Now that he’s back with the Miami HeatDwyane Wade says there will be no other stops in his NBA career.

“This is it for me, guys. I’m going to stay here until I decide to hang it up,” Wade told NBA TV’s Grant Hill on Friday night. “This is home, and I’m so happy to be back.”

After a season-and-a-half detour through the city of his birth with the Chicago Bulls, and 46 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Wade was traded back to the Heat on Thursday for a future second-round pick. He received a thunderous ovation upon his return to American Airlines Arena on Friday, scoring three points in a Miami win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Wade is as synonymous with the Heat as any player in franchise history, and judging by he and his wife Gabrielle Union’s happiness at the return, it’s clear they never wanted to leave South Florida.

Wade is currently on a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum of $2.3 million. The 36-year-old has slowed over the last few seasons, but can still be productive offensively. An impasse with team president Pat Riley over a new deal drove Wade away from the Heat in 2016.
