Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has a number of options heading into the 2018-19 NBA season, and it looks like everything is still on the table.
Wade recently revealed that if he decides to continue his playing career, he would like to remain with the Heat. However, he has not committed to playing another season and could opt for retirement.
Wade had a strong close to the season after several tumultuous months with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“If I decide to come back and play the game of basketball, I would love for it obviously to be in Miami,” Wade said on a Yahoo! Sports podcast. “At this point for me, sitting here, contemplating on playing the game of basketball, my only vision as I sit here today is playing in a Miami Heat uniform.”
Wade showcased moments of brilliance in the Heat’s opening series with the Philadelphia 76ers. In two separate games, the future Hall of Famer erupted for 28 points and 25 points. The 76ers outlasted the Heat in five games.
Wade averaged 11.4 PPG and 3.4 APG, although his role varied. Wade upped his point totals significantly in the playoffs, tallying 16.6 PPG.
The Heat are slated to have a full backcourt next season, as Dion Waiters will return from injury. Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson will also occupy a large share of minutes. Wade did, however, serve well as a ball-handler when relieving Dragic as point guard off the bench.
