Report: Bulls, Wade reach buyout

Dwyane Wade brings a whole new element to the Cavaliers.

As expected, the Chicago Bulls and guard Dwyane Wade have reached a buyout agreement, according to the Chicago Tribune.

ESPN is adding that the Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder are the teams to watch out for in the Wade sweepstakes, with LeBron James and the Cavs as the clear frontrunners to sign the future Hall of Famer.

After the Bulls traded Jimmy Butler on draft night, insiders around the league knew it was just a matter of time until Wade was on his way out as well. Chicago is beginning a long rebuild process and Wade had no aspirations of being a part of it.

Wade, 35, averaged 18.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game last season, his first in Chicago after spending 13 years in Miami.

  1. Looks like DW gave the Bulls 8 million back. My oh my oh my.

  2. This will be VERY interesting to see where D Wade’s head is at. He’s done the LBJ thing before. Will he being willing to defer to LBJ once again in his career? We’ll see how important a championship run really is to him. He could start in San Antonio for sure ahead of Green. He can start here but Miami already told him they want him off the bench. I hope he comes here and we move JR to the bench back to his old sixth man role. Big factor is his boys since he has full custody. I hope he decides quickly. If he chooses us the sooner he’s in camp the better for team.

  3. So if DW comes here I’m guessing he crashes at Lebrons pad.

  4. If Wade would of been bought out yesterday do you think they would have traded TT for Melo to keep LeBron long term? CP3 would even be able to join next year.

  5. Here’s the next move we should make (Assuming Wade signs with us):
    Shump, Jefferson and Osman to Suns..
    Tyson Chandler to Cavs.

    Clears space for Wade and provides us a legit rim protecting back-up (or starting) center. May have to throw a second round pick in there to get them to make deal.
