Is Dwyane Wade's next stop Cleveland?

Posted September 26, 2017

According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls and Wade have agreed to a contract buyout, which means Wade will become a restricted free agent and free to sign anywhere this season.

According to ESPN's National Basketball Association insider, Adrian Wojnarowski, multiple teams are interested in the 35-year-old's services, including a potential reunion with ex-Miami teammate LeBron James in Cleveland.

According to the Daily Thunder, an ESPN TrueHoop affiliate covering the Oklahoma City Thunder, both Carmelo Anthony and Paul George, stars that have recently joined OKC, are recruiting Wade to join them. Had he been there at all, the buyout question would have overshadowed the start of Chicago's season - something apparently neither side wanted.

Wade, who also led the Heat to a title in 2006, averaged 18.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists for the Bulls last season.

Wade won't be demanding a lot in terms of a contract, as the four teams mentioned above don't have a lot of money to splash on him.

Wade would bring in a veteran insight that is not present on this team and could aid the progression of Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram.

It was a busy Sunday for the Chicago Bulls.

But there's a bigger problem with the idea of Wade going to Cleveland: He's a awful fit, not only for their team's roster but also in a direct matchup with the Cavs' biggest obstacle to a championship. Oklahoma City Thunder? San Antonio Spurs?

The Cleveland Cavaliers seem to have a knack for attracting aging, valuable players this offseason.

With the Cavs already having big scorers in James, Kevin Love and eventually Thomas, coach Tyronn Lue will need to make some changes in his offense if the 15th-year pro is added and moved into the starting lineup.

James posted on Instagram after working out with Wade: "To say we had a great week of work would be an understatement".
