Newly acquired Cavaliers guard Dwyane Wade said on Wednesday he would like to end his career as a member of the Miami Heat.
Wade listed some different possibilities:
“Miami, the door’s always unlocked. One day I want to retire in a Miami Heat jersey. I don’t know how that will happen, but I definitely want to make sure that when I decide to hang it up, that jersey is on. Whether it’s being back there or signing a one-day deal like Paul Pierce [with the Boston Celtics], I want to make sure that I go out the way I came in.”
Officially, Wade signed a one-year, $2.3 million deal with the Cavs on Wednesday after the Chicago Bulls bought him out.
Wade will rejoin LeBron James in Cleveland after they combined to win a pair of championships together in Miami.
The 35-year-old spent the first 13 seasons of his NBA career with the Heat before signing with his hometown Bulls last offseason.
During his time in Miami, Wade was named an All-Star 12 times, won three championships and earned the 2005-06 Finals MVP.
