Dwyane Wade Rules Out Playing In China

Aug 12, 2018 9:43 PM

Dwyane Wade has apparently ruled out playing in China as he was posed the question on Saturday.

“Heat only," said Wade. "If I play the game of basketball this year it will be in a Miami uniform. If I don’t, I’ll be living in Miami or somewhere else probably.”

Wade said he’s in no rush to reach a decision after finishing the 17-18 season with the Heat.

“It’s no clock for me,” Wade said. “I let my agent handle the stuff he needs to handle with Pat and them. It’s not my job to be going back and forth in the meeting with them. When the time is right for both sides to make a decision on what that is, if it it’s right, if it’s wrong, whatever the case may be, I think it will be made.

“Me and UD, Pat has said obviously, we’ve been in Miami for a while and we have the ability to say if we want to continue to play this game, continue to be leaders of the organization. But there are other things that come into play that I have to talk about and I’m sure UD has to talk about on his own. When all of that is final and the decision needs to be made it will be made.

“It’s different now. We’re not sitting down trying to figure out a $100 million contract by July 8th. It’s a different situation now. We have time.”

Wade was offered a large contract in China.

Adelaide 36ers Seeking Compensation From Brooklyn For Mitch Creek

Aug 9, 2018 3:11 AM

The Adelaide 36ers of the Australian NBL have gone to court in Australia to stop Mitch Creek from signing with the Brooklyn Nets without compensation.

Creek had one year of a three-year deal left to run with the 36ers in the 2018-19 season but triggered his European/NBA out clause to join a top-level German club, Wurzberg. Wurzberg gave Creek its clearance but Adelaide claims it must get its approval as well.

"We are ensuring in the event that he gets a spot on the final roster that there is some sort of compensation (for Adelaide)," 36ers chief executive Ben Kavenagh told The Advertiser.

Former teammate Josh Childress has taken to social media pleading for the 36ers to come to their senses and allow Creek to follow his dream.

The Nets are looking at offering Creek a camp invite.

Brian Bowen Becomes First Player Signed To Australia's Next Stars Program

Aug 7, 2018 3:13 PM

Brian Bowen has signed a professional contract with the Sydney Kings in Australia.

Bowen, the No. 14 ranked recruit in ESPN's Top 100 in 2017, is the first player signed to the NBL's Next Stars program, which was launched in March.

Bowen was one of the main figures identified in the FBI's sweeping investigation into corruption in college basketball, as his family was accused of being paid $100,000 by Adidas to commit to Louisville. Bowen subsequently transferred to South Carolina and practiced with the team, but he was ruled ineligible for the 18-19 season as well.
