This Is Reportedly Why The Cavs Traded Dwyane Wade

HEAT Acquire Dwyane Wade

The second, a massive three-team deal, netted them Rodney Hood and George Hill.

As the National Basketball Association insider notes, this was Cleveland's way of catering to Wade after it acquired three younger perimeter options in the above-mentioned trades. Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye are reportedly headed to the Lakers in exchange for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. ESPN's Dave McMenamin reported that Cleveland "wanted to do right" by Wade as his role would be reduced. However, after a number of the National Basketball Association trade deadline moves [VIDEO] were complete, the Cavs made a very surprising move.

Wade played 13 seasons for the Heat, winning three titles and a Finals MVP Award in 2006.

As part of a massive team makeover, the Cleveland Cavaliers traded Wade to the Heat before Thursday's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, sources said. This move should improve Wade's fantasy outlook considering he'll get a few more looks now that he's not playing alongside LeBron James at times.

Indianapolis Colts agree terms with Josh McDaniels to become head coach
Now that McDaniels has arrived, some idea of how those assets will be used to reshape this team will start to take shape. He was sacked in December 2010 after the underachieving and splintered Broncos posted an 11-17 record on his watch.

After a tumultuous offseason in 2016 in which James spurned Miami for Cleveland, Wade also left the Heat to sign with his hometown Chicago Bulls.

Wade is finally going home. He averaged 23.7 points, 5.8 assists, and 4.8 rebounds per game with the team.

Now back with the franchise that selected him fifth overall in the 2003 draft, Wade will presumably offer a boost off the bench and a strong veteran presence in the locker room as the Heat intensify their pursuit of a postseason berth.

Isaiah Thomas went from a team expected to compete for the National Basketball Association title to a team that is 22-31 and has little chance of competing at all this season.
