody ever thinks he can do that." Wade's 3-point shot has always been his biggest weakness, but he did shoot 52.2 percent from deep in the postseason and that could give his fantasy value a boost next season.

Dwyane Wade said that this season "energized" him.

"[This season] for sure energized me going forward," Wade said. "However long I’m going to play, I’m excited to hopefully play healthy from now on." The story of Wade switching trainers last offseason didn't get enough play in his resurgence, and it was the first time since 2010-11 that he managed to appear in more than 70 regular season. Wade added that he plans to work on his 3-point shot this offseason and anticipates taking more 3PA next year, a potential development that would add value to his fantasy appeal.

Dwyane Wade's season ended on Sunday in a 116-89 road loss at Toronto, which he finished with 16 points (6-of-13 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), four rebounds, three assists and four turnovers.

Wade came in with a 5-2 record in Game 7's during his auspicious career, but the short-handed Heat didn't have enough to advance with both Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside on the sidelines. The 34-year-old tweaked his right ankle late in the game but it wasn't serious, and he refused to make any excuses after the game, saying, "The better team won." He stayed healthy and productive this season, ensuring that he'll draw plenty of attention this summer as an unrestricted free agent.
May 15 - 7:14 PM

Dwyane Wade was terrific yet again during a 103-91 Game 6 win over the Raptors on Friday, scoring 22 points with six rebounds, five assists, three blocks, two steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

He hit a couple big milestones tonight, becoming 12th on the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list and he also now has the most blocks for a guard in the postseason. Wade has been extremely busy in these playoffs with his 32.5 usage rate and 34 minutes per game. He'll need another big game in Toronto on Sunday for Game 7.
May 13 - 11:32 PM

Dwyane Wade finished Game 5 with 20 points (6-of-14 FGs, 7-of-10 FTs), seven rebounds, four assists and one block in 34 minutes, but it wasn't enough to avoid a road loss in Toronto.

Wade looked tired tonight and it's hard to blame him, as the veteran is averaging 33.4 minutes in the playoffs while serving as his team's engine -- his usage rate of 33.0 percent is fourth-highest in the postseason. He picked it up in the fourth quarter, benefiting from a few questionable foul calls, and will lay it all on the line as he seeks to avoid elimination at home on Friday.
May 11 - 10:51 PM

Dwyane Wade said being booed in Toronto on Wednesday won't hurt his feelings.

If you missed it, Wade's pre-game routine is to make his last shot in warmups, but it took him too long on Monday and it caused him to warm up while the Canadian national anthem was playing. This story is being overblown, but there's no doubt Wade will be hearing from the Air Canada Centre crowd. He's still arguably the strongest DFS stud tonight.
May 11 - 3:41 PM

Dwyane Wade said that he's been feeling healthy through Miami's postseason run.

"I’m as confident as I’ve been all season right now," Wade said. "Every other day we’re playing and it is very taxing. I love that every time I come out on the court, I feel as good as I did the last game. It allows me to play the game that I love the way that I can. I’m having fun." Wade has been phenomenal for Miami during their second-round series, compiling averages of 27.3 points, 6.0 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.5 treys and 1.3 steals per game. He's finally feeling healthy after dealing with some knee issues over the past few years, and that has been on full display with his play.
May 10 - 4:30 PM

Dwyane Wade was spectacular again during a 94-87 overtime victory over the Raptors on Monday, scoring 30 points with four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 39 minutes.

There is almost too, too much Wade right now. He has a 35.2 usage rate in this series, and he's made good use of it with a 56.9 true shooting percentage. Wade is also leading the team in assists and is second in rebounding. The future Hall of Famer passed Magic Johnson for 13th on the all-time playoff scoring list. As for the Heat, they managed to outmaneuver the Raptors with their small-ball. Wade is basically a must-use DFS option.
May 10 - 12:10 AM

Dwyane Wade scored 38 points during a Game 3 95-91 loss to the Raptors on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He finished with 29 points in the second half in a showdown against Kyle Lowry. Wade now has eight 3-pointers in his last five games, which tops his 2015-16 season total of seven. His jumper is as on as ever and now the Heat will have to rely more on an offensive, faster-tempo style if Hassan Whiteside (knee) is out. Wade is basically a must-use player in DFS right now. As for the Heat, they've lost home-court advantage after taking Game 1 in Toronto.
May 7 - 8:07 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 17 points in a 96-92 overtime Game 2 loss to the Raptors on Thursday, adding six rebounds, three assists, five turnovers and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

He hurt his leg after an awkward landing and with Jonas Valanciunas falling on him. Wade's been dealing with a left knee issue and it seems like this injury was unrelated. The bigger problem for the Heat was their 21 turnovers in this loss in a game they probably should've won. They'll head to Miami for Game 3 with this series all tied up 1-1.
May 5 - 11:16 PM

Dwyane Wade (knee) will play against the Raptors in Game 2 on Thursday.

Wade was a full participant in shootaround on Thursday and said he felt fine afterwards. Wade scored 24 points in Game 1 and should be a solid DFS play in Game 2 on Thursday night.
May 5 - 12:44 PM

Dwyane Wade (knee) is probable for Thurdsay's Game 2 against the Raptors.

This news comes as no surprise as Wade said his left knee was fine after Game 1. His bone bruise may slow him down a tad, but there's no reason to think Wade won't be a productive DFS target as long as he's on the court.
