Cavaliers send Wade back home to Miami

Dwyane Wade will once again be wearing a Miami uniform as the Cavaliers dealt him to the Heat for a second-round draft pick Thursday.

Dwyane Wade said last week before the Cleveland Cavaliers he would “love” to finish his career as a Miami Heat.

Thursday, the Cavaliers granted Wade’s request, sending him to the Heat in exchange for a heavily protected second-round draft pick, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

After negotiating a buyout with the Chicago Bulls last summer, Wade signed a one-year deal with the Cavaliers for the NBA minimum.

Wade’s trade comes after a flurry of activity for the Cavs — in which they also traded Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye (to the Los Angeles Lakers), Derrick Rose and Jae Crowder (to the Utah Jazz), and Iman Shumpert (to the Sacramento Kings).

The Cavs also sent their own first-round draft pick to LA, while managing to hang on to the Brooklyn pick.

  1. With all the crap Gilbert gets, this was a class all the way. More should be made of it to let those outside NE Ohio know.
