The market for Dwyane Wade is beginning to really heat up. After reports the Miami Heat low-balled Wade with a $10 million per year offer, there are several teams now vying for the veteran shooting guard.

ESPN.com’s Brian Windhorst reported Friday that the New York Knicks and the Milwaukee Bucks are in contract talks with Wade and could schedule meetings with both teams next week.

According to ESPN.com’s Ramona Shelbourne, Wade wants to be “compensated for his pay cuts.”

Adrian Wojnarowiski of The Vertical reported the Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks and Denver Nuggets are also interested in signing Wade. The Bulls and Nuggets are labeled as the “most aggressive” pursuers of Wade, sources told the website.

The initial $10 million annual offer was a 50 percent pay cut from last season. It’s also worth noting that the Heat and Hassan Whiteside agreed to a four-year, $98 million contract earlier Friday.
