Dwyane Wade to Cavaliers after Bulls buyout?

ESPN.com's Nick Friedell reports "nobody would be surprised" if Wade did not stay in Chicago.

"Dwyane was a great pro a year ago, and he's been around a lot of different situations", executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said in late June.

The deadline for players to be playoff-eligible with a new team is March 1, and it's expected that a buyout will take place between the Bulls and Wade prior to then - if not well before.

It's pretty interesting to hear about the young Bulls' players frustrations with Wade, though it's quite understandable that they were annoyed by Wade calling them out in the media for not working hard enough when he reportedly didn't practice on many occasions.

Even though Wade was the second-leading scorer for the Bulls last season, the team is undergoing a youth movement and Chicago's roster is deep with shooting guard talent.

A buyout makes the most sense for both sides.

The prospect of Dwyane Wade playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers has only been speculation, considering he's still under contract with the rebuilding Chicago Bulls.

Jayalalithaa died at the Apollo Hospital in Chennai on December 5 previous year after a prolonged illness. The commission of inquiry will be set up and headed by a retired judge of the Madras high court.

Wade still owns a multi-million dollar mansion in Miami, a property that he chose not to sell despite his move to play for the Bulls.

With Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder in tow, LeBron James will lean on more depth in the absence of Irving.

If there's one thing Miami fans have learned over the past few years, it's that no National Basketball Association offseason would be complete without a conspiracy theory involving a prominent player linked to the Heat.

As it turns out, however, Wade might not be getting all of that amount, and he might not even spend that much time with the Bulls this upcoming season. That would be a concern coming into a crowded rotation in Denver but Wade's skill off the ball, which is becoming a prerequisite to play in the Nuggets' offense, would help him thrive next to Jokic.

That hasn't stopped the Wade rumors from slowing down, especially when it comes to his former team, the Miami Heat.

Wade will ultimately have to decide what type of role he wants if he's bought out in Chicago, but Denver, with their history of engagement with Wade, could be a logical landing spot.
