Miami Heat President Pat Riley was hopeful that Dwyane Wade will end up returning for his 16th season while mentioning that “I have a real good feeling that UD is going to be back.”
Riley stressed this was just his “gut feeling” and not an official announcement regarding Udonis Haslem. As for Wade, the previous time frame of a mid-August decision has been pushed back to after Labor Day. Due to Heat’s the salary cap position, their options for Wade are the $5.3 million taxpayer mid-level exception and the $2.4 million veteran’s minimum. If Wade decides to come back, he’ll be 36 years old and coming off his worst season fantasy wise, one in which he barely finished inside the top-220, and the first time in his career finishing outside of the top-100. Wade’s age and injury history make him a poor target in standard leagues.
