Dwyane Wade is reportedly set to enter his 16th season in the NBA with the Miami Heat.

Having last played for the Heat last season, Wade is currently a free agent but his future has been uncertain all summer. There were murmurs of retirement especially as the 36-year-old did not rule the prospect out.

In addition, he received lucrative offers to play in China, with the Zhejiang Golden Bulls offering him a three-year, $25 million contract in July to ply his trade in the Chinese Basketball Association.

According to Basketball Society's Brandon Robinson though, Wade will be re-signing with the Heat for the 2018/19 season.

"NBA training camp is 40 days away and this evening I’m told from a reliable NBA source that Dwyane Wade will re-sign with the Miami Heat."

Robinson adds that the same league source also mentioned the announcement should happen very soon, especially as Wade's good friend Udonis Haslem has reportedly agreed a one-year deal on Thursday to return to the Heat as well.

The Heat are currently above the NBA's salary cap, so the most Wade can reportedly be offered is a one-year, $5.3 million deal which is the mid-level taxpayer exception.

Although it does not mean much, Wade was asked Thursday night as to whether he would be retiring or returning to the Heat, but he did not give any answers.

Following the end of the playoffs in June, Wade mentioned if he was returning for another team, it would likely only be for Miami.

"We'll see. We'll see what happens," Wade said. If I decide to come back and play the game of basketball, I would love for it obviously to be in Miami. It's crazy, because you never know what happens. I never even thought I would ever leave Miami."

"At this point for me. I'm sitting here and I'm thinking and contemplating on playing the game of basketball and my only vision is I figure is in a Miami Heat uniform."

Wade left the Heat in 2016 for his hometown team the Chicago Bulls after a contractual issue with the franchise. He would join the Cleveland Cavaliers in September last year before rejoining the Heat in February.

Although a future Hall of Famer, age is certainly affecting Wade as he posted a career-low 11.4 points and 3.4 assists in the 67 combined games he played for Cavaliers and Heat last season.

In addition, he has not made the All-Star team since 2016 while the 2014/15 season was the last time he averaged 20 points in the regular season.
