The custody trial pitting Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade against his ex-wife began in Chicago on Wednesday, and the appointed attorney for the two young boys is telling the court that the children should primarily be with their father.

Attorney Lester Barclay was appointed to represent the best interest of the 8- and 3-year-old boys. He filed a pretrial memo outlining the three recommendations he planned to make during the trial, suggesting Siohvaughn Wade agreeing to "extensive therapy" should be included in all of them.

The trial will resume Monday and is expected to last at least another week after that. Miami opens training camp Sept. 28.
