Wade stays with Heat

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Af­ter 12 years with the Mi­ami Heat, Dwyane Wade needed a re­minder of how much the fran­chise val­ued him.

Once he found out, any chance of him leav­ing van­ished.

Wade ac­cepted a $20 mil­lion, one-year deal on Thurs­day to stay with the Heat next sea­son, end­ing his latest foray into free agency and wrap­ping up a weeks-long saga that had him se­ri­ously won­der­ing about leav­ing for the first time. A pair of con­ver­sa­tions, first with Heat CEO Nick Ari­son and then another with man­ag­ing gen­eral part­ner Micky Ari­son, re­minded Wade of what he meant to the team and from there it was a mat­ter of just mak­ing num­bers work.
