Wade: Will only play for Heat if returning
Wade was reportedly offered a three-year, $25 million contract last month to play for the Zhejiang Golden Bulls of the Chinese Basketball Association, which would have made him the highest-paid player in China. But Wade apparently isn't considering joining the CBA.
However, the 36-year-old isn't in a rush to make his decision about rejoining the Heat.
"There's no clock for me," he said.
The 12-time All-Star played his first 13 seasons with the Heat before signing with the Chicago Bulls for 2016-17. He started the 2017-18 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers before being traded back to Miami for the final 21 games of the season.
"I want him back as a player," Heat president Pat Riley told reporters in July. "I want him back as a competitor. I want him back as a guy who wants to have the greatest year he ever had as a player. I read more articles about, 'Dwyane being done, he's lost a step, he's not the same player, he might not have the same motivation.' But I still see a player who can contribute heavily if he really wants to."
