Dwyane Wade is prepared to consider offers from rival teams after initial contract discussions with the Miami Heat on a new contract have failed to produce common ground.
The Heat and Wade had several contentious weeks last year before they agreed on a one-year, $20 million deal for this past season.
At the end of the season, Wade said he hoped negotiations with the Heat would go more smoothly this summer.
"I hope that everything is quiet and works out the way I want it to," Wade said. "But I have no control over that, as much as people might think. It's a lot of moving parts in free agency. I'm not worried about it."
Miami has approximately $40 million in cap space and must use it to re-sign Hassan Whiteside as they don't earn his full Bird rights.
