Heat Offer Dwyane Wade Two-Year, $40MM Deal

With Kevin Durant no longer in play, the Heat have shifted their focus back to their own veteran star. According to Dan Le Batard (Twitter link), Miami has put a two-year, $40MM offer on the table for Dwyane Wade. The proposal, which has been confirmed by multiple outlets, includes a player option for year two.

Wade has been shopping around for other offers so far this month, unhappy with how initial talks with the Heat had played out. However, Miami has remained the favorite to sign Wade, and now the team appears to be getting a little more serious in negotiations, with Hassan Whiteside locked up and Durant headed to Golden State.

The Bucks, one of Wade’s rival suitors, have a meeting in New York lined up with the veteran guard for Wednesday, according to Charles F. Gardner of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (Twitter link). The Nuggets are also reportedly in the hunt for Wade, but the Heat would probably like to ensure that the former Finals MVP doesn’t take any meetings.

As cap expert Albert Nahmad notes (via Twitter), based on their current projected space, the Heat could offer Wade a deal worth $39MM+ and still match Tyler Johnson‘s offer sheet. If Wade wants more than that, and Miami is willing to oblige, the team would have to renounce, trade, or waive at least one other player. The Heat could also improve their offer to Wade by adding a third year.

*sigh* Just trade McRoberts and give him $25 million. If they’re going to make him take the 1 year deal again, to retain flexibility for next offseason, instead of the 3 he deserves, at least pay him what he should get. There is no reason to be messing around with this right now

I still think the Sixers should come in with a 3-4 year and overpay for Wade. Obviously nobody on the roster besides Noel is due for a significant pay raise anytime soon. So why not over pay for Wade. I’d say somewhere in the 3yr 75millio? or 4yrs 85million. The team still needs to get to the cap floor. Adding Wade provides veteran leadership from a superstar to mentor a young Ben Simmons.

Why would Wade want to sign somewhere he doesn’t have a chance of winning a title at? If he signs a 3/4 year deal he will make sure it’s somewhere they have a shot to win since this will be his last go round

Let Wade go to Celtics or Thunder or even CAVS or Magic or MAVS.

I’d like the Celtics but Thunder just got oladipo and cavs would have to find some more money

Cavs have all kinds of money. That’s not the issue. The issue with the Cavs is cap
Space or lack there of. They only have one mid level and veterans minimum.
