Since the end of 2017-18 NBA season, Dwyane Wade has only given limited information about his NBA future. The 36-year-old shooting guard remains undecided whether he will consider playing for another season or permanently end his NBA career.
When asked for an update on whether he will retire or not, Dwyane Wade told reporters "in due time" and "time will tell." However, Wade revealed that his family will play a major role in his decision.
"My son is a junior in high school right now," Wade said of his 16-year-old son Zaire, via ESPN. "Every decision at this point, especially in a professional athlete's career, at 36 years old, a lot of it surrounds around their families and what is best for their family. So I am really invested into making sure that my sons can have every tool that they need to be able to succeed at this game of basketball and game of life."
If he decides to play for another season, there is only one NBA team Dwyane Wade will consider playing -- the Miami Heat. Heat President Pat Riley has revealed their desire to bring Wade back, believing the veteran shooting guard can still be a reliable contributor to the team. However, Riley said that they will be patiently waiting for Wade to make a decision. If Wade agrees to re-sign with the Heat, they could offer him the $5.3 million exception or the $2.4 million veteran minimum.
