Dwyane Wade says Heat’s Big Three haven’t decided on future


Miami Heat teammates Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh have not decided on their future past this season.

The three met to make their free agent decision in 2010 and could meet again before their June 30 opt-out deadlines, which allows them to leave in 2014, 2015 or 2016.

“I’m at a position where I don’t really have to worry about it,” Wade said in an upcoming issue of ESPN The Magazine. “I’ve been with the same organization for now 11 years. We’ve won multiple championships, so it’s no reason where I need to think about that yet. I’m not at a point where we are a bad team and I need to think about the future so right now I’m really focused on just enjoying this team, enjoying our quest to try to ‘Three-peat.’ And when the season is over, and whatever happens, then I will sit down and I will sit down with Chris and I will sit down with Bron and I will sit down and make the best decision for myself and my family.”

Wade, who took a pay cut and took less than a max deal, is due $42 million over the next two years.

“When we sat down and we signed our deals and all of us made sure we had an opt out in that fourth year, that was our option, so the option is there and you would hope that someone wants to be able to use their option as a player,” Wade said:

“As players, you only have so much time and you only have so many moments where you have the ability to control your own fate, so it’s not a bad thing at all if that’s what someone is thinking. I haven’t had that conversation with Chris. I haven’t had that conversation with Bron,” he added.
