Sam Alipour at the All-Star Game
"Need further proof that D-Wade isn't going anywhere? Sources tell me that Wade has been actively wooing potential free agents this weekend, selling them on the Heat. We'll spill one bean: A source says the resourceful All-Star has been in the ear of East teammate Chris Bosh about coming to Miami this summer, if he's not traded to the Heat by the 18th, of course. Another source says Wade hasn't had a similar discussion with Amare Stoudemire, who's all but guaranteed to opt out of his contract this summer if he's not traded by the deadline. The source provided one possible explanation: most everyone, the All-Star participants included, believes Stoudemire will be dealt before the deadline."
