According to ESPN they are working on deal which could be done today.

@WindhorstESPN: Dwyane Wade will re-sign with Heat & he took another pay cut to help team add talent: http://t.co/nikX2yyFi5

I like how he "took" a pay cut and was not told hell no we will not pay you 20 million a year to play 50 games a season

Wade should change his moniker from "Flash" to "Half-Man, Half a Season"

15 million was a pay cut?

As a Bulls fan who sincerely dislikes Wade, I can't argue with this.

Next season you could still likely justify this one - even if he misses 30 games or so he can still bring it at times, his play hasn't totally dropped off yet. It's certainly nowhere near as bad as the Kobe contract at least!

Still, I don't think you'll be able to say the same thing in four years time. This really has the look of an ugly contract down the road if the $15 mil/season is accurate.

Getting 15 million for playing half a season isnt being loyal.
And getting to play next to Lebron for 4 seasons isnt being loyal

There will always be haters, but if he really opted out of 2yrs/$42M, and instead signed for 2yrs/$34M, then Arison needs to start construction of his statue in front of AAA right now.

At least he was willing to accept a pay cut as opposed to Kobe limiting the Lakers for the next 2 seasons
I still say he LOST a ton of money just opting in and hoping LeBron would come back - it's rare to have players remain on the same team for their careers so it's good for Wade to at least have a chance to retire a Heat.

i wont argue u on dirk because dirk is right there with wade in the category but how is wade not loyal for playing with lebron?

the only reason lebron came to town 4 years ago is because wade and bosh both constructed deals allowing the heat space to even add lebron, remember wade and bosh committed way before lebron even made a choice in 2010

Im sure Wade Bosh and Lebron had that plan in their head for a while. You are crazy if you think they didn't.
Im not saying Wade is unloyal for playing with Lebron, but he doesnt have an increase in loyalty for doing it.

On a 2 year deal though does it really matter what the salary is?

No matter what he took the heat are still maxed on space this year and probably next yr and wade opted out of 42 million for the sole purpose of giving the heat cap room to improve the team. He needed to be taken care of

If Gordon Hayward, Chandler Parsons, etc... is worth $15M, then Wade is worth more.
Furthermore Wade has always been better than Rose. There has never been any point that he has ever been a better player, not even in 2011. And through the past 3 years of injury, Wade has been injured less and performed better, period.

rose deserves all the hate he gets

he milked injuries all throughout the lockout shortened year and then was out of shape for the playoffs and tore his acl as a result

then he recovers fully from the acl but sits out another 4 months because he knew his team had no shot to beat miami in the playoffs (all while his teamates were all injured badly yet ran out there every night that playoff season)

then this year he gets hurt and chooses a more complicated procedure to miss the season because he knew the bulls wernt going anywhere once more

Oh is Riley/Arison taking care of their own and #1 superstar player in HEAT history bothersome somehow to some of you? Wade opted out of his remaining 2 year, 42M deal to take 34M...and y'all are salty, saying the HEAT overpayed...Well perhaps, but considering he is being rewarded for his loyalty and especially being reimbursed some of the money he opted out of to help the team remain relevant, especially in light of the fact they lost the best player in a generation. Wade also sacrificed a longer deal to give the HEAT cap space in 2016. How on Earth is bothersome to some, unless your just being an ignorant, childish hater? These comments are just so damn naive...

Given his health issues he doesn't appear to be worth 17M purely from a business/player-production perspective, but this is where the loyalty factor comes in.

Considering what he has contributed to this organization's succes (including his part in bringing Lebron in) this is a mutual no-brainer. This is the right thing to do and it is for just two years which I sort of view as salvation years anyway. Have modest expectations and let's see what they can do now that everybody has to step up. It wouldn't surprise me at all if this team does a lot better than a lot of these haters are predicting right now.

Wade, Bosh, and Spoelstra have a lot to prove. I love that they didn't abandon ship when Lebron left. This is gonna be interesting to see how they play. If Wade is fully healthy, the Heat could still come out of the East. I've always thought people have overrated the Heat's supporting cast around Lebron... particularly Wade and Bosh.

