Miami Heat seeking D Wade signature


The Miami Heat is continuing to ramp up pressure on its superstar guard to re-sign with the team through its We Want Wade campaign.

The team has put up a billboard with the signature portion of a contract on the 79th Street Causeway hoping to capture Wade’s attention. It simply includes the dotted line with an X, Wade’s name and an arrow indicating where to sign. Check out the photo by Brentan Debysingh, Miami Heat.

If Wade does re-sign, the team is exploring having Wade actually sign the giant billboard.

The team launched the We Want Wade campaign and its accompanying website last month. Billboards and banners have been going up across “Wade County” and fans have been posting messages and videos to the site encouraging Wade to stay with the Heat. Fans can also order a We Want Wade fan kit, which includes window clings, bracelets and stickers, or download a digital version.

Wade is expected to exercise his option to become a free agent by July 1 and he has said repeatedly he would like to remain with the Heat.
