A surefire lock for the Hall of Fame, Dwyane Wade has not committed to playing another year in the NBA. Wade, who has played 15 seasons in the league, is currently a free agent.
The shooting guard enjoyed a strong close to the 2017-18 season, as he performed well for the Miami Heat in their playoff matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers. In the series, Wade proved that he can still play at a high level, even if it is not the same caliber that allowed him to carry Miami in his younger years.
Wade would seemingly fit on a host of teams, and he even has a sizeable offer from the Chinese Basketball Association. According to reports, Wade has a 3-year, $25 million contract offer on the table to play in China.
“In due time,” Wade told reporters when asked about his future plans. “My son is a junior in high school right now. Every decision at this point, especially in a professional athlete's career, at 36 years old, a lot of it surrounds around their families and what is best for their family.”
For Wade to return to the Heat, he would likely have to settle for either the $5.3 million exception or the $2.4 million veteran minimum.
Wade split last season with the Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers. He elevated his game significantly in the playoffs, averaging 16.6 PPG in a little over 25 minutes per game.
