Latest On Dwyane Wade

10:03pm: Wade has a meeting scheduled on Wednesday with Nuggets officials that will take place in New York, Wojnarowski tweets.

7:34pm: The Nuggets have offered Wade a contract worth more than $50MM over two years, Marc Stein of ESPN.com tweets. Denver is holding out hope that the veteran shooting guard will accept its bid, the scribe adds.

12:37pm: Wade’s representatives have told teams that their client is seeking a two-year, $50MM contract, reports Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, adding that the Nuggets and Bulls continue to stay in touch with Wade, who is also talking to the Heat. Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, meanwhile, reports that the veteran star is prioritizing a guaranteed third year in contract talks. Either way, it sounds like a two-year, $40MM offer won’t get it done.

The Bucks currently aren’t involved in the bidding for Wade, and while there have been rumors about the Cavs, there’s no traction between Wade and Cleveland at this point, according to Windhorst. Per Wojnarowski, the Bulls and Wade have talked about setting up a face-to-face meeting but nothing has been scheduled.

As for the Heat, Ira Winderman of The South Florida Sun Sentinel tweets that they seem to want to hold firm on two years for Wade, even though they may be willing to include a player option and do another two-year deal next summer.

10:58am: Dwyane Wade has canceled a previously-scheduled Wednesday meeting with the Bucks, according to ESPN’s Zach Lowe (Twitter link). Lowe’s report follows up on a tweet from ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, which suggests that Wade has canceled more than one free agent meeting. However, it’s not clear what other team(s) had been set to meet with the veteran guard.

Despite the fact that Wade played his college ball at Marquette, it always seemed like a long shot that he’d seriously consider signing with the Bucks this offseason after spending his entire career in Miami. After Kevin Durant opted not to sign with the Heat, Miami reportedly increased its offer to Wade to two years and $40MM, getting a little more serious about negotiations with the former Finals MVP. Although he didn’t accept that offer, Wade’s decision to cancel his meeting with the Bucks may hint that he and the Heat are moving closer to finding common ground.

Outside of Milwaukee and Miami, several teams have been linked to Wade since free agency began, including the Nuggets, Knicks, Bulls, and Mavericks. Of those teams, only Denver still had the cap space to pursue Wade. There has also been speculation that the Cavaliers could have interest in LeBron James‘ former teammate, though those whispers have been unsubstantiated. Even if Cleveland did explore that possibility, the team would have to trade multiple contracts in order to be able to offer Wade a decent salary.

Austin Carr’s son is saying D. Wade is going to Cleveland for sure, according to Facebook top trends. So, the trust in that source has got to be 100000000%

Wade is nothing more than a name now. He’ll be 35 in January. The money Miami is offering is far more than he is worth and he should just accept it. They’re nuts for offering him that much.

Maybe you should actually watch some games or look at some box scores. Just because these guys don’t play in/for Philly doesn’t mean they’re trash. Wade is better than more than half of the Sixers’ roster. The jury’s still out on Simmons since he hasn’t played a game yet, but Wade is better than Noel/Okafor who would be the next best guys on the Sixers.

Exactly. Wade was better than most superstars in the post season this year. Numbers don’t lie. JT is only 19 years old, so he has no logic.

He was good in the playoffs. But he is old. Buyer beware. I’d stay away if I was a contender, a borderline playoff team, or a rebuilding team. His good years are long gone. Some one at his age and skill level should not be paid near as much as he is seeking, even in this crazy market.

Don’t “contenders, borderline playoff teams, and rebuilding teams” make up everyone? So you’re saying no one should sign him? LOL

Wouldnt be shocked if they dump Love to a team desperate for a superstar like the Sixers or LA. Free up cap space enough to bring in Wade.

Why in the world would Cleveland do that? In what universe does that make sense?

Don’t know of any universe where going to Cleveland would make sense. The money being offered at this stage as well too. But he isn’t going to play for mediocre money either.

I’m going to put this out there again. It been reporter was want 25,million a year. And with Durant signing with warriors . And it been also reported that if thunder can’t sign Westbrook they trade him . Fact that he like to go home to la. And with James , paul and wade being close friend and would like to play together . So if you put two to two together . You can see scenario where this can happen .Here is my trade again Clippers get love and Westbrook ( love lives in la to) Cavs, get paul… Read more »

Hey fella. This trade just might change the face of the UNIVERSE!! I would definitely trade away Kyrie Ivring and Kevin Love, for Chris Paul, who is like Irving but older and not as good, and Brice Johnson, who probably won’t even make the Clippers team because who the heck is Brice Johnson? Oh wait, I forgot though, the end game would be to sign Dwayne Wade. Because he’s for sure going to be a better investment than Irving & Love. Love it! *clap clap clap*

I’m surprised the Wizards don’t somehow sneak into this trade and give Gortat, Gooden, a couple of future firsts, plus a free tour of the White House for Griffin, Cousins, Steph Curry, Michael Jordan, and Wilt Chamberlain.

Unsubstantiated? Austin Carrs son is pretty close to the organization. So is the private jet company James, Wade, and Gilbert were on
