Dwyane Wade May Sign Extension this Summer

Days after Heat president Pat Riley said his biggest nightmare is losing Dwyane Wade to 2010 free agency, Wade said he might consider ending his bosses sleepless nights a year early.

Under the league’s current salary structure, Wade is eligible to sign a contract extension on July 1 that could add another four years and about $86 million onto the two seasons and $33 million that will be left after this season.


Wade said he hasn’t given much thought to signing an extension this summer, but wouldn’t rule it out.

”When the time comes and I have to sit down at the end of the season and think about it, I will,” Wade said. ”I’m not there yet. Who knows where things are going to be in two years? You focus on now.”
