Wade, Bosh and Deng expected to lead competitive Heat team next season.
Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade took to his official Instagram page on Tuesday to announce that he would be re-signing with the franchise.
Heat team president Pat Riley later described the 11-year Heat legend as a “franchise cornerstone since the day he arrived”, and having now shown his commitment to the team he is likely to become an even more popular figure at the AA Arena.
Following on from the shock of losing LeBron James, who opted to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers last week, the Heat have been re-building over the past few days and have now re-signed both Wade and Chris Bosh.
In addition, they have re-signed Udonis Haslem, Chris Andersen and Mario Chalmers whilst adding Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger to what appears to be a strong roster that is still capable of competing in the Eastern Conference.
However, it is understood that the organisation see Luol Deng as part of the new Big three, and although they are aware that he will find it impossible to replace the numbers produced by James, he will become a vital component in the years to come with the pressure and responsibility shared across all three of the main stars.
Nevertheless, Wade re-signing is a huge boost for the organisation and they will hope that he can continue to deal with his knee struggles and lead the team forward once again.
