REPORT: Heat Want Dwyane Wade To Take Bench Role For $4.5 Million

Dwyane Wade was rumored to possibly return to the Heat if he reached a buyout agreement with the Bulls. However, Miami is only reportedly interested in offering him a bench role and a $4.5 million deal. This seems pretty disrespectful as Wade is just a season removed from averaging 19 points, 4.6 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game for the Heat and helped bring the team it’s first NBA title back in 2006. Via Miami Herald:

ESPN reported recently that LeBron James’ associates believe Wade will sign with Cleveland if he reaches a buyout with the Bulls. A Wade associate told me last week that Miami and Los Angeles also would hold appeal to him.

The Heat would be interested in Wade under certain circumstances, including if he agrees to a bench role and if he would be willing to play for Miami’s $4.3 million exception.
