Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade is looking for one final big contract of his career and he is reportedly looking for a two-year $50 million contract with a possible guaranteed third-year option. According to the latest NBA rumors, the Denver Nuggets are ready to offer Wade a two-year deal worth more than $50 million.
Wade has spent his entire career in Miami and he was expecting a great offer from the Heat. However, it was the opposite as Miami offered him a deal with an annual salary of less than $10 million. The offer seems to have offended Wade and it has opened up talks with other teams.
Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the 34-year-old guard will meet with Nuggets officials on Wednesday in New York City. Denver is ready to offer him what he wants, a two-year, $50 million deal and possibly more.
But it should be noted that the altitude in Denver could be a big factor for a player like Wade, who recently passed his prime. Nonetheless, he is a valuable addition to the young Nuggets team that is slowly moving up the ladder of the Western Conference.
Other teams that are rumored to be interested in signing Wade include the Heat, Chicago Bulls, Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers. According to Hoops Rumors, Miami is ready to give their superstar what he wants, including a player option for the third year.
The three-time NBA champion has canceled a meeting with the Bucks and other teams but they were not named. Many are expecting him to re-sign with the Heat but the Nuggets might convince him to leave for more money.
For the Cavaliers fans hoping to they can sign Wade to counter the KD signing by the Golden State Warriors, LeBron James is not recruiting his former Heat teammate to Cleveland. According to CBS Sports, Wade is not willing to sign a league minimum deal with the Cavaliers.
