(MIAMI) — The Miami Heat has re-signed guard Dwyane Wade, the team announced on Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Dwyane has been the franchise cornerstone for this team since the day he arrived 11 years ago,” Heat president Pat Riley said in a statement. “He has shown his commitment to the Heat many times over the course of his career and has always been willing to sacrifice in order to help build this team into a champion. This time is no different. I am ecstatic to have him back in the fold and I am confident that Dwyane, as always, will be leading this team as we look to contend for NBA Championships.”
Miami originally selected Wade out of Marquette with the fifth overall pick in the 2003 NBA draft. In 11 seasons with the Heat, Wade has averaged 24.3 points, 6.0 assists, 5.0 rebounds per game. The 10-time All-Star has won three NBA championships during his tenure.
The Heat also announced on Tuesday the signing of free agent forward Luol Deng.
