Dwyane Wade doesn't rule out return to Miami Heat

Dwyane Wade may be a Chicago Bull now, but that doesn't mean he'll necessarily retire as one.

During an interview with Sports Illustrated's Rohan Nadkarni, the former Finals MVP did not rule out a return to the Miami Heat—although he claims he's happy where he is now:

"RN: Will you ever play another game for the Miami Heat?

Wade: I don't know. I never thought I would not be there. At this point in my career, I've been asked that, and it's not a focus of mine. I'm happy where I am. I gave Miami everything I had for 13 years. The years I have left, hopefully I can give as much to Chicago. You never know what the future holds so you never want to say yes or no. Anything is possible. But, I'm cool right now. I'm good."

After feeling disrespected by the Heat during contract negotiations, Wade decided to take his talents to his hometown of Chicago. The 34-year-old signed a two-year, $47 million deal that will keep him in Chicago until the age of 36.

Two years is a long time in the NBA. While Wade and the Heat organization may not have been on the best of terms over the summer, a whole lot can change by 2018—especially if the Bulls don't contend in that time frame.
