Will the two stars re-team again in Miami? Wade seems to be pleased with the signing.

Dwyane Wade appears to be thrilled that the Miami Heat have signed Hassan Whiteside to a new contract early Friday morning. Wade took to social media soon after the news come out that the talented big man was returning to Miami.

Wade might have considerably more pocket change once his free agency situation is resolved, with his return to Miami appearing to be more of a question of when, not if, despite earlier reports that he would be open to speaking with other NBA teams once the NBA free agency period began.

However...

Elsewhere, Heat guard Josh Richardson was the first of his teammates to react to the news on social media.

Chris Bosh also chimed in, with the Heat hopeful they can pair him up with Whiteside for years to come if he can stay healthy.

Heat Lifer Udonis Haslem also sent an encouraging message to Whiteside congratulating him not only on the new contract but on all the hard work he put in to get to this point.

Ex-Heat point guard Beno Udrih also took to Twitter to congratulate his former teammate.

Goran Dragic is looking forward to racking up plenty of easy assists to the big man over the years.

And Justise Winslow is also ecstatic that Whiteside is returning to Miami.
