Wade was not the leader of the LeBron Miami teams, Lebron was.

Looks like he's deciding tomorrow afternoon or evening

I think he would be a good pick up for the C's. He probably won't sign here but can still score and give a boost to our second unit when they struggle.  Kind of like what Green did last year but in a bigger way. However, My guess is he is Cleveland bound to give back to Lebron for his years in Miami and go for one more title chance.

I would be surprised if it isn't Cleveland. I'd welcome him to the C's though!

I'd be surprised if it was Cleveland to be honest. Wade is a prideful man, as he showed when he left for Chicago. I think he might choose to go West and compete against Lebron

I bet he goes to the Thunder.

I think they make a lot of sense as a dark horse.

I hope Cleveland. He would make them worse.

I think wherever he goes, he's a bench player now. He can still score but can't get up and down the court on defense like he used to and doesn't show much interest in trying.

At best, he's Paul Pierce in his Nets year. In just the right situation, a starter but one who plays under 30 mpg.

It's gotta be between the Thunder and the Cavs and currently I have the Thunder in the lead.

With the momentum of the Melo deal it would be a huge splash to add Wade there as well. Russ/Wade/PG/Melo/Adams is a legit lineup that can put up a [dang] good fight against GSW.

However, with the Lebron ties the Cavs make just as much sense.

I also would not mind in the least to see him wear Celtics green this year despite that being a huge longshot.

Kyrie/Rozier
Wade/Smart
Hayward/Brown
Morris/Tatum
Horford/Baynes

I could easily get behind that lineup.
CB Draft 2016:
PG:Tony Parker/Mo Williams
SG:Alec Burks/Manu Ginobili
SF:Al Farouq-Aminu/Jared Dudley/Tony Snell
PF:Dirk Nowitzki/JaMychal Green
C: Deandre Jordan/Roy Hibbert/Alex Len

He's got a much better shot of making the finals if he goes to the Cavs and he'll have a large role especially with IT out.  I'd be surprised if he does anything else.

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.

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



This is the exact thing that bloat his ego. He have won 3 rings already so he doesn't give a dang anymore. He displayed such a nonchalant attitude already with the Bulls and what's funny is the young guys on that Bulls team sided with Rondo instead because Rajon actually took care of them while Dwade was throwing them under the bus along with Jimmy.

When people looked at player comps. for Jaylen before, a lot said his ceiling is Jimmy Butler, but some also said he can be an elite two-way wing player like D. Wade

Don't think he even considers coming here but his leadership and experience could definitely help a lot of our young guys.

They better score 140 per night, because a starting lineup that includes Wade, Love and IT (or Rose) is going to be rough defensively.
