Dwyane Wade Cancels Free Agent Meetings

Jul 5, 2016 11:31 AM

Dwyane Wade has canceled some of the free agent meetings he had scheduled this week.

Wade and the Miami Heat continue to discuss a new contract. Wade was reportedly offered a two-year, $40 million deal on Monday. Wade has also been linked to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Wade had been scheduled to meet with the Milwaukee Bucks and Denver Nuggets.

Dan Le Batard shed additional light on the situation.

“The problems are real," Le Batard said on ESPN Radio Tuesday. “It’s not something we’re soap-opera manufacturing because we love it. The relationship has never been in a more dangerous place when you consider Golden State going to get Durant with all their players to recruit him and you consider the Spurs going with LaMarcus Aldridge and Pat Riley couldn’t go with Dwyane Wade and Dwyane Wade’s camp leaked before the meeting something that played defense against what the Miami Heat was trying to do in that meeting… but he was in no way helping the franchise with the recruitment of Durant in any way, didn’t make a public comment about wanting Durant. Didn’t reach out in private. Somewhere along the line here and I don’t know how this happened and I don’t know why it happened but somewhere along the line there’s a trust fracture here.

“Dwyane Wade clearly doesn’t trust the Miami Heat to give him X number of million on the front end with the bird rights they can give him at the end of the contract — the parachute of one year, $30 million, $40 million, $50 million — he clearly doesn’t trust them to do that…”
