Sources are reporting that Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat have finally reached an agreement in terms of his new contract. Wade, who announced the news himself via his Instagram account (pictured below) has signed onto a two-year deal, worth roughly $34 million. However, it is important to note that there is a player-option set for the 2015-2016 season.
This is the second time Wade has taken a pay cut (the first being in 2010 when the infamous Big Three were born). In this instance, Wade is helping to give teammate Chris Bosh a full five-year, maximum deal, and new Miami Mafia member, Luol Deng, a two-year deal worth $20 million.
Although some NBA fans spoke of their desire for Wade to branch out to another city (after LeBron James’ announcement that he was returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers), it is no secret that Wade has dedicated his entire career to making the Heat the best team it can be; and personally, I do not see that changing anytime soon. Wade may support James’ decision but that certainly does not mean he plans to head to the Chicago Bulls, down the line.
