Chicago Bulls shooting guard Dwyane Wade is in no hurry to decide where he will play next year.

The guard signed a two-year deal with the Bulls last summer, with the second year being a player option. After more than a decade spent with the Miami Heat, the Chicago native decided to represent another NBA franchise.

The season for Chicago came to an end in the first-round of the NBA playoffs. The Boston Celtics overcame a 0-2 deficit to defeat the Bulls in what turned out to be a six-game series 4-2. The 2006 NBA Finals MVP averaged 18.3 points on 43.4 field goal percentage during the regular season.

His numbers dropped in the postseason -- 15 points on 37.2 percentage from the field.

''That’s far away,'' Wade said when asked about his player option, as transcribed by Shams Charania from The Vertical. ''I have time.''

Wade knows how it feels to be an NBA champion

Dwyane Wade is a three-time NBA champion, having won the title with the Heat in 2006, 2012 and 2013.

It was clear from the beginning of the season that making it all the way with Chicago this year was a long shot. It would be a tough task for the Bulls to make a roster which would be among the top favorites next year to go all the way. The 35-year-old says he has more that one option heading into the offseason.

''I have a great luxury where I don't have to ring-chase, but I can,'' Wade said, according to Sean Highkin of The Athletic Chicago.

''Or I can be a part of passing down my knowledge. Either way.''

Bulls stars to have a meeting

Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler will be meeting face-to-face to discuss their future in Chicago.

Though 2015 Most Improved Player of the Year Butler still has a couple of more years left on his contract with the Bulls, he could be leaving the city.

During this past NBA trade deadline and last year's NBA draft, the Bulls were exploring their options when it comes to trading their star small forward.

Chicago's front office has a decision to make in which direction they want to go. Keeping Butler and building around him remains a possibility for the Windy City franchise.

It remains to be seen will the Bulls decide to move on from Wade and Butler, and have a fresh new start.

Butler backs up his teammate

Jimmy Butler said ''of course'' when asked if he prefers Chicago keeping their starting point guard Rajon Rondo on their roster. Rondo has just concluded his first year with the Bulls, averaging 7.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game during the regular season. He was playing much better in the playoffs, posting 11.5 points and 10 assists in two games he played against the Celtics. Chicago has to decide by June 30 will they fully guarantee Rondo's $13.4 million contract.

''The way he plays the game, getting everyone involved, I love playing with him and D-Wade,'' Butler added.
