Dwyane Wade Buyout: Cleveland Cavaliers frontrunners to sign veteran guard

Dwyane Wade and the Bulls agree to a buyout

According to the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls and Wade have reached an agreement on a buyout of his $23.8 million option for the 2017-18 season, resulting in Wade becoming a free agent.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Wade gave up approximately $8 million in salary in order to obtain the buyout. He has called it his second home and he played his entire career except for one season playing for the Heat. She noted that the Heat have "spent a lot on guards", and that Wade's possible role on the team could be a factor in his decision. Wade still has that superstar draw, and as long as his contract does not impede long-term plans, his star power would be huge in LA. It was his lowest point totals since his 2003 rookie season.

Wade is expected to consider teams that could compete for a championship, and the Cavaliers are considered the front runner at this point. "I said when I got here, it was always a dream for me to play here".

A return to Miami, where Wade played his first 13 seasons before leaving on contentious terms last summer, is the sentimental favorite. It's unclear whether that was a function of the Bulls' poor spacing, in which case it could improve with better shooting around him, or Wade's declining athleticism. James and Wade shared four seasons together thriving in South Beach and many offseason with each other's families. Once Wade clears waivers, he can listen to offers and decide which team is a good fit for him.

Morata scores as Chelsea beat Stoke City in a Premier League match
Crouch is ungainly, awkward and not very easy on the eye, but he is effective and Stoke probably need to use him more often. With or without him, Chelsea has so many options up front that the former champions are expected to take the initiative.

On top of that, it's hard to see where there are minutes for Wade to play.

While in the twilight of his career, Wade is still talented, but as a driver and mid-range shooter he's a much different player than current Cavs starter J.R. Smith, who is mostly a catch-and-shoot 3-point specialist. It is only surprising in the sense that there is no real connection with Wade and the team. Not only do they have the easiest path to the NBA Finals, but Wade is already banana boat buds with LeBron.

It will be interesting to see which direction Wade chooses to go in.
