With rumors swirling that Dwyane Wade and the Chicago Bulls are likely headed towards a contract buyout, Wade’s former teammate and current Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem is letting Wade know that Miami would welcome him back with open arms.
Haslem recently joined the “Joe Rose Show” to send the message out to Wade:
“My advice to him is, ‘Hey, we’d love to have you but take it one step at a time, take it one step at a time,'” Haslem said. “The situation with Chicago and everything that’s going on it’s just a frustrating situation on both sides and I think he just made a decision based on frustration.”
He continued to express that Wade’s time in Chicago may very well be coming to an end:
“We kind of understand the direction Chicago is going in,” he explained. “We kind of understand the direction that Dwyane wants to go in the last couple of years of his career. The business side of things sometimes doesn’t always allow both sides to exist.”
According to ESPN‘s initial report, a contract buyout between Wade and the Bulls may still be months away, but if a buyout does take place, Wade would be able to sign with any team for a pro-rated minimum. If Haslem’s words are of any indication, it appears Wade would be more than welcome to continue his career back in Miami.
