Wade elects to become free agent, may leave Heat

MIAMI (AP) The relationship between Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat is about to be tested like never before, and the most accomplished player in franchise history may soon have a new home.

Wade will become a free agent Wednesday, electing to pass on a $16.1 million option for next season and see what he's worth on the open market. His decision was announced Monday afternoon by a spokesperson in a 61-word press release, after both Wade and his agent Henry Thomas did not respond to requests for comment.

Wade played for all three of Miami's NBA championship teams. He's been an All-Star in 11 of his 12 seasons, and is Miami's all-time leader in plenty of categories including games, points, assists and steals.
