D-Wade is going back to his hometown.
After 13 seasons with the Miami Heat, Dwyane Wade is moving on. Wade has informed the Chicago Bulls that he will be signing with them, despite the fact that Miami (and Denver) had more money to offer. Early reports suggest the deal with Chicago is for 2-years, $47 million.
In order to pull off this move, the Bulls will need to unload some contracts and they're working to complete deals to trade Jose Calderon and Mike Dunleavy to help clear space for D-Wade.
Even at 34 years old, Wade averaged 19 points, 4.6 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game for the Heat last season and now he'll get to play alongside one of the best two-way guards in the game, Jimmy Butler. And Rajon Rondo.
The 13-year vet grew up in Chicago but has played his professional entire career in Miami, making 12 All-Star games and winning three NBA titles.
