Dwyane Wade isn't shedding much light on his future.

The 12-time All-Star guard sidestepped questions about whether or not he will play at 16th NBA season during a conference call on Monday.

"In due time," Wade said. "Time will tell."

The 36-year-old Wade is also considering retirement. He spent his first 13 seasons with the Miami Heat before playing one season with the Chicago Bulls and a half-season with the Cleveland Cavaliers before returning to the Heat last season.

Miami president Pat Riley said last week that the franchise is willing to wait on Wade's decision. Riley is hopeful Wade reveals his intentions by mid-August.

"I want him back as a player," Riley told reporters. "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."

Overall, Wade has averaged 22.5 points, 5.5 assists and 4.7 rebounds in just over 34 minutes per game.

Last season, he averaged just 11.4 points in 67 games between the Cavaliers and Heat.
