The Miami HEAT announced today that they have re-signed guard Dwyane Wade. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. “Dwyane has been the franchise cornerstone for this team since the day he arrived 11 years ago,” said HEAT President Pat Riley. “He has shown his commitment to the HEAT many times over the course of his career and has always been willing to sacrifice in order to help build this team into a champion. This time is no different. I am ecstatic to have him back in the fold and I am confident that Dwyane, as always, will be leading this team as we look to contend for NBA Championships.” NBA.com

James met with Miami Heat president Pat Riley on Wednesday in Las Vegas to deliver the news, and Riley did his best to try to get James to reconsider, comparing the stability of the Heat organization to the relative instability of the Cavs, who have a meddling owner and have changed general managers and coaches several times in the past few years, according to a source who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Ethan J. Skolnick: In case u missed earlier tweets, yes, the Pat Riley/LeBron James meeting is today in Las Vegas. My gut says it won't be at an $8.99 buffet. Twitter @EthanJSkolnick

Joe Kotoch: Riley wants Wade in Vegas & in the meeting w/ LeBron but potential to backfire too. He knows Wade can't stay healthy & will still carry him. For all those dismissing possibility of LeBron leaving remember he said he didn't need to meet w/ Heat before making a decision. Twitter @Probballdraft

Seven days into free agency, Miami Heat President Pat Riley made his first roster moves to show LeBron James why he should stick around. This much is clear: Riley is confident James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade will return, according to people who have had phone conversations with Riley in the last week. The people spoke to USA TODAY Sports under the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the conversations. USA Today Sports

In the big picture, the Granger and McRoberts agreements give Riley room to present James with a couple of different spending options, including the ability to give Bosh a big contract, too. But the Houston Rockets would love nothing more than to break up the Big Three, and always-aggressive general manager Daryl Morey went to work by offering Bosh a maximum-level contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the talks. USA Today Sports
