Dwyane Wade: I’m Not Going to NY

Dwyane Wade disputed a report in Newsday (N.Y.) that he would love to play for the Knicks and said he has a hunch he will remain with the Heat after he can opt out of his contract in summer 2010. ”That’s my goal,” Wade said, indicating he would love to retire as a Heat player.

The Newsday story ”was reported wrong,” Wade said Friday. ”When they asked me about [Knicks coach] Mike D’Antoni, I said when I played with him in the Olympics, if it was between him and Nate McMillan, I love being on the court with him. Miami is where I want to be. If I say I like a city, people will say I want to be playing in that city. And that doesn’t mean that at all.”
