Report: LeBron’s circle ‘fairly confident’ Wade will join Cavs

Could Dwyane Wade return to South Beach if he gets bought out by the Bulls?

Future Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade, who is reportedly going to reach a buyout agreement with the Chicago Bulls at some point during the 2017-18 season, apparently has LeBron James and his camp feeling confident he will come to Cleveland and join the Cavaliers.

Last week, ESPN reported that once bought out by the Bulls, Wade would have his eyes on the Cavs as well as his old team, the Miami Heat.

Wade’s kids are even back at school in South Beach, news that got Heat fans excited about a possible reunion.

But according to a new report by Cleveland.com, James and his associates have gotten a read on Wade and believe the Cavs are at the top of his list.

Per Cleveland.com sports podcast:

“As of right now, people close to James are fairly confident that, at some point this year, Dwyane Wade is going to end up on the Cavs.”

Many around the league expect Wade to be on the Bulls’ roster to start the season, with buyout talks likely coming closer to the February trade deadline.

Wade, 35, averaged 18.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game last season, his first in Chicago.

Bulls vice president John Paxson said in June if Wade wants to pursue a buyout, it will have to be “advantageous” to the club — meaning Wade would have to give a big chunk of the $24 million he’s owed back to the franchise.

It is believed the Bulls want close to $19 million of Wade’s salary.

  1. THEY DONT NEED D-Wade even if Shump gets traded You have JR Korver Rose thomas in rotation. Wade does not fits cavs playing style. can’t shoot threes is not effective on offball, and is not half as effective onball as he was back in his miami days. This is not Happening and if Happens Cavs Backcourt becomes overcrawded. i think wade will go to cavs in 2018 july if King Extends not in 2017/18 midseason
