MIAMI — Dwyane Wade arrived in Miami on Thursday night and he had a message for Heat fans.

“Heat Nation, I haven’t said that in a long time. It feels so good,” Wade said in a video posted by the Miami Heat. “Heat Nation, I’m excited to see you guys. I hope you guys are excited to see me. I can’t wait to get back on the court. I can’t wait to put on that No. 3 in that Miami Heat jersey. I’ll see you guys soon.”

Wade’s message came as part of a video of him and his wife, Gabrielle Union, walking off an airplane after landing in Miami. The Heat re-acquired the greatest player in franchise history Thursday a few hours before the trade deadline by sending a protected 2024 second-round pick to the Cavaliers.

Wade is expected to play in Friday’s home game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
