The Miami Heat are still very much in the Dwyane Wade derby—the 13-year veteran guard has reportedly been offered a two-year deal worth $40 million to return to South Beach (the second year being a player option.)
Heat has offered Wade 2 years, $40 million with a player option in second year.

Wade inked a one-year, $20 million pact with the Heat last summer.
Per the AP:
This is the second consecutive summer in which Wade and the Heat have had a rocky time finding common contractual ground, and the issue this time could be more about the length of the deal than the compensation. Wade has left millions on the bargaining table in past negotiations with the Heat, though some of that sacrifice also helped him win championships in 2012 and 2013.
A three-year deal would obviously help him recoup more of what he’s given up in the past.
Wade has spent all 13 of his NBA seasons in Miami and has said several times that he wants to spend his entire career with the club. Wade averaged 19.0 points and 4.6 assists this past season, and was an All-Star pick for the 12th time.
