According to Ethan Skolnick of the Miami Herald, the Heat must “re-recruit” Wade after what happened so far in free agency.
Wade was never the number one priority to the Heat this free agency period, not even second priority. With the organization focused on re-signing Hassan Whiteside and trying to land Kevin Durant, it was clear that Wade would have to give another discount in order to stay. Now that Durant is unlikely to join the Heat, they will need to do what they can to keep the displeasured franchise star from leaving. In the end, it’s hard to see Wade leaving for another team and a deal should be worked out.
