Dwyane Wade Not Interested in China, Wants to Play for Heat
Despite reports of a Chinese basketball team looked to offer Dwyane Wade a monster contract, the three-time NBA champion has no plans of leaving the NBA for Asia.
It seems like a $25-million offer from the Zhejian Golden Bulls will not be enough to convince Wade, as the 36-year old prefers either a return to the Miami Heat or subsequent retirement. According to Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press, Wade is only interested in playing for the team with which he has built his Hall of Fame worthy resume.
More Wade from Jr. NBA: "If I'm playing the game of basketball this year, it'll be in a Miami uniform." (Take note: China was never a real option for this year.)

While there is still no answer on whether Wade prefers to continue his basketball career, the 12-time All-Star has been a big part of the NBA’s Jr. Tournament over the summer, as he continues to be a great ambassador for the sport and the League itself.
Coming off his 15th NBA season, Wade averaged 11.4-points per game in a reserve role split between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat. In five playoff games, the veteran guard averaged 16.6-points per game.
