Dwayne Wade recently completed his 15th NBA season. He’s still unsure if he will return for a 16th.
The 36-year-old guard said in a recent interview on Fox Sports Radio’s “Chris and Caron” show that he has yet to make a decision about retiring. But, Wade said he only wants to play for the Heat if he returns for 2018-19.
“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 said.
Wade spent the first 13 seasons of his career with the Heat, winning three championships in that time frame. He played for the Bulls in 2016 and signed a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Cavaliers in late September.
Wade, however, appeared in just 46 games for Cleveland before he was dealt back to the Heat in February. Wade averaged 12 points per game for Miami after the trade.
“It’s crazy because in this league you never know what happens,” Wade said. “I never even thought I would leave Miami … But things happen.”
The Heat fell to the 76ers in the first round of the playoffs. Wade averaged 16.6 points per game in that series.