They are a very similar team minus Lebron, plus Deng, Mcbob, and Granger. Obviously a huge downgrade there, but at least they added some depth and now we will get to see what Wade and Bosh can do with Lebron.

I think Miami has done everything they can realistically do to remain competitive in the East without Lebron. Adding a big man would help, but who is out there? I think they did a good job though and I think they're team is underrated right now. Top 4 team in the East for sure. I don't know if they'll get past the 2nd round, but in the East it is kind of wide open.

No amen to that from me. One player is a top 50 talent in the history of the NBA but isn't capable of staying healthy for a full season and is rapidly declining. The other is a young player who has shown the tools to be an all star presently and in the distant future.

How exactly did he put together a team with duct tape? He re-signed everyone besides Lebron to re-structure the heat's cap to put them in amazing position for 2016 and put together a top 4-5 team in the east.

This heat team is still going to be very good next year and it is all because of how well Riley recovered from losing Lebron.

People are overreacting to Wade's last 3 games but the heat were just outclassed in the finals and people still need to realize that Wade has quite a bit left if you saw him this past season and Wade didn't miss games last year due to injury, he missed games because the team held him out because the regular season was meaningless last year. It has been widely reported already that he wanted to play in a lot of the games the team held him out of last year.

First of all Wade will average 22 to 23 points a game without Lebron. He took a backseat last year and this year he will be relied upon heavily. I see the Heat easily making the playoffs and having the ability to go past one round at-least. Now if Wade declines inspite of lebron's departure than signing him to a 5 year deal may be a disaster for he Heat. The heat should bid on Boozer and offer up a 7 million bid. The number is high because at that that bid they will easily win the Boozer bidding. Now if you have D-wade Luol Deng, Bosh and Boozer, this would make the heat interesting.

i don't think teams over the cap are allowed to bid, they can sign him though if he clears waivers.

The Heat are not over the Cap, Deng's 10 million Bosh 22 million and Wades 17 million is 49 million along with their 6 million to other players like Josh Mc. Roberts and Danny Granger, rookies etc. does not put them near the Salary Cap of 63 million.

Yes they are. You are wrong and don't know what you are talking about.

Wade 17
Bosh 22
Deng 10
MCroberts 5.7
Cole 2
Granger 2.7
Haslem 2.7
Chalmers 4
Andersen 5

These might not be their official cap charges but the heat are now out of cap space.

They really need for Boozer to clear amnesty waivers because if he does he will definitely sign here but its unlikely he will get through.

If he does though and they can have a starting lineup of

Chalmers
Wade
Deng
Boozer
Bosh

on top of that off the bench they would have Cole, Birdman, Mcroberts, Granger, Ennis, Napier, Haslem, and then 2-3 other roster spots that is a contender in the East.

I'll be put on record now... I don't want Boozer. Bosh is great at pick and roll defense, we need someone to defend on post ups. Birdman is fine off the bench, and maybe even Haslem in some limited minutes. But the team needs better defense than a Carlos Boozer.

Jesus Christ all I got from this is heat fans are still in denial that Lebron left their sorry non loyal *****. And that they can think of nothing better than pointing out Derrick rose. Honestly that's just unbelievable to me. Saying rose faked **** and then claiming a guy who is near 35 and has a body made of glass is worth his 34 million. I don't give a flying **** how much money wade opted out of. He's worth NOWHERE near what he's getting paid. He is a sixth man that could play 25 mins a night for the rest of his career. Give it a rest Miami homers. Go cry in a hole

First off who is in denial over LeBron leaving? What's there to be in denial about? He is gone so what the team moves on. All I got out of your comment was your disdain for Wade nothing more. You say Wade has a body of glass but has played more than a young Rose in the last 2 years. I could care less about Rose in general he is irrelevant until I see him put up All-star numbers for a full season.

ok this is what Im looking at if pacers resign lance and rose is healthy
1.Pacers
2.Cavs
3.Bulls
4.heat
5.wizards
6.Raptors
7.Nets
8.Atlanta

ALL players are healthy
1vs8 pacers over atlanta
2vs7 cavs over nets, but this will go either way I can see an upset here
3vs6 bulls over raptors
4vs5 heat over wizards

1vs4 heat over pacers- Heat are much deeper than pacers and can still put deng on paul . Wade will go off
2vs3 bulls over cavs- those bigman will eat up the cavs . Sorry cavs not your year.

