Udonis Haslem wants Dwyane Wade to finish his career at Miami Heat

Most people have come to accept that Dwyane Wade will not the entire season with the Chicago Bulls. It's widely accepted that it's a matter of 'when' and not 'if' because the Bulls are going through a rebuilding stage which he won't be a part of.

When he does eventually part ways, he will become an unrestricted free agent, meaning he can go wherever he wants, but then it's a matter of if that team shares an interest in him as well.

LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly wants him to come to Cleveland, and considering they have been to the last three Finals, it provides Wade with the best opportunity to get another ring before retirement, so they're the current favourites to land him. The two played with each other before at the Miami Heat.

However, Udonis Haslem, who is currently still with the Heat and was part of those championship-winning teams with LeBron and Wade in 2012 and 2013, as well as winning a single championship with Dwyane in 2006, wants him to come back to Miami.

Haslem told the Palm Beach Post: “I would love to have him back, everybody knows that. Not only is he a great competitor, great teammate I learned a lot from but also a friend of mine, I consider him a brother.

“I just want Dwyane to be happy. This is the last lap for us both. We deserve to finish it the right way. Whatever makes him happy finishing his career. … hopefully it’s in Miami. I would love for it to be Miami. I want him to finish it right and have no regrets….

“We talked about finishing our careers together,” Haslem said. “We really want it to be the case. Plans change. So if it doesn’t happen it doesn’t put any strain on our relationship but it’s still a goal of mine. Hopefully we can end it that way.”

Unlike the Cavaliers, the Heat has space in order to accommodate Wade, but that championship chase could be what stops him from going south again since they haven't been to the NBA Finals since the shooting guard's first run with the team. Still, there's no harm in trying.
