Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade remains in the NBA rumor mill this late in the offseason. There are reports that he could leave the Bulls after they traded Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves. One of the teams expected to land him when this materializes is the Miami Heat. Wade played 13 seasons for the Heat before he left last year due to contract issues.

TMZ recently caught up with Wade and once again, he got asked about a potential return to Miami. The TMZ reporter questioned Wade regarding the statements of his ex-teammate and close friend, Udonis Haslem. Days ago, Haslem shared the desire to end his career playing alongside "The Flash." Wade responded by stating that he is under contract and cannot say anything about a possible reunion with the Heat.

From the looks of it, Wade is staying in Chicago despite the impending rebuilding process the franchise will undergo. It is rumored to be the reason why he wanted to part ways with the Bulls earlier in the offseason. However, with training camp and the 2017-18 season approaching, the chances of him leaving or re-signing with the Heat are highly unlikely.

Heat willing to welcome Wade back

Nearly two weeks ago, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported that the Heat are opening their doors to Wade. The team has conditions though if he is to return. The 35-year-old must accept the role of a bench player and should "be willing to play for Miami's $4.3 million exceptions." These could be unfavorable for the three-time NBA champion who is still one of the best shooting guards in the NBA today.

Justise Winslow staying for another season

In other Miami Heat news, Justise Winslow will be with the team for at least one more year. The Heat picked up the fourth-year option in Winslow's contract. There is another club option in his deal for the 2018-19 season. Winslow is among the promising prospects on Miami's roster. Unfortunately, in the previous season, he was limited to 18 games due to injuries. He averaged 10.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1.4 steals per contest.

In the upcoming training camp and preseason, Winslow will have to work hard and impress the coaching staff to keep the starting job at small forward. Challenging him for the role are Rodney McGruder and Josh Richardson, who both played splendidly for the Heat last season. Richardson recently agreed to a new deal with the organization that is for four years and is worth $42 million.
