On Tuesday, Miami Heat fans got the news that they’ve been waiting for all summer when it was first reported that Dwyane Wade was getting close to signing a one-year deal to return for the 2018-19 season.

Less than 24 hours later, Wade himself took to Twitter to express his opinion of the report.

Last week, Wade spoke out about his future in the NBA saying that he has not yet decided whether or not he will return for another season. He did say, however, that if he does play basketball again, it will be with the Heat.
Hopefully Wade’s tweet is just about the recent report and not about a potential return. Though Wade is well past his prime by now, his presence on the court for the second half of last season was a sight to behold for Heat fans everywhere. On several occasions, the three-time NBA champ was able to reclaim some of the brilliance that has made him one of the most feared shooting guards in the league earlier in his career.
With the 2018-19 season quickly approaching, Wade will have to make a decision regarding his future. Considering this tweet, it might be best for fans to wait to celebrate until they hear the news from Wade himself.
