Dwyane Wade’s jersey exchange with Celtics guard Terry Rozier following Thursday’s game was pre-planned … in November. “Let’s [go back to] late November,” Wade said with a smile before the Heat hosted the Grizzlies on Saturday. “I wake up the next day, and I got a text at 4 in the morning from Terry Rozier. He’s like, ‘Yo, I’m going to need that jersey.’ So I go and I look at when we’re playing them, thinking we’re about to play Boston. I’m like, ‘We don’t play y’all till January.’ So he put his request in early and let me know at 4 in the morning to make sure that when we play them he needed that jersey. We have that kind of relationship.”
