Dwyane Wade is still unsure if he will play next season. But, he may be moving closer to making a decision.

The 36-year-old guard seems “inclined to play” in 2018-19, according to a report from the Miami Herald. Wade, however, is still considering retirement, the report says.

Wade said earlier this month he would play for Miami if he returned to the court next season.

Wade spent the first 13 seasons of his career with the Heat, winning three championships. He played for the Bulls in 2016 and signed a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Cavaliers in late September.

Wade appeared in just 46 games for Cleveland before he was dealt back to the Heat in February. He averaged 12 points for Miami after the trade.

The Heat fell to the 76ers in the first round of the 2017-18 playoffs. Wade averaged 16.6 points in that series.
