Dwyane Wade was a little less verbose than LeBron James, but his announcement of where he will play this fall was heartfelt, too.

Writing “Home Is Where The Heart Is…My Home, My City, My House” on Twitter, Wade announced that he will return to the Miami Heat as it reconstitutes two of its Big Three. Wade and the team reached agreement on a four-year, $60-million contract that could be signed as soon as today, according to ESPN.

Wade 32, had opted out of his contract worth $42 million over two years in a futile attempt to help the Heat retain LeBron James. Now, the pay cut helps pay Chris Bosh’s new five-year, $118-million max contract and Luol Deng’s new two-year, $20-million deal.
