Dwyane Wade: I’m Not Being Traded

Wade even said he and Heat president Pat Riley have spoken about the topic and to ensure that both remain driven by the same goal — rebuilding Miami into a contender once again.

"I don’t worry about that kind of stuff," Wade said in Chicago, where he was holding his annual basketball camp for children. "I never understood why people even worry about it because it is uncontrollable. Your name is going to come up. Things are going to be said. It’s not a bad thing. That means you’re wanted somewhere or it means people think highly of you. I just laugh at it."

There’s been considerable intrigue about the Bulls and Heat in recent weeks, since they hold the No. 1 and No. 2 picks, respectively, in the June 26 NBA draft. [ESPN]
