NBA: Wade not yet planning meetings with free agents
MIAMI — Dwyane Wade is still planning to talk to numerous players before deciding whether or not to re-sign with the Miami Heat.
A full-fledged summit of stars, however, isn't being planned.
Wade's agent, Henry Thomas, said Thursday that while the 2006 NBA finals MVP could talk with LeBron James, Chris Bosh and others before the July 1 start to free agency, no formal sit-down sessions among the headliners of this summer's class are scheduled.
In interviews Wednesday and Thursday with the Chicago Tribune and South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Wade reiterated he will do much homework this summer, and said he and other stars may get together for strategy sessions.
If that happens, Thomas says those chats will be informal.
