Dwyane Wade, Bulls Reach Buyout

Published

on

The inevitable has finally happened. The Chicago Bulls and future Hall of Fame shooting guard Dwyane Wade have reached an agreement on a buyout, making him a free agent. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Cleveland, San Antonio and Miami are the leaders to sign Wade, but Oklahoma City could be a factor with their recent acquisition of Carmelo Anthony.

In his one season in Chicago Wade averaged 18.3 points per game in only 29.9 minutes. Wade is not nearly the explosive athlete and finisher around the rim that he once was, but he is still a very good player and will bring value to whichever team is able to sign him. The down-side of signing him is that he will sit out a good number of games to try and stay fresh over the course of the season.

Adrian Wojnarowski is also reporting that Wade gave back about $8 million of his $23.8 million salary to help facilitate this buyout, which shows that he really wanted out of Chicago because he wants to go play for a contender as he reaches the later years of his career.
