Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade said he will worry about his possible free agency next month. Wade can opt out of his 2-year, $31 million contract at the end of June.
"Well, listen, it's summer time," Wade said, according to the Sun-Sentinel. "So when summer time and free agency [come together], it's going to be a lot of talk. And right now, I'm glad that the Finals is going and we're here.
"And we'll worry about that in July. Right now, we're going to focus on these Finals.”
The Miami Herald reported last month that Wade would prefer to stay with the Heat but would leave the team if contract negotiation differences between both sides are not resolved.
Wade would enter the final year of a two-year, $31 million contract and is scheduled to make $16.1 million next season. He has the choice to opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent.
The 33-year-old, 11-time All-Star has spent his entire 12-year career with the Heat.
Wade averaged 21.5 points, 4.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 62 games this season.
