Dwyane Wade Likely to Re-up with Miami Heat

Wade’s starring role with Team USA significantly boosted his value, which will only continue to rise if he stays healthy. The feeling around the league is that Wade will sign an extension with Miami instead of opting out, but there are plenty of variables to consider — such as Wade’s prickly relationship with Heat president Pat Riley.

Don’t rule out Bosh, whom many executives believe has all but decided to opt out. In many ways, he’s a softer target than LeBron.

"You’ve got to have a reason to leave, and I think Bosh would," a rival G.M. said. "If I were Donnie, LeBron’s an obvious deal, but I think Bosh is really attractive. I’d be getting my ducks in a row on that one."
