On September 24, 2017, Dwyane Wade and the Bulls decided to part ways after just one season, agreeing in a buyout of Wades remaining years of his contract as a Chicago Bulls. After the buyout was reported 3 teams quickly shows the interest of Wade’s services, the Cavaliers, Spurs and the OKC, but it was the Cavaliers that was the upper hand of acquiring Wade due to LeBron James influence.
Wade has already said before until the rumors of a possible buyout over the Bulls that he will join a team that is a potential title contender and that would be Cleveland in the East which is more likely the favorite in the East in reaching another NBA Finals appearance for the 4th straight year?
Despite the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City shows some interest for Wade and which are also a legit contender for the Western Conference Championship against the favorite super team and defending NBA Champion the Golden State Warriors, Wade decided to join Cleveland because of a much better possibility of being a starter and not just a role player coming out the bench?
Wade, who has a high Basketball IQ like LeBron James will join new Cavaliers comers like former MVP Derrick Rose, last season 5th in MVP list Isiah Thomas, defensive specialist Jae Crowder and the rest of Cavaliers superstars like LeBron James, Kevin Love, JR Smith and Tristan Thompson. Wade has reported of signing a one-year, $2.3 million with the Cavs.