3vs4 bulls over heat. With a healthy rose I don't see the heat beating the bulls . Unless wades playing like 06-09

People really got so butthurt when the Heat conserved Wade last year. Like they where paying his salary or something. That was the Heats gameplan going into the season, and it worked because he looked great in the first 3 rounds and they made yet another Finals.

Then the Spurs run circles around them and blow them off the floor and its back to crying about Wade missing games again. As if him playing the whole season would've stopped the Spurs from shooting 90% in a quarter.

People only think about the last thing they saw. Not at what the team did as a whole last season. It's sad that people like play ignorant to the fact and complain about it at all. Everyone knew what the HEAT were doing with Wade. People that like to complain will always complain nothing can change that. Spurs just ate us period. They were a machine and congrats to them.

1 of 3 things.

Either he really has only 2 yrs left in him before he retires.

Or, make a run at LeBron again in 2016 if he decides to bolt Cleveland again due to the pressure.

Umm no... Dirk is more loyal, any of the big three is more loyal.

Getting 15 million for playing half a season isnt being loyal.
And getting to play next to Lebron for 4 seasons isnt being loyal

i wont argue u on dirk because dirk is right there with wade in the category but how is wade not loyal for playing with lebron?

the only reason lebron came to town 4 years ago is because wade and bosh both constructed deals allowing the heat space to even add lebron, remember wade and bosh committed way before lebron even made a choice in 2010

This made me laugh so hard... LOL

Yes, opt'ing out of a contract that would have paid him 3x more than his worth for one that is only 2x what is worth allowed the Heat to get solid players this FA; McRoberts, Deng, and Granger.

edit: Scratch that, the Heat could have still have afforded to give Wade what was left on the contract he opt'ed out of, while still signing McRoberts, Deng, and Granger. I'm not sure what is gained by Wade's opting out other than saving the owner money and making less money for himself.

More like you refused to listen to the HEAT fans from before July 8, 2010 who the real fans were and who the LeBron fans were. You grouped them all as the same. As a Lakers fan you should be fully familiar with the concept of "player fans" that don't care about the franchise.

As for the topic at hand, Wade officially signed a 2yr/$31.1M contract. Great contract for the HEAT. LeBron owes him $11M.

It's great:

a.) It's 11M less than what he opted out of.
b.) It's only a 2 year deal (Player option after year 1), allowing the Heat to be active in 2015 and especially in 2016 FA.

Fair enough.

a.) So the owner saves $5.5 million for 1, possibly 2 years (it's a given that Wade could have opt'd in his contract and they still could have signed the players they did).
b.) His original 2010 contract gave him a 4th year opt out and a final year opt out option... so that would have happened anyways

End result: Owner richer, Wade poorer, same free agents signed regardless of Wade opt'ing in or out.

If I'm wrong (which I am sometimes), I apologize. Is anything I said wrong?

I don't know the official stat but I know Dwyane Wade was one of the best shooters in the league the past year. He just isn't a 3 point shooter so thats why the fit with Lebron was never great but that doesnt mean Dwyane Wade has "no semblance of a perimeter game" because that just means you are making stuff up.

Also he didn't play that many games last regular season because they were resting him, not because he was injured. There were many times wade could have and wanted to play but they held him out because the regular season for the heat the last few years were meaningless.

And his play obviously has declined but he is still a great player. He was fantastic last year up until the last 3 games of the finals.

How do you think he'll perform next year without other teams needing to game plan against LeBron? Can Bosh become so unstoppable in the paint that Wade will be free to shoot at will?
