Report: Dwyane Wade to Return to HEAT for Final Season

Dwyane Wade looked into the camera, stood alone in the middle of a darkened room and talked for 10 minutes. He struggled with his words at times, unable to control his emotions. He wept.

And finally, he made what he called the hardest decision of his life.

One more season.

Retirement needs to wait a little bit longer for Wade, who announced Sunday night in a video taped earlier in the day that he’s returning to the Miami Heat for a 16th and final NBA season. He basically spent the entirety of the past four months weighing his options, and retirement — even just a few days ago — was an extremely real possibility in his mind.

“I’ve always did things my way,” said Wade, who is expected to sign a $2.4 million, one-year deal later this week. “Whether they’ve good or whether they’ve been bad, I got here because I’ve done things the way that I feel is right for me and right for my family. And what I feel is right … I feel it’s right to ask you guys to join me for one last dance, for one last season.

A three-team deal that would have sent Trevor Ariza to the Washington Wizards and Kelly Oubre to the Memphis Grizzlies is dead over which Brooks — MarShon or Dillon — the Phoenix Suns had believed they were getting, league sources said.

The Grizzlies and Suns didn’t communicate directly on the trade, using Washington as a conduit in coordinating the three-team deal. Washington believes it was told Dillon Brooks in conversations with Memphis, sources said. The Grizzlies insist they told Washington it was MarShon.

Memphis would not put Dillon Brooks in the trade, and in the end, the agreement was called off.

Jabari Parker won’t be with the Bulls next season.

Heck, he might not be with them much longer. The Bulls, according to sources, have engaged in trade talks with several teams regarding Parker, who fell out of new coach Jim Boylen’s rotation Thursday.

There’s considerable interest in Parker, 23, who remains a versatile scorer. Finding the right match financially is the obstacle that needs to be cleared, but there’s motivation to get a deal done.
