While the Miami Heat have a plethora of young talent on their roster, there is still uncertainty about Dwyane Wade's future in the NBA.

There's no debating that he's the greatest player in the franchise' history. However, Wade is already 36 years old and won't commit to his 16th season in the association just yet.

Despite averaging 12.0 points and 3.1 assists in limited action with Miami in 2018, Wade once again reiterated the fact that he's not ready to make a final decision.

"I wish I had an answer for you," Wade said. "I don't have it today."

He also said that his decision could come after the Heat's media day, which is scheduled for Sept. 24.

Wade hasn't given a deadline for when he'll finally answer the question about his playing career. Yet, Miami's management has also avoided applying any pressure on the respected veteran.

The Heat don't have much cap space, but they can offer Wade their $5.3 million taxpayer mid-level exception

Considering that the regular season is about one month away, it'll be interesting to see how this saga with Wade ultimately finishes.
