Wade, 36, is still mulling whether or not to play a 16th NBA season. A report last week citing a source who has spoken to Wade claims he is inclined to return. He has said that if he does come back it will be only with the Miami Heat, the team he spent 13 years with before leaving to sign with Chicago in 2016. He returned to the Heat last season for 21 games after starting the season in Cleveland, and averaged 16.6 points per game in Miami’s five-game playoff loss to Philadelphia.

Based on his run at the gym, Wade looks ready for another year in the NBA.
