The Bulls and Dwyane Wade have reached agreement on a buyout, per sources.


Woj: Cleveland, san antonio, Miami are leading teams for wade. Okc could be in play

Any ideas where he's going? Imagine he goes to okc. also I think lebron could be begging him to come after losing irving too

You should add a poll to see where many people think he will end up.

My guess? Cleveland.

OKC is an intriguing option too especially with his friend, Melo there, but I think Wade is more willing to play in an easier conference now than the battlefield that is the West.

It would be funny if he joins the Celtics. But his ego could really hurt the locker room next season as he already did with the Bulls.

If he goes to the cavs, the cavs-celtics season opener is going to break viewership records.

LOL if Wade goes to Boston...

The season opener will be Lebron vs (Wade And Kyrie) HAHAHA

I mean without their help Lebron isn't winning any Finals...  :P

It'd be cool if Wade joined Boston to spite LeBron for bailing on the team, but he just doesn't fit. Would the cavs be able to give anything over the vet min? I suppose it wouldn't matter if he's still getting paid from the Bulls though...

It would be very funny if he joined The Warriors... It'd be a big middle finger to LeBron! I don't think wade has much left... He looked cooked in last years playoffs!

I've never had an issue with Wade's ego.  I don't feel his ego is nearly as bad as half the big name stars out there, and at least Wade has the portfolio to back it up:

* 3x NBA Champion
* 12x All-Star
* 2x All-Defensive 2nd team 
* Career averages of 23 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds, 1.6 steals, 0.9 blocks

We're talking about a surefire Hall of Famer, and unlike some greats (e.g. Lebron) nobody can every question Dwyane Wade's competiveness - he plays HARD every night and played with the same type of edge as Kobe and MJ. Wade played with two of the greatest players ever to play the game (Lebron and Shaq) and in both cases it was Wade who was the leader of those teams.

The only thing I don't like about wade is that he is sometimes bordering on TOO competitive - I do consider him a dirty player, and IMHO he will do whatever it takes to win, even his actions have a very high risk of causing injury to another player.

But as a veteran leader and competitor I'd love to have Wade on this team - I think adding him at the SG spot could (which is probably our weakest spot right now) puts us on par with the Cavs, maybe even above them.  He's not the scorer or player he once was, but he can still fill it up on occasion and would be a perfect 3rd scorer for our team given that every other guy on our starting unit (Kyrie, Hayward, Morris, Horford) has the ability to stretch the floor - making Wade's lack of outside shooting a non factor.

I think he'd fit nicely in Brad's system too.  Wade is a skilled passer with excellent basketball IQ who can play and guard three positions (1 through 3).  He can score, defend (in stretches), rebound, pass, handle the ball - and he brings championship experience.

We kind of have a hole at the 2 that wade would fill nicely. My question with wade is if he can play many minutes but with brown/smart able to back him up, I have no issues


Imagine brown, wade and Irving in transition. Wade is a lot more useful than Andrew bogut or Thomas robinson. We're probably not in the running for wade but its an interesting thought

I guess at the end of the day, smart gives us what old man wade gives nowadays . Tough D and a Shot here and there

I bet he goes to the Thunder.
