Wade told the newspaper he had dinner with Bosh and saw Johnson at a Brand Jordan event.
Wade has made it clear he would like to return to Miami and bring another big-name free agent with him. But he insisted to the newspaper: "I haven't started recruiting yet."
"My friends are the guys that are in the league," Wade told the Sun-Sentinel. "Some of my closest friends in the NBA happen to be certain guys that are up in this free-agent market. Yeah, it's going to be like that. Like I said, I don't worry about it. I smile and I keep on going with my day.
"Me and Chris have been friends since we came into the NBA. We signed with the same agent. So we can't eat together? It's all good. We understand what's going to come about from anything that goes on. But, no worries, it's just friends eating dinner."
